It’s official: Author & Punisher’s forthcoming album Beastland is… well, beastly. There are still three months left of 2018 in which bands release albums (very few releases typically come in December), but I’m gonna say now that it’ll probably end up on my “Best of 2018” list.
I say this because I fell in love with the first single “Nihil Strength” — and its riveting video — and I’m just as into Tristan Shone’s latest, “Night Terror.” Whereas “Nihil Strength” was a bit more of an upbeat banger, “Night Terror” feels slower and more introspective even though the tempos aren’t all that different. It’s the sonic palettes that set the two tracks apart, with the latest showcasing a more spooky, morose, heroin den kinda vibe to the former single’s aggressive grooves. It still hits hard, just in a different way, and that’s why I have full faith that Beastland is gonna deliver: diversity and dynamics are key.
