Diamanda Galás – ‘The Divine Punishment’ CD

$20.97

The first album in her ‘Masque of the Red Death’ trilogy, ‘The Divine Punishment’ is one of the most jarring works of art produced in response to the AIDS epidemic, and a milestone in Diamanda Galás’s artistry and activism. Galás uses her famous voice both as an orational instrument and as well as a physical representation of AIDS and those it afflicts.

The album features the panphonic dirge work of Galás, accompanied by analogue synthesizers and piano played by Diamanda Galás with additional synthesizer work by Dave Hunt. The texts are primarily taken from the Old Testament, contrasting the hectoring lawmakers of Leviticus with the desperate appeals of the Lamentations and Book of Psalms (Psalm 22, 59, and 88). In doing so, she indicts those who use religion to instigate the witch hunts that inevitably accompany real and perceived plagues.
