with I Ya Toyah, All Good Things
Now free from the shackles of mainstream or commercial expectations, one of the staples of mid ‘90s alternative music makes a triumphant return in 2020 as Stabbing Westward releases their first helping of new material in 18 years – the D ead and Gone EP – an ironic title as the band is neither dead nor gone. On the contrary, with three new tracks and two remixes, this musical offering showcases a revitalized and reinvigorated spirit that finds the band performing at the same heights of intensity that made Stabbing Westward a success two-plus decades ago.
I Ya Toyah landed here to spread the disease of music and infect the human race. She is a one woman army that blends the chaos and balance with familiar vibe of industrial electronica sound. Her music is a fusion of smooth, cutting edge vocals, surreal guitars, hypnotizing beats and multiple electronic synth elements arising into dark arrangements that, combined with storytelling lyrics, respond to the paranoia of everyday reality.
