Limnus / Press

“Limnus knows how to mingle with ambiance, industrial punk, and gothic semantics. You can tell they took their time in production and made sure the tracks weren’t hollow but filled out with great flourishes that never overwhelm the songs. Pick up the album and enjoy a return to a dynamic genre from a group that is passionate about their craft. This album kicks major ass and I find myself keeping it queued for play in my car constantly. Keep fighting the good fight, guys. The genre is begging for great material and you brought a kick ass album to the table. Hats off.”

"Strikingly, the Bay Area's Limnus weave gothic structures into more traditional hardcore and create a beast that is both distinct as well as recognizable. " "On their debut release, The Nether EP, the band acknowledges both its Bauhaus/Dead Can Dance education with their Bad Religion leanings. Although the band kicks off with a rapid circle pit inducer, on the same song, they morph into an almost baroque, evenly paced dirge. The band continues this skill throughout the EP until where it is most noticeable on "Coffin Nails", where the band snaps from a thrasher directly into a masterful soundscape, complete with distant violins and hushed wails " "Limnus might still be finding their footing, but if their trend of mixing different styles together continues and they allow the melange to flow naturally, they'll be one of the first bands to successfully blend punk's energy with goth's ennui, which is one hell of a feat in and of itself.
