Guitars as jet engines; guitars as haunted electronics; guitars as filling-melting white heat: A Place To Bury Strangers' 2012 album Worship is explosive, visceral, and dark. APTBS' DIY-braintrust of Death By Audio wizard Oliver Ackerman and bassist Dion Lunadon continue the evolution of songwriting that began with Onwards to the Wall, the band's 2011 EP. Now on Worship, they interweave threads of krautrock, dream-pop, and 80s goth without ever losing the edge that is quintessentially Strangers. Unhinged dissonance is artfully framed within a fiercely dynamic and assured melodic sensibility.

They have no rivals. I really thought December Sound came close to these guys a few years back, don't know what happened to them. Still, this is cool stuff.
pop-hook core lies bubbling in the belly of dance-crazed demons rockin' on razor blades.
An attack-mode experiment mixing melody with the outer limits of ear-screeching volume.
Powerful, invigorating, happy head-ripping music. A place where explosive electronics and
white-hot guitar turbulence mate in a maelstrom of inspired & addictive hypno-terror rock. A
fiercely massive magic missile for the body & brain. Like Jesus & Mary Chain on steroids. Or
D.A.F. whacked out on whiskey. Or Weekend, Suicide & Serena Maneesh jamming together in a
bad mood. Or Beach Boys meet Joy Division in the meth lab. Seriously. Easily the best thing
APTBS has ever recorded and a stand-out moment for music in 2012. Dangerously brilliant!
