Industrial giants Lords of Acid returned to New York City’s Gramercy Theatre on March 12th to continue to support their latest effort, Pretty in Kink. Speaking of Kink, the lineup featured all kinds of luscious acts such as Orgy, The Genitorturers, Little Miss Nasty, Gabriel And the Apocalypse and Xris SMack. The evening had a little bit of everything ranging from burlesque, playful torture, and danceable beats, which made it a fun night of creative freedom and expression.

Little Miss Nasty

While we, unfortunately, missed the industrial rockers Gabriel And the Apocalypse set, we were in for a surprise when the first act for us was a burlesque show. Little Miss Nasty had a twenty-minute performance that consisted of a collection of hard rock and metal classics while putting on a scandalous performance as it looked like Brooklyn’s Lucky 13’s went to us. Despite the surprise, Little Miss Nasty warmed up the stage as everyone was ready for one of the “sexiest” industrial metal acts around, The Genitorturers.

The Genitorturers

Tampa, Florida’s industrial metallers, The Genitorturers, maintained a provocative set as this night wasn’t an evening about censorship. They playfully brought all taboo and controversial concepts to the stage with special guests and characters ranging from sex, drugs, to rock ‘n’ roll. Songs included “Revolution,” “Cum Junkie,” “Razor Cuts,” “Devil In A Bottle,” “One Who Feeds,” “Velvet Dreams,” “House of Shame,” “Lecher Bitch,” “120 Days,” and “Sin City.”

Orgy

While remaining on the industrial side, the evening changed as it was time for Orgy to take the stage. Aside from the group’s 2015 EP Talk Sick and talks on a new LP Entropy, the group hasn’t released a full-length album since their third studio effort with 2004’s Punk Statik Paranoia. Regardless, due to popular demand by their fans, Jay Gordon and co have continued to tour since their return in 2010. Gordon’s energized performance brought back a few different eras in one as we reminisced on the early 2000s, 90s as well as reminded us that Orgy isn’t going anywhere by hearing a few new songs. However, one of the most heartfelt moments was the surprise Prodigy cover of “Smack My Bitch Up.” While it wasn’t the greatest performance, Gordon mentioned they decided to add it to their set last minute as a tribute to the late Keith Flint who recently took his own life. Following the tribute, the group went into their most recognizable songs “Stitches” followed by the New Order cover, “Blue Monday.” Gordon walked into the crowd during the final song as he handed the microphone out to fans. Songs included: “Army To Your Party,” “Dissention,” “G Face,” “Talk Sick,” “Suck It,” “Suckerface,” “Come Back,” “Smack My Bitch Up,” “Stitches,” “Blue Monday.”

Little Miss Nasty

Little Miss Nasty surprised us once again during their second burlesque performance, which turned out to be even nastier. These girls were talented as the choreography remained in sync while some moves made a few want to run to the gym to discover a better ab workout routine. Their set ended with an original song by one of the girls as they once again made sure the stage was warm before Lords of Acid.

Lords of Acid

Lords of Acid has gone through an extensive amount of lineup changes over the last thirty-one years. However, it’s always been Praga Khan’s baby. While severe changes such as this don’t work for all bands, it somehow fits perfectly for Lords of Acid. Each new member has given the group a new method of creative exploration as we’ve seen on their latest effort, Pretty in Kink.

This night was no different as all eyes were on Marieke Bresseleers. Marieke is a perfect and natural fit as she went into fan-favorite Lust and Voodoo-U classics. While there were a few hiccups that night, her overall vocal range was on point as she continued to sing songs throughout the band’s entire catalog comfortably. Meanwhile, her constant movements made her look as though she’s been with the band for years. The group, of course, led a set of drugs, sex, BDSM, and a tantalizing delivery. However, it was an evening filled with women empowerment as Marieke asked all females to join her onstage during “The Pussy Song.” Songs included: “Sex Bomb,” “Scrood Bi U,” “Break Me,” “Sex Cam Girl,” “Out Comes the Evil,” “(A Treatise on the Practical Methods Whereby One Can) Worship the Lords,” “You Belong to Me,” “Rough Sex/Take Control,” “Rubber Doll,” “Voodoo-U,” “Pussy,” “Lover,” “My Demons Are Inside,” “The Most Wonderful Girl,” “Drink My Honey,” “I Sit On Acid,” “Let’s Get High,” and “The Crablouse.”

Overall, it was a fun evening filled with electronic beats, pleasurable theatrics that made a Tuesday night feel more like Friday. The lineup was more focused on industrial seduction as it literally was a Pretty In Kink night.
