"Pretty, ugly, gross, bloody, pissed, catchy, heavy." These are the words spewed from KISSING CANDICE frontman Joey Simpson when describing the bands new album, Blind Until We Burn.
Blind Until We Burn is one of the most blood-drenched doses of violence that has been put to ears. Distinct themes of angry defiance and horror-laced hysteria snake throughout the album, which Simpson bodes, "Sometimes you never see things for what they are until it's too late."
Formed in 2012 from the remnants of Dr. Acula, keyboardist and sample mastermind Joey Simpson was looking to start a project that would combine metal, hardcore, industrial and electronic music in a unique and cinematic fashion. Taking on the role of frontman, Joey hit the studio with producer Jeremy Comitas, and the pair were the first to glue the KISSING CANDICE sound together with the debut EP Murder.
As guitarists Tommy 'Dreamer' Sciro, Walter Dicristina, and bassist Mike Grippo joined the band, their ideas soon spilled into the mix. Simpsons explains, "The KISSING CANDICE sound is always on an incline. Everyone brings their ideas to the table, it's not just one writer for music. Everyone has an input on everything, from guitar riffs to the lyrics to the electronics. "We'll take a riff from someone and cut that in half and add another riff to it and just build off that." Dicristina amends, "We wanted to create a record that sounds as cinematically expressive as our live performances look and feel."
The result is a spirited chunk of roughed-up American metal that is an amalgamation of serial killer thriller, dark romance and witchcraft, woven in a world of hallucinating demons.
