Mother Of Fire: “Tortoise And The Snake”
Local trio Mother of Fire have a grip of new tunes available from their forthcoming Feral Children LP over at their soundcloud site. We mentioned “Smoke” the other day—now we present “Tortoise And The Snake,” a frighteningly intense jaunt through your nightmares. While the last tune was a bit heavier on the drone, “Tortoise” is a classic example of Mother of Fire’s violin-led madness. Lead vocalist Naomi Joy chants her lyrics throughout the tune, accompanied by her literally “snaky,” slithering violin. The peaks of the song’s energy coincide with Joy’s becoming vocally unhinged, crying out her words like some of incensed primal form of worship. Only a few more weeks until Feral Children’s official April 20th release date.
