The Black Queen: Fever Daydream
Dillinger frontman dials down the metal
Were it not for the inclusion of Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato within its ranks then it would be questionable whether The Black Queen should have any place being reviewed here at Hammer.
Why else would a record that recalls everything from early 80s synth-pop to monochrome electronica, but very, very few ‘rock’ influences, make it into our pages? It’s best not to question it, and instead enjoy the journey, the craft and the eerily beautiful poise of this excellent record.
