Alexander Heir is a fantastic artist that comes through the spotlight for orchestrating an array of deeply detailed but truly sinister artwork that both entices and disgusts onlookers. His style is a precursor to the love of punk rock and the shock value that art can hold, which transfers incredibly well into the overall quality of L.O.T.I.O.N. The band is essentially a lovechild of 80’s B-movie gleam with all the technology of the 21st century. As L.O.T.I.O.N. takes this center stage with World Wide W.E.B., the performances are as stricken with might as they are obtuse imagery.
Everything to create a substantial punk record is present here on World Wide W.E.B., from the rapid-fire percussion and strings that are personified to clash through-hardened steel swords. There is a hopelessness to the lyrics that dawn a nuclear winter, and finally a push to kill more than to create. With one of the midpoint tracks, “Killing A Dove” is a synth-wave build into a grainy and almost continuously burning nightmare. “As simple as it could be, there’s no chance for survival,” hits on this doomed glimpse into a pulverized and frankly mesmerizing fate covered by lyrics that almost always refrain to misery.
Released on Toxic State Records, the name fits nestled perfectly into one of the strongest releases from the New York underground. Where desolation and death roams free, L.O.T.I.O.N. is an upstanding model to experimentation with old loves.
