THIRD TESTAMENT is, fittingly, the third album by Canadian post-punk/electronic duo SEMEN PRIEST. Evolving from the “industrial vapor wave” of their debut, the duo’s previous tape, Disco Horribilis, dallied with EBM tones. On their latest outing Epididymis Rex and Zsa Zsa La Borg dilly with a harder-edged sound inspired by classic ’80s and ’90s Wax Trax! records bands.

CALL IT: Post-Punk, Disco, Industrial. Electronic, Vapour Wave
SONIC COUSIN TO: PiL, Revolting Cocks, Underworld, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult

“Toronto’s Semen Priest make some of the best gothic infused disco/post-punk this side of Silent Shout favourite Femminielli. Those of you who follow the blog know that a comparison to the Montreal italo-disco king is one of the highest honours that we can bestow on a band, and ‘Person Suit’ hits all the notes: an epically long song, half-sung spoken-word vocals over funky synths and a bass-line made for a late-night after-party … This album is an excellent foray into a dark underbelly of Canadian electronic music.” ~ Silent Shout

“Spraying us with another blast of sludgy … ‘Wrong Number’ is a crunchy post-punk stomper … “ ~ Quick Before It Melts

Disco Horribilis: Latin. “To Learn of the terrible”; “Horrible dance music”

Canadian dark disco provocateurs SEMEN PRIEST (remember when they sent us a blood-filled condom?) are back with their second album. More groove and less blood this time out, but no less bile. In support of self-abuse/love, in protest of rape culture & violence against women. Rex and Zsa Zsa call for the downfall of crack-smoking mayors and burning the perpetrators of acid attacks.

SONIC COUSIN TO: Underworld, Soft Cell, any two Acid House compilations playing at the same time, Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb, Thrill Kill Kult, 1000 Homo DJs, Man Made Hill, Bile Sister.
