Lingua Ignota’s “All Bitches Die”: album review

Intense trauma-processing emotionally brutal Lingua Ignota’s fearless second album, 2017’s “All Bitches Die” incorporates all of her medieval Hieronymous Boschean hellish and purgatorial punishing divinity language and imagery; all of her shrieking throat-slicing metal-roaring; all of her penitential heaven-gazing gregorian cathedral hymnals; all the fury and rage and pain that she brings to all her work. There’s really no-one like her, though like I keep saying, shades of Diamanda Galas and Chelsea Wolfe come to mind.
Based on a book about victim violence called “When Battered Women Kill,” the five song 43 minute album is mesmerizing in its intensity, truly paralyzing, beauty on the edge of terror, the unbridled pain of human suffering transmuted in the creative fire into something timeless and haunting.
