Lunacy, the project of Pennsylvania-based electronic musician Nick Kulp,
debuted with the cassette
Resurgence Of Compulsion (Time Castle Tapes, 2016) that gathers songs
in different styles, from the
gothic dirge Obscurity Game to the
lethargic dream-pop of Numb, culminating with the
abstract psychedelic 19-minute collage of Reversed Resurgence.
The five-song EP Disposition (Mental Healing, 2017) continued to
straddle the border of those genres with the
instrumental industrial vignette Conjure, the
oneiric chant of Supply Chain and the gloomy elegy
The album Age Of Truth (Third Coming, 2019) delivered a more mature
manifestation of doom and gloom.
Songs imbued with cold mechanical beats like Sullen and Imminent bridge industrial and gothic music,
and Call of Signals achieves perhaps the best balance of
robotic rhythm, funereal electronica and ghostly litany;
while the ghostly Perception,
the symphonic Fall of Arms
and the hymn-like Age of Truth
flirt with dark punk of the 1980s
and the gothic wave of the 1990s
Love Is Colder Than Death).
But the album belongs to the 2010s, to the age of the convoluted digital beat
and of glitch noise, the key elements embodied in closer The Ripple.
The all-instrumental EP The Search for a Fallen Field (Cold Moon, 2020)
continued Kulp's ritual of doom and gloom. Another dose of
muffled industrial beats propel
the sinister trance of Crossing Of Malice,
the whirling threnody The Mantle.
The massive shroud of drones Past Present Future creates one of Lunacy's most intense and oppressive pieces.
