Love Exchange Failure is the stunning forthcoming full-length from Odessa, Ukraine-based post-Black Metal conjurors WHITE WARD


WHITE WARD "The music both ascends and seems to be pulverizing bedrock at the same time, with wrenching howls and impassioned singing magnifying the music's thrilling yet wrenching assault on the senses. The saxophone returns at the end, more frenzied and forlorn than before, as the ravaging intensity of the music crests one last time."
No Clean Singing on "Dead Heart Confession"

Love Exchange Failure is the stunning forthcoming full-length from Odessa, Ukraine-based post-Black Metal conjurors WHITE WARD. Slated for release next month via Debemur Morti Productions, and trailing an avalanche of accolades for the "deviant black metal noir" of 2017 debut Futility Report, WHITE WARD presents the next step of their rapid evolution into an increasingly unique musical force.
On Love Exchange Failure, the band channels Bohren And Der Club Of Gore, composer Angelo Badalamenti, and contemporary blackened majesty into an eclectic set of visionary hymns that fuse late-night metropolitan contemplation, psychological horror, intoxicating melodicism, and primeval, animal-state ferocity. Doused in poise, creativity, and dynamism, Love Exchange Failure blends brushed drums, reverberant piano, a variety of guesting clean vocalists, and neo-noir saxophone within an architecture of first-rate contemporary misanthropic black metal.



No Clean Singing comments : "Perhaps even more so than on the first album, venturing into the new one is like wandering unfamiliar, fog-shrouded urban streets at night, bombarded by raucous sounds and bright lights distorted by the mist, feeling both exhilarated and fearful, ducking into dingy alleyways to escape hulking shadows pregnant with violence, or to search for something more than the cold indifference of glazed eyes in emaciated figures that appear like wraiths as they pass under the street lights and then vanish again, and encountering the fleeting sounds of jazz from open doorways as you hurry along, wondering what the next bend in your crooked path will reveal."
