LIMITED EDITION 500 ONLY BLACK VINYL LP
B1 Acid Animal (14:31)
It's getting hard to breathe, man. Visions are blurry. But the sound is razorsharp and clear. The Skull Defekts were for this recording Henrik Rylander on no-input mixing desk and feedback units and Joachim Nordwall on Drone Machine and effects. Cover design by infamous artist Fredrik Söderberg.
About The Artist:
Quickly they teamed up with legend Jean-Louis Huhta who’s been a key character in the Swedish underground music scene since the mid 80’s, and the quartet was complete when Daniel Fagerström joined after Eric Olofsson left the band after the recording of Blood Spirits & Drums Are Singing (Conspiracy Records). They have collaborated with DAMO SUZUKI, WOLF EYES, CM VON HAUSSWOLFF and LASSE MARHAUG. Inspired by bands like Section 25, Lungfish, PiL, 23 Skiddoo, Arthur Russell, Cabaret Voltaire, A Certain Ratio, Brain Bombs, dub, noise, funk, techno, and tribal ritual drumming – The Skull Defekts are kings of their own sound.
More killer stuff from the Riot Season label, this time coming to us from Sweden, and more specifically from blackened drone/noise outfit The Skull Defekts. Headed up by feedback manipulator Henrik Rylander and Ideal records bossman Joachim Nordwall you know you can expect some seriously heavy noise, but little could prepare you for the purist drone assault you end up with on this earth-trembling waxen disc. Think Sunn o))), think early Earth, think all the copyists and then think again, The Skull Defekts' vision is one step closer to Oren Ambarchi or even further into the realm of Line/12k based experimental minimalism, it's just replete with a grimacing blackness that betrays its metal roots. Amazing, long-form drone music and sure to bring a frown to the face of any self-respecting fanboy. Recommended.
