EP Review: Maleficent – Demize
Taking an industrial approach to the Queen Adreena fucked-up beauty vibe, Maleficent have always had a reputation for theatrical stage shows, and have managed to carry this extravagant, deranged and haunting style onto this, their debut CD.
Taking elements of KMFDM, Garbage and Marilyn Manson, this manages to be both alluring and disturbing, taking the electronic groove of their industrial side and mixing it with the gothic and undeniably sexually charged vocal of Maleficent Martini, ably backed up by the threatening growl of male lead Mortimer Cain.
All of which makes this the perfect band to take on an industrial cover version of Nick Cave’s Where The Wild Roses Grow, creating an incredibly haunting and theatrical piece, that fits perfectly within their original material
This is not one for the faint-hearted, but for those with a taste for the fucked-up, it’s definitely worth checking out.
