Emerging electro act My Love Kills is getting ready to release its second album, Imitatio Dei, in April. It’s a massive double album featuring 19 new songs. You can get a taste of it below.
The album’s title is a Latin phrase that means “Imitation of God,” a theological concept describing man’s obligation to imitate god. The album cover features religious imagery, and several tracks name-check religious subjects like Babylon and purgatory. Should be interesting.
My Love Kills is sort of an industrial supergroup comprised of V.V. Arkames from Ad Inferna and Fredrik Sigeback from Erotic Elk. Their various styles come together nicely to create a sound that falls somewhere between Skinny Puppy-style aggressive electro and present-day futurepop. Their debut album, Glitch, was released last year and contained one of my favorite songs of the year, “Love Is Suffering.”
Imitatio Dei will be out digitally on April 21, 2020. Physical copies of the double CD ship out around April 14. You can pre-order it here.
Here is the complete tracklisting:
- Silent Scream
- Kingdom of Lost Souls
- The new Babylon
- La Voisin
- Black Order Rises
- No Remorse
- Embrace the Curse
- Burn Fire Burn!
- Mad Addiction
- The Final Girl
- Dead Man Walking
