See the Gloom and Glow of TRIAL “The Plague” (Scott Walker cover)

TRIAL has a way of pulling me under their tidal waves of noise and drowning me in industrial acid! With deliciously sonic suffocation, TRIAL covers Scott Walker’s 1967 song, “The Plague,” a b-side from a 7″ single, and they’ve made a strange and wonderful video to accompany it that we’re happy to be sharing with you today. You can also download the track on their Bandcamp. I need this kind of immersive music today to drown out the negative ego thoughts that want to creep in when I’m feeling down. Trial come in an wash them away and leave me cleansed of their lies. So right now, enjoy Trial’s cover of “The Plague,” and they leave us with the wise words of PLAY AT MAXIMUM VOLUME.

Thanks to Dan Conway for elements of the video.
