ALTAR OF PLAGUES’ James Kelly Unveils New Electronic Project

James Kelly, the man behind Irish black metal outfit Altar of Plagues, has unveiled his new electronic based side project entitled WIFE. Kelly will release an EP in November through Left_Blank entitled Stoic under the WIFE moniker. A song from the EP entitled “Bodies” has already been released with an accompanying music video. “Bodies” is a trippy, atmospheric track that features layered acoustic guitar riffs and piano strums underneath a wall of tranquil ambiance, strange, reversed vocal samples and a catchy bass heavy beat. The video shows Kelly involved in a strange bodily ritual in which he covers himself in grime and eats a peach in an animalistic manner. It’s a pretty awesome song in my opinion. Check it out below.
