Blood of the Grove
Fifth album by Lakes squares the circle with bleak folk, medieval wanderings and dark post-punk. Ten new songs, simple yet evocative, direct but solemn. Think of Rose Clouds of Holocaust-era Death in June covering Discharge’s “Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing.” For fans of Current 93 and Sol Invictus, Joy Of Life, and Above The Ruins, plus domestic heroes Strength Through Joy. Black wax in black inner sleeves and pic sleeves printed in black also on the inner side.
