L//D//R ‎– Shadow//World (2018)

Discogs.com

When I was looking for music to add to my “women in extreme music” playlist, I ran into a name that did not ring a bell: Lana Del Rabies. Now that is a funny artist name. Del Rabies has two albums out, but on Deathcomb Arc. A label that I did not know.

“Shadow//World” has a sound that is somewhat industrial, but different. Repeated rhythms give a bit of an ‘industrial vibe’ and the weird sounds that Del Rabies sometimes uses perhaps even more so, but different from your typical industrial album. A notable part of the music are Del Rabies’ varied vocals; from softly sung to screaming to (slightly) distorted. There are ‘unpleasant sounds’ and distorted rhythms. Indeed, I think an industrial audience may like it. I must say that I do.
