Blaqk Audio - Bright Black Heaven

I figured I might as well start a thread for this on its own, there are at least a handful of us out there interested .


Anyways, the new album is finally out. It's still available to stream here:

BUZZNET Exclusive: Stream BLAQK AUDIO's New Album 'BRIGHT BLACK HEAVEN' on We've Got You Covered's Blog

Or you can purchase it here:

Blaqk Audio | Bright Black Heaven Presale

With some really reasonably priced bundles available.


Lead single:

BLAQK AUDIO - Faith Healer (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO) - YouTube

And ooooollllllddddd lead single:

Blaqk Audio - "Ill Lit Ships" [HQ] - YouTube

In case you weren't aware, Blaqk Audio is a sorta industrial dance/synthy duo comprised of Jade and Davey from AFI. So, yeah, AFI side project that kind of sounds super-inspired by industrial Depeche Mode.


And from there last album, two songs I love:

Blaqk Audio - Cities of Night - YouTube

Blaqk Audio - Bitter for Sweet - YouTube

I got it for $9.99 at Best Buy. They had a decent number of copies too, so it hopefully shouldn't be too tough to find in stores.

Have only listened to the first 5 songs so far, but I think it's safe to say I already like it quite a bit more than the first one.

I've just been listening to the stream. I'd say this is a keeper. I already have 5 or 6 albums that I haven't even listened to yet, but what's one more.

I enjoyed it a lot (still haven't heard it on headphones or in one sitting), but it seemed to be lacking some of the standouts of the last album, but was overall cohesive and did its job well.

I disgust myself sometimes. I'm only just now getting around to hearing this album for a second time. Really loving the first three tracks so far. I remember them too, that's always good news.

Great, great album. Like I said before, it's lacking the stand-out tracks of the first album, but the quality is high throughout. Higher than the first, I do believe.

This is definitely on my list to listen to again before the year ends.

I need to listen again for track titles, but it's safe to say these guys are in my book for great side projects.

Sheesh, I've listened to this one quite a bit actually. Or did when it first came out at least. Had I not slacked off from the gym throughout the entire month of October, I'd probably have heard it even more.

I started listening to this again on my way into work this morning. Still feels like I'm listening to an unreleased Erasure album from the late 80's.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

If Erasure ever made an album this dark, I would fear for all of the happiness in the world.

I expected to hate this, but it's kind of awesome.

I like it considerably more than the first one. Not really sure why, but I do.
