Coral Cross (Jorge Elbrecht of Violens’ metal band) released a 7″ on Mexican Summer, playing Pioneer Works
by Wyatt Marshall
Coral Cross released a video for its song “With a Lancet,” a track that makes up the A-side of Coral Cross’s debut 7″. You can watch it below. We reviewed the EP over at Invisible Oranges, and we liked it–it’s a refreshing take on metal that draws from melody-driven black metal, post-punk, shoegaze and pairs it with dreamy vocals. The 7″ is out now on Mexican Summer.
Coral Cross is the work of Jorge Elbrecht, better known for his output with Lansing-Dreiden and Violens. It’s unclear if Coral Cross will ever play live with any regularity, but one show is on the books for August 19 at Pioneer Works. The show will accompany a sculptural installation by Max Hooper Schneider, and a DJ set from Jimi Hey will follow.
