Man, I still can’t get enough of that album cover up there. So colorful… so hallucinatory… something like a womb with a skull at the business end and claws cradling the fetus. How can you not want to gird your loins and dive into the music to see what strange sensations lie in wait? I sure wanted to. And I’m sure glad I did.
The artwork was created by Shawn Knight, who also contributes his vocal talents to Child Bite, the veteran Detroit-area band whose line-up also includes Sean Clancy (bass), Brandon Sczomak (guitar), and Jeff Kraus (drums). The name of the album is Negative Noise, and yes indeed, it’s a strange and thoroughly invigorating trip — from which we have the pleasure of delivering the premiere of a song called “Video Blood“.
