PAGAN – The Holy Communion party

Melbourne-based blackened rock’n’roll band PAGAN have today unleashed their new single ‘Death Before Disco’ together with the announcement of their single launch (a party aptly titled the Holy Communion) going down in Melbourne next month. Premiered on triple j’s Home & Hosed last night ‘Death Before Disco’ is the first single in 12 months from our resident occultists, and the first cut from their to-be-announced debut album due out this year on newly inked label EVP Recordings.

“we saw the lights dissolve like the end of an Italian Disco…”

Listening to ‘Death Before Disco’ with the volume up is non-negotiable. Vocalist Nikki Brumen’s goosebump-inducing vocals brim with anger and tightly packed emotion, bringing to life the stacked guitar parts of Xavier Santilli, trembling bass and backing vocals of Dan Bonnici and absolute thumping drums of Matt Marasco – who makes it sound possible to be in four places at once. It’s intricate, it’s deafening and it’s large. Pagan have come together to write a song that is played with such unstoppable ferocity that they not only sound like a band on a mission but a band that’s a full-blown war.
