AUDIO: Haunter – “Halloween EP III: Abomination”
Experimental indie rockers Haunter are out with their third annual Halloween record, this one being the longest of which. Made up of previously unfinished tracks the band had piled up, the end result is slow and abrasive yet powerfully dreary. It culminates into a shadowy exhibition akin to the existential dread many have felt this year. There’s lyrics of invisibility, basement parties, and emptiness. The instrumental final track “Painted in Red” wraps up the bleak slowcore of the record with haunting moans. Happy Halloween y’all – Haunter is elegantly spooky as always.
