Another month, another massive release from Murkage. I’ve said it before and I will say it again: there’s not many outfits in the UK making music as angry and vital-sounding as this at the moment. Critics might say it’s all a bit overblown but I’d rather have the politicised rantings of Murkage Dave threatening to “leave your city in flames” than the likes of bloody Tribes trying to pretend that grunge didn’t go out of fashion for a reason, any day of the week.
Latest track is Torches, built on a sort of demonic, twisted synth pattern and the demonic, twisted spewings of trader/self-confessed attention seeker Alessio Rastani, who famously uttered the line “governments don’t rule the world, Goldman Sachs rules the world”. It’s not quite up there with Paperweight but not a lot is really, is it. You can watch the Torches video below and grab an MP3 by heading over to murkage.net (also be sure to check out the remixes by Dash Total’d, KEE and Star One).
