I don’t know too much about Sol Invictus but I do know that it’s fucking weird that Razorcake got a copy of this for review. This isn’t bad by any stretch, but I’d describe this as an acoustic-based Joy Division, for those of you who don’t keep track of English weirdoes like Death In June or Current ‘93. One of these dudes used to be in Death In June, too, if that tells you anything. This here is one of those records/bands that is sort of pointless to review. Chances are, I’m not going to say anything that makes someone who doesn’t know who they are buy the record and anyone who does know who they are pre-ordered it forever ago.
