Multi-instrumentalist Otto Kinzel (Dust Prophet, Skin Drone) has unleashed his most revealing body of work with the release of “I Bleed For You” which is available now.
A brooding, Industrial journey reminiscent of the more tribal elements of early Ministry or Misery Loves Co., “I Bleed For You” is inspired by the still unsolved murder of Swedish Au Pair Karina Holmer in Boston in 1996 and was originally slated to be part of a short film based on the story (A Dream of Distant Skies, which you can watch in all its’ David Lynch-ian glory by clicking here).
Sonically, the track is mesmerizing with Kinzel’s soaring guitar lines evoking Robby Krieger and this kind of mysticism that The Doors did so well. Pair that with Sarah Wappler’s hypnotic keys taking the track to a decidedly more eerie realm alongside Kinzel’s impassioned screams (Not unlike the creepy cries of “Mr Gein!!!” at the conclusion of Slayer’s similarly macabre “Dead Skin Mask”) and you have yourself one doozy of a dark anthem to start 2020 with.
