Current 93 – Dog’s Blood Rising [CD]
Originally released in 1985 in an edition of 1000 copies, Dogs Blood Rising was the second full-length release from Current 93. This highly limited edition reissue has been "significantly restored and remastered", presented in a fashion that reproduces the original edition as closely as possible.
Capturing Current 93 at their most experimental, Dogs Blood Rising carries an immense power, with David Tibet's diabolic utterances in truly chilling form, dissolved into the gothic/industrial soundscape by a Stephen Stapleton and co.
This material is far-removed from the modern-day Current 93 apocalyptic folk aesthetic, taking on a far more extreme and viscerally challenging form, but nonetheless the lyrical themes and unique idiom the band currently employ are still very much traceable to this point in their career.
