CTA makes A.V. Club’s Top 5 for December

Awesome mention in the A.V. Club this month:


Countdown To Armageddon, Through The Wires
One of the many great things about Killing Joke and Amebix is the way these two granddads of abrasive British filth have gotten more epic as the decades pass. Seattle’s Countdown To Armageddon reminds me of that same eroded, degraded angst. The trio’s latest full-length, Through The Wires, wraps spectral guitars around a terse, pulsing, post-punk rhythm section, then tops it with a crown of thorny blasphemy. Not to mention a bleakly melodic edge to offset its more scarifying, horrifying tendencies. Ethereal crust? Bring it the fuck on. – Jason Heller
