Rackets & Drapes: Love Letters From Hell (4/5)

Year: 2003
Label: Self Released
Genre: Dark Synth Electro Goth
TRT: 53:18

Forget what you know about this band if you're familiar with Rackets & Drapes from their first few releases, which were nothing short of Gothic Shockrock from a Christian perspective. While I personally liked this angle back in the day, I realize that was a turn-off for many.

However, their 2003 (and final?) release, Love Letters From Hell, completely ditchs this kitsch. What you get here is a really sick and dirty synth-driven electrosextronic instead. All based on sex, prostitutes and the adult film industry.
