“part Bebe Buell, and Nancy Spungen, with a generous portion Bruce Dickinson in aesthetic—altogether a grotesque amalgam of all the sexual energy from punk, goth, and heavy metal.”
– 
Post-Punk“Patriarchy is the Snuff-Metal Band We Deserve, Guided By the Spirit of David Bowie and Dionysus”
– self-titled“LA-based metal band Patriarchy, featuring multifaceted artists Actually Huizenga and Andrew Means, strikes again subverting our age-old societal boundaries and basking in the dark and weird.” 
– Flaunt

“…a scary fever dream, in the best way possible.”
– V Magazine

“The techno-pop backing track plays against the visuals and lyrics to create, much like all of her art, a wholly disconcerting experience – in the best way possible.”
– DAZED

“…a thunderous, transgressive track that underscores everything to like about this up-and-coming group.”
– The 405

“…it’s a goth project in the best way possible—the band has a death metal logo, blood always seems to be flung around, and the lyrics are not for the faint of heart.”
– L’Officiel

“…more concerned with darkness and raw emotion than catering to the hyper-PC culture that reigns today…and it’s refreshing.”
– Office Magazine

LA snuff metal outfit, Patriarchy, has arrived with the release of their debut record, Asking For It. Along with the release they shared a new single and accompanying video, titled “He Took It Out”. The video has two versions, one which is unrated and another that’s a bit more PG. Stream the new videos and album up top, which is now out everywhere via DERO Arcade.

Patriarchy is a stunning and equally surprising collaboration between the “Predator Romantic” herself Actually (aka Actually Huizenga) – LA-Based multidisciplinary artist – and Andrew Means (3Teeth multi-instrumentalist), revealing a new focus toward the darker, heavier side of synth-punk/new-wave & industrial music.Their fresh work explores themes of sex, power, subversion & death, with what appears to be an intense interest in Ancient Greek Mythology & 80’s slasher films, a heavy dose of Mulholland Drive, and a sound that is equal parts ABBA and NIN.
