Know How To Carry A Whip by Corrections House is the dark follow-up to 2013’s Last City Zero. The electronic metal band are a collective made up from members of Eyehategod, Neurosis, Yakuza and Minsk. The songs have their foundations built on loops and beats with the metallic riffs laid on top. Ostensibly being of equal importance to the music the band have a spin doctor-type figure in Seward Fairbury who spreads the word about their sound.
7/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
Know How To Carry A Whip is an uncomfortable experience. It’s negative, hopeless, and self-destructive. Simultaneously it’s a iron-fisted chokehold and a shot in the gut. The experimental factor is a refreshing detour from standard supergroup fare. This is the oppressive soundtrack to a loveless and ruinous modern world, and the sound of a boot stomping on a human face forever, but it is an eclectic and highly experimental record. The binding factor is the overarching militant and dystopian atmosphere, which comes crashing down like a throng of riot police. This harsh and bludgeoning sonic assault is contrasted with nocturnal jazz pieces accompanied by Mike IX Williams’ junkie poetry. It’s a bleak vision of a broken future, yet mirrors the present through a dark reflection on urban isolation.
