For everyones interest, the much revered Malignant Records have recently unleashed the furious picture-disc 12¨ split between DEATHSTENCH and Trepaneringsritualen – whose presence haven’t gone unnoticed. A mythological nordic connection, an esoteric nihilism, the wings of death-industrial are spread into the realms of ritual death-industrial and ambient – but also entrench into the occult. Trepaneringsritualen is the alias which Thomas Ekelund puts out his excellent, and original ritual ambient and death-industrial on. From old norse to his first release “Ritualer, Blot och Botgöring” released by Harsh Head Rituals, to his latest compilation “The Totality Of Death” released in two different versions by silken tofu and Malignant Records. Earlier versions of this release was not on label in 2011, came into Beläten on 2013 – and then on the aforementioned labels. Not to mention the countless releases on other labels, in different formats, Thomas Ekelund has shaped Trepaneringsritualen to what it is today. Always with exquisite physical packages which harken to the purpose of his alter-ego. Not to mention that he’s been releasing material under the guise of Nullvoid since early 2000’s, on his earliest net-label for experimental releases – Fukk God Let’s Create.

To the abstractness of his maniacal ego-tripped project Teeth, with releases such as “Sick Sick Sick” on When Skies Are Gray, and “So Sick Of The Reflection In The Mirror” on iDEAL Recordings. I could go on forever, but I want to nail the hammer to the head. He’s been involved with two labels, which he’s been the sole proprietor of; Fukk God Let’s Create and the successor Beläten. His name has also been written by the name of Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words, and his more recent collaborative efforts through the nickname Th. Tot, in the form of remixes and assistance to Soma Sema and Sutekh Hexen. Now, he’s got a track on the new 12¨ split-release picture-disc out on Malignant Records. I told you that I would be giving you a surprise, and here comes the last one. The track from the DEATHSTENCH/Trepaneringsritualen-split that I will be premiering thanks to Thomas himself, is titled “Åkallan Mímir“. It’s a 17-minute long mammoth that hasn’t been out more then as an excerpt of 7 minutes at most, so now you get to enjoy the ghastly performance of Thomas Ekelund himself under his moniker Trepaneringsritualen – exclusively on Invisible Guy for your dissatisfaction. I’d like to thank Jason from Malignant Records as well, for giving me the “go” for this last surprise, too. So plunge yourself into this egregious apocalyptic landscape and fall from grace, stream the track itself in its entirety exclusively down below. Buy the physical edition over here.

Exclusive Premiere: The DEATHSTENCH side of the Deathstench/Trepaneringsritualen split!

As people whom are interested may have noted, the much revered Malignant Records have recently unleashed the furious picture-disc 12¨ split between DEATHSTENCH and Trepaneringsritualen – whose presence haven’t gone unnoticed. The total American Armageddon of the death-industrial and dark ambient, which John Paul Whetzel and Darea Plantin have been in charge of releasing under the name of DEATHSTENCH, has been widely appraised, and so it should’ve. From their first ever split-release with Demonologists on Black Goat Records, to their first album where they’ve been solely represented by themselves, “Massed In Black Shadow” – they’re a force to be reckoned with, despite their presence being dated back to 2011. John Paul is probably most known for his work in the group Welter In Thy Blood, so he is by no means a novice. Darea Plantin isn’t one either, being John Paul’s sole collaborator under the same name. Not to mention the countless other groups and monikers they’ve attached themselves to.

The reason to why I’m not bringing up Trepaneringsritualens origins, is because this post is not really about his work. This post is about the split-side on the picture-disc they’ve been featured on together, but this time it’s all up to DEATHSTENCH to prove themselves. Or maybe not, because it’s me – the Invisible Guy – who’s proven himself to be faithful enough to get the honor to premiere the whole A-side of this picture-disc. Yes, it features them, and you might be surprised as to what is lurking in the shadows nearby. Anyway, I got the honor to premiere the two tracks “Damnum Mitanum” and “Temples of Dust (ft. Alan Dubin)” off the first side of this picture-disc. I’m really thankful and I hope you enjoy streaming these two menacing sound-waves, that should be called beastly and horrifying – but I’ll leave it for you to decide yourself. I’d also like to give a huge thank you to Jason of Malignant Records, for making this possible. You might also want to embrace yourself for something else, but more about that in the future to come (if there is one). Buy the release here.
