La Fin Absolute Du Monde do not think much of subtlety. If the Oakland duo’s endtime-harkening name doesn’t make that evident enough, then its new single "Immaculate Consumption" should help further clarify things. The premiere of the punny track off the band’s debut full-length Clarity Amongst The Rubble, comes at a time when most Americans are exposed to (or willfully partake in) an excess of commercial sentiment, and the track “Immaculate Consumption” takes that sentiment directly out of the corporate mouth. Forgoing metaphor or anarchist lyrics, “Immaculate Consumption” sets probing, syrupy vocals that demand material fulfillment against a backdrop of dissonant, feedback-riddled grooves.

The band’s moniker isn’t the only thing French about them; though La Fin Absolute Du Monde is an industrial act at its core, the way the guitars’ fluid abrasion interacts with the off-kilter drums approximates the hip-hop influenced sound that certain European black metal bands have gained notoriety for over the last decade.

In line with those jarring, in-your-face sonic elements, the band’s Jason Myles had this to say about the track:

“This was a song we wanted to make a statement with. Sonically I wanted the intro of the song to hit the listeners ears like a car wreck. That was the reason for abrupt feedback filled intro. The lyrical content of the song has to with the society based on mass consumption. We consume ourselves into an almost zombie like existence. Cyndy's vocals, the sexy tone, it's the sound of the system lulling you into comatose state to keep you on buying more things you don't need to impress people you don't necessarily like or even respect for that matter.”
