Exclusive Album Stream - Beastmilk, 'Climax'
 

One of the down-low delights of 2012 was ‘Use Your Deluge’, the debut seven-inch by clandestine Finns Beastmilk. Despite being a heroically hook-packed take on early-’80s post-punk and goth, it mainly found favour in metal circles – vocalist Kvohst’s background includes various bands of that nature. But anyone who’s enjoyed this year’s Iceage and Savages full-lengths should embrace this splendid debut album. Recorded by esteemed hardcore producer Kurt Ballou, ‘Climax’ polishes Beastmilk’s iron-curtained grandiosity slightly (‘Ghosts Out Of Focus’ is eerily like Suede), while maintaining the Cold War-era paranoia in their lyrics. Basslines slash through fog, drums march us into battle and it becomes clear that Beastmilk offer ample sustenance for winter. Stream the album exclusively below.
