“Immaculate Rejection” is the bludgeoning new track from bizarre death/gore metal duo BLIGHT HOUSE and their impending second album, Summer Camp Sex Party Massacre, due in early August via Nefarious Industries.
Summer Camp Sex Party Massacre was recorded and mixed by F.O. Gorey at Great Swamp, Rhode Island, mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering in New Jersey, and completed with art and layout by Andrew Grant.
The BLIGHT HOUSE crew offers, “We’re excited to help everyone prime the pump with a second single from our forthcoming album, Summer Camp Sex Party Massacre. ‘Immaculate Rejection’ is a refreshing cocktail consisting of blood, urine, semen, and a black widow. Perfect for your next massacre or just casual blaspheming.”
No Clean Singing proclaims, “’Immaculate Rejection’ kicks like a mule, with big bounding and skull-whomping grooves guaranteed to bob your head like a piston, and bursts of viciously swarming riffage tailor-made for windmilling heads. All that is addictive enough, but the weirdly warbling lead in the song might be the most unexpectedly addictive aspect of it. As you listen to that, it’s not hard to imagine the leering face of a demon flickering in your peripheral vision as you move to the compulsive momentum of everything else happening in the song. Perhaps the guttural roars and goblin shrieks that provide vocal accompaniment have something to do with such freakish visions.”

BLIGHT HOUSE formed in the swamps of Southern Rhode Island in 2014 when Frank Owen Gorey took ill with a fever in the height of the summer heat. Quarantined to a dark, clammy, moldering basement, he shredded his guitar through waves of febrile dementia, for days on end, until the fever broke. Emerging from confinement and reviewing the odious audio left behind, he called upon his colleague Frank Lloyd Blight to lend a disgusting, phlegmatic layer to the disorienting, spasmodic riffs Gorey had spewed during his subterranean convalescence. The result was BLIGHT HOUSE’s first, self-released, self-titled album of grinding death metal.
Neither of the Franks is well, and through subsequent years of unspeakable suffering they continued to bleed, blast, blister, and blaspheme through more recordings, refining their take on extreme heavy metal. Continuing BLIGHT HOUSE’s fixations on themes including horror, wrestling, the occult, and love, Summer Camp Sex Party Massacre offers ten tracks rife with earworms as bountiful as maggots on road-kill. Layers of monstrous vocals, disturbing samples, and swarming, occasionally melodic riffs make each track memorable in its own right while presenting an overall aesthetic of insanity, terror, and senseless, all-consuming rage.
