Yet another band that gets a lot of praise during
our regular drinking fests, but has yet to be reviewed (album
wise, at least) on the site.
One of those odd bands that somehow appeals to both PostLibyan
and myself, The Black Heart Procession make neo-gothic dirges
and drop in a pinch of southwestern country for seasoning. The
end result is an intoxicating blend of moods, somewhat depressed
and dour, but beautiful and vivid nonetheless. A heady mixture
of Godspeed You Black Emperor!
and 16 Horsepower, reminiscent
cowpoke Goth. Amore Del Tropico is the group’s best effort
