"Neither Virtue Nor Anger" is the debut double album from italian Sonic Jesus.
Recorded in their studio between 2013 and 2014, Neither Virtue Nor Anger is something beyond the colourful blend of 60s Psychedelia, Folk, Krautrock, Shoegaze and Post-Punk anticipated by Locomotive. The more it progresses, the more it turns into a desperate stomping Bacchanalia, spiced up with an hypnotic flavour and distorted atmosphere a la Faust. Obscure ceremonies for Greek-Roman mystery rituals, songs like My Lunacy and Cancer are the perfect soundtrack for a futuristic and dystopian Fellini‚Äôs Satyricon.
The album features the artwork of prominent Italian artist Mirco Maracci. His work has been exhibited in Palazzo Taverna in Roma in 2014, along with Andy Warhol, Giorgio De Chirico, Keith Haring and Amedeo Modigliani.
Mixed by Fabio Vedardo at Circe (as in the mythological character) Digital Studio and mastered by Brett Orrison at The Austin Recording Service.
