First Utterance – Comus (1971)

First Utterance - Comus (1971)

Comus sound like the product of a scene whose key players were born, lived, and died over a thousand years ago, with songs from the Dark Ages that were somehow displaced and put into the modern age. The album breaks music conventions left and right and relishes in its complete madness, with songs that passionately describe in detail subjects such as rape (Diana), torture (Drip Drip), and a man’s haunting journey to his own hanging (The Bite). No one knew what to make of it during its time, but this macabre album’s cult following sees it for the masterpiece it truly is.
