The debut EP of DC-based PsyOp brings you into the fractured mind of one Daniel K, a twisted prophet of rage who speaks of shifting dreamscapes and the unnameable terrors of the night. Howl from the Void fuses nihilist anthems of decadence and decay ('Bang My Head Against the Wall,' 'The World Owes Me Something'), hardcore bruisers ('Before the Gates'), and jagged postpunk ('Copy and Paste') to create a breathless display of alienation, paranoia, and outrage towards the dystopian techno-horror that is our world today. Henry and John of grind powerhouse No Mas, along with co-writer Seth Abelson and producer Dag'Nabbit, conjure a vivid backdrop to K's scouring vocals and piercing lyrics. PsyOp draws from the righteous fury of classic hardcore and the nihilism of 70's punk to create something fiercely its own.
