Igorrr aren’t the first group to combine metallic aggression with an electronic sheen and classical-music pomp, but the way they fuse it all together is exceedingly strange. On the French collective’s latest album, Savage Sinusoid, dueling vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec are opposing forces. Lunoir bellows with an aggressive, guttural hardcore intensity, whereas Le Prunenac’s operatic wailing soars with a stirring power. Underneath it all, mastermind Gautier Serre manipulates an intense fusillade of throttling electronics, percussion and sampled guitars layered with traces of sitar. Some interludes exude a chamber music–style prettiness and delicacy that’s soon crushed when the wall of sound comes down again. GosT is a masked one-man machine, cranking out foreboding metallic passages that shift into electronic soundscapes. Expect a night of terror that’s as visually and musically unsettling as a nightmare.
