Death Waltz 76 need two things: more studio time to develop vocals and a great big hug. Their Bandcamp banner reads “Stupid Ugly Music for Stupid Ugly People” and I couldn’t disagree more — this music is neither ugly nor stupid. I get the self-deprecating goth-punk thing, but I think y’all are overstating your case. C’mon, guys, believe in yourselves! And about the vocals — it’s not that we’re not into them, it’s that we would be way more into them if there were more of them. Like, stacks on stacks on stacks of vocals. Think about the epic possibilities.
