Label: Fire Talk
Listening to WEEPING ICON's debut album is to enter a dim catacomb of psychical catharsis. Urgent yet calculated riffs rip through a thunderous pummel of percussion, an anomalous blend of punk and psychedelic drumming carries the songs with an atmosphere of organized chaos. Lyrically they are both serious and sarcastic, trading off vocalists to confront issues central to a generation, dosing listeners with a controlled sense of horror and humor like flavors in a dish. The band's debut record 'Weeping Icon' is a collection of 7 songs that archive the metamorphosis into heavier and more provocative territories. In keeping with their live performance, a sequence of dystopian sound interludes completes the album, serving as guided meditations between the candid subversive fury of the main tracks. Recorded and mixed by UNIFORM's Ben Greenberg and mastered by Jonathan Schenke in New York City.
