Dystopian Society - Cages LP
Italian anarcho deathrock. Black Vinyl

Mass Media Records is proud to present to you one of the greatest modern death rock albums we have heard in Italy’s Dystopian Society’s debut album CAGES. Bringing together the classic elements of gothic post punk with a distinct social commentary found within the most resounding peace punk manifestos, CAGES is a powerful document of punk music turned introspective and dark but not leaving behind its urgency and timeless angst. The bass lines on this record set the tone throughout, simple and penetrating cycles of existential anguish with the faintest light of hope glimmering through a seemingly hopeless condition. The guitar work on this album assures that this isn’t a completely helpless world view and brings forth a sense of powerful rebellion as well as complementing melodies. Add to this the drums and vocals that affirm that Dystopian Society is a death ROCK band with passionate drive that rises far above the cemetery bound pacing of many death rock bands. This is one of those records that didn’t even take more than a few listens to inspire the most jaded punk into feeling that she is not alone with not only her connection to the classic sounds of death rock that gave her a love for music as a youth but also to the very idea of punk music as an artistic expression of political and personal turmoil in the current era.

From Cvlt Nations Oliver Sheppard:Dystopian Society’s Cages is one of the best purist deathrock LPs of 2012 I have heard. This power trio bring on old school deathrock solidly in the vein of early, Rikk Agnew-powered Christian Death, or Voodoo Church, or the Superheroines. Along with Blue Cross, Tanzkommando Untergang, and Arctic Flowers, they point the way forward for dark gothy post punk. Dystopian Society’s 2012 Cages LP is highly recommended. Although the members are from Italy, they sing in English. The liner notes and lyrics reveal that there is a real intelligence behind the band; none of the songs are stereotypical “graveyards and bats” fare, although the atmosphrics are suitably gloomy.
