Psyclon Nine – Money And Sex And Death (Single Review)

Psyclon Nine – Money And Sex And Death (Single Review)

Dark Industrial music comes in many flavors, but no one does it quite like Psyclon Nine. Born in 2000, and hailing from San Francisco, CA, they made their mark on the scene by mixing Terror EBM, Industrial, gothic, darkwave, and even Black Metal with some other unique undertones into the witches brew. In enough words, Psyclon Nine tends to breathe light from the shadows, and only creeps out into the world at night when it is least expected.

An impressive part of the Industrial and Gothic scene, producing six studio albums to date, they still remain uncovered in many aspects of the mainstream world, but maybe that is just their prerogative. Which leads us to the release of their latest single on June 3, 2022. Entitled “Money And Sex And Death,” it is four minutes of a very strong dose of pain and release that pulsates through the your ears in a very compatible way.

Filled with Nero Bellum’s ferocious scream filled drones, plus all the dark, dirty Industrial vibes the west coast has to offer, it captures more than just a track off their newest album Less To Heaven which is set of release on August 19th through Metropolis Records. In fact, it captures the essence of the band, and a unique stylistic approach to very dark, but wildly expressive music.

As a personal favorite approach of a musical combination to date, it is a well digested tease of the nine tracks which will be featured on Less To Heaven. However, nothing compares to a live experience with Psyclon Nine, so hopefully their will be a tour to follow up their brand new album. Excited for more, Cryptic Rock gives “Money And Sex And Death” 4.5 out of 5 stars.
