The Tower

The Tower by Xetas.

Tower, as in the Tarot Card, going from the cover illustration.

[The Tower] …follows immediately after The Devil in all Tarots that contain it, and is associated with sudden, disruptive, revelation, and potentially destructive change.

Shouty vocals, distorted guitars, blistering tempos, and a tight band. Somewhere in the vicinity of Albini’s bands. Located somewhere South of Superchunk and West of Discord, (but my references for this type of music are so stale, they’d probably say they’re from a completely different state. Well, Austin, Texas, to be exact.) Noisy and not particularly anthemic, the closest they get to sing-a-long is the pleasantly syncopated chorus of “The Silence”, “Is it easier to die, than try, rotting on the vine?” A motivational sentiment I can get behind.
