Premiär: Æmɨt teaser, spelning på Under Bron den 9/3

aemit

Under hemlighetsfullhetens fana, nåja, åtminstone i ljudväg – har Æmɨt skapats – sprungen ur eller åtminstone inspirerade av uråldrig Egyptisk mytologi (läs: Ammit), och med fanbärarna Jonas Fredriksson (ALVAR), Erik Söderberg (Kinder aus Asbest) och Jimmy Svensson (Yabibo Hazurfa/Slusk), så blir deras gemensamma insats monumental på enbart tre minuter. Det de levererar är motståndskraftig industriell techno med fokus på en trollbindande slags atmosfärisk industriell musik, där mystiska syntslingor drabbar samman med rungande bastrummor – som blir en hetlevrad men återhållsam kombination. Det måste påpekas att det förmodligen är såhär det skulle låta när dessa män låter sina alter ego formas till ett – på pricken.

Musiken har en trollbindande rytm och en säregen karaktär. Ljudlandskapet har en röd tråd man kan hänga med i och den är väldigt dansvänlig. Estetiken är mörk som den borde vara, vilket ger en sammanhängande känsla i sig då det även påminner en om att detta gemensamma projekt drar i flera trådar samtidigt – eftersom att man lyckas vara både musikaliskt och estetiskt tilltalande – detta hade varit något som hade kunnat släppas på Beläten om den etiketten fortfarande hade varit i bruk. Rent produktionsmässigt är det ingenting som fallerar heller, alla små nyanser som bidrar till musikens helhet kan skönjas. Från minsta underliggande slaginstrument till knastret och bruset som understödjer det atmosfäriska och brutalt undersköna.

På torsdag i nästa vecka intar de scenen på Under Bron i Stockholm (Skanstull, gratis entré) (ALVAR presenterar) med sin första livespelning någonsin, tillsammans med en utvald skara av artister och DJ’s. Mellan 17:00 och 03:00 så kan man även se Celldöd och Dissociō Modus Trāns live – medan de som DJ:ar kommer att vara Mattias Anger (Complete Control Productions, Kollaps Records) och Daniel Jonasson (Covenant, S.A.W.).

Man kan hittills bara lyssna till ett smakprov av vad som komma skall, men det som ni kommer att få höra kommer att sätta sig i hjärnbarken omgående – vilket lindrar ens begär för fullständiga låtar, någorlunda. Lyssna här nedanför via Soundcloud.

Exclusive Teasers: Steel Hook Prostheses – Rodent Ulcer (CDr)

1898246_244786715693843_1753100254_n

Since their amazing epic of 2013; “The Empirics Guild“, Steel Hook Prostheses are coming back, stronger then ever. Symptomatic for their high-quality dark ambient, power electronics and noise. Their forthcoming release will be put out by 412Recordings. The “SHP”-logo and the prosthetic arm underneath it was designed by Cody Drasser, the man who might mainly be recognized for his contributions for the eminent web-zine Heathen Harvest.

The steel hook is clinging back to the harshly laden corrosive atmospheres, as their maniacal devotion reaches its peak. These acolytes of the sullen have made a sacrifice, once again. Offering up their slowly developing enigmatic sound, into both the long and outdrawn peripheral of every emoticon that is a shade less positive, and a tad more negative – yet ultimately blown out of proportions to serve as a cringing reminder of them being astray for a while. Metallic, incandescent, a totality of their channeled selves. One thing must be said, and that is their total passive-aggressiveness gets overloaded into the domains of a rough-cut diamond, that will serve as a static assault. The sublimity is here in abundance.

Those who serve Steel Hook Prostheses are going to get their full dosage rightfully so, before the release is out on the market. Digitally, we’ll force-feed you with everything you need to get your latest fix. They’re a lot more complex then a drug, and they’re for those whose heart is as molten; as their pieces of sonic decadence is. Those who should be stricken with fear is those whom are faint of heart. Now, in 2014, they will gain their rightful place once again. With the release “Rodent Ulcer“, which will hit you indiscriminately through their terrorizing landscape of sound, is due to be released in April. In the format of an extremely limited run of 100 CDr copies. Half of these copies will reside in the UK with 412Recordings for European listeners to buy, and the other half will be made available from Steel Hook Prostheses’ two members John Stillings and Lerry Kerr for the American audience, on Bandcamp in due time.

With one of the longer tracks they’ve created, namely the title-track of this release “Rodent Ulcer“, they grind your senses down into pitch-black blindness. Severing the normal routine of your autonomous system, making your irregular heartbeats bounce into near-death experiences. What’s more interesting is the sheer power of the atmospheres that are cast into this 16-minute maddening piece of music. Every step of the way is carefully monitored by yours truly, John Stillings and Larry Kerr. Piercing vocals, clandestine tools of their use produce waves of decrepit folds to lure you into. Insanity is a mild word to use for this absolute force that is plucking away at you. Claustrophobia steeped into both a miniscule sound-scape, but also a grandiose one. It’s strangely attracting, in a seductive way. Hypnotizing you. The other is a track called “Lice“, which is almost bordering to the territory of noise, as the static sound alters into rhythms of two, one which displays an outdrawn characteristic, the other tearing apart the first. A menacingly introduction to sonic decay. Both tracks can be streamed exclusively from Invisible Guy down below, before release. Press play.
