Theme - Sacred Blood Warning
From 2020, this is the 6th album by the group originally founded by Stuart Carter and Richard Johnson in 2000. And still characterized by a largely brutal and uncompromising approach.
In their own words: “Partly designed as a reflection on modern times and all the inherent confusion as unrest appears to reign heavier than ever in an almost illusory realm, the music that constitutes this album explores notions of a self without moorings violently torn in several directions.
Whilst it might seem deliberately dystopian for the most part, the rich layers of often organic sound reveal a gamut of other delphic shades besides the confusion. There are moments when one can snatch another gulp of air before succumbing to the undertow itself initially inspired by all from sci-fi soundtracks to the confrontational assaults of Suicide and the ravaged voice manipulations of Robert Ashley.”
