This is a quiet track that does a lot of damage, shit seems to be getting darker from him and ranking on my internal mania scale, really impressed with WIFE, and looking forward to his debut on Tri-Angle next year. JAM THE SHIt out OF TRAILS, YOU WILL NOT BE soRRY!!!
From the Dazed Digital INterview Track Preview:
“James Kelly is the frontman of cerebral black metal group Altar Of Plagues, who recently debuted his new electronic project WIFE. We’ve already seen the ritualistic video for ‘Bodies’ in which he caresses antlers and gorges on a fresh peach, and today Dazed Digital premieres ‘Trials’, the second video from his forthcoming Stoic EP (Left Blank). Kelly used his own footage of sea anemones to create the video’s vaguely menacing ambiance, as Stephen Lordan sings and bellows “A trial is not an act of…/ The guilt is not an act of…” amongst rumbling bass and warm synth static. It all bodes incredibly well for his debut album, to be released in 2013 by the esteemed Tri Angle Records. We caught up with Kelly to find out more about the mesmerising video.”
