"Killed by Roses plays like a psychological horror drama. It follows the protagonist’s descent from love to infidelity, into hatred, hysteria and self-destruction. It records the multiple failed attempts to regain control over one’s life by breaking one’s personal shackles. It shows an existence where meaning is lost to absolute degradation and a rejection of moral limits. Sonically, the production is destroyed, blown-out and heavy, mirroring the extreme, raw and demonic vocals and lyrics.
Killed by Roses is NAKED’s most personal record to date and the second act in their trilogy. It follows their last record, Total Power Exchange which featured in Aphex Twin’s recent sets and Cosey Fanni Tutti’s mixes. Total Power Exchange used the sounds of sex vomit and mutilated vocals to create a distorted and violent noise transgression, rooted in socio-political confrontation. Killed by Roses is a coiled motion into the depths of the protagonist’s psyche, spiralling into sheer madness."
