Thomas Mayo – The Man Who Damns Gods

When making “dark” music, there’s a fine line to walk between impressively brooding and hilarious parody. Thomas Mayo manages to stay on the right side of the execution with his three song EP, The Man Who Damns Gods. Admittedly, there’s a heavy vocal fry throughout the lyrics that feels almost painful at times but that stretch and strain works especially well on tracks like “The Fall” where the guitars provide a brighter contrast.

If I had to make a comparison, I’d say if you ever enjoyed the likes of White Zombie and Interpol and the lyrical content of The Cure or New Order, you’ll find something to enjoy here.
