Oh my God, it’s alive!
The new Minerva Wakes track is a full-on banger.
Starting with an evil droning hum, it builds up into dense and dark beat-driven mid-pace techno. Over this din Jo D’Arc (for it is she!) intones a series of verse words before we get into some full-on wailing, some of it artificially manipulated.
The percussive runs and throbbing bassline also help to propel this thing forward in the direction of sonic oblivion, until the priestess finally runs out of steam and we can rest easy once again.
