33rpm black vinyl 12" Limited edition of 300.
Wilds is the second full length from Philadelphia based post-industrial group Hot Guts. What started off as a raw and gritty Post-punk band in 2007 eventually evolved into a more refined foray into territories that cross between the electronic and organic, as well as the harsh and beautiful.
Currently a duo, Wes Russell's signature rich baritone and unorthodox guitar stylings (at times more reminiscent of construction machinery than a guitar) are still very present while counterpart Shari Wallin (also of Void Vision) provides the synths and drum machines as well as backing vocals.
Within this web of minimal electronics there are hints of EBM, Neofolk, Tribal Industrial but there is an element of experimentalism that has always been present in Hot Guts that keeps things sounding fresh, and strangely contemporary throughout the recordings.
