The Plague- Naraka LP

Now here’s something for all you deathrock/post-punk kids. Up on the slab is the lone LP from NY’s very own The Plague, self-released in 1987. With tracks titles such as “Vampyre” and “Suicide Queen,” you can expect some witchy female vocals, thrashy guitar riffs, and other such gothic sounds, which should be right at home for fans of the genre.

    Always wanted to hear this one. Fritz didn't think much of it but now I can have my own opinion. It's not bad but nothing earth-shattering as well.
    Don't know if it's your own rip Frankie but there's a nasty skip in the beginning of 'Empress'. Just want you to know.

    Thanks Frankie. Actually I'm glad you're one of the few bloggers who rip their own records themselves.

    I have not bothered to dig this out in ages. Listening again with fresh ears a few years later…The opening tracks set me on the wrong path to disliking the release as usual, but I'm finding tracks 3, 4, 5 a bit more tolerable. 6 would be OK, but the flute is irksome, and 7 is not bad.

    As part of the NYC scene, it is great to have kicking around. Thanks Frankie.
