On this recording Slaughter-Fetus are Bast (aka Vanessa Gates) and Vargrwulf (aka Joseph Gates). Given the choice of alter egos, this should signal that you are about to go head first into a wall of noise.
C44 released on Violent Revolution International in 2010.
Lovely lovely filth from Reptilian Sexual Predator released as a C42 on Human Ignorance in 2010.
I've been on the mailing list of Dave Phillips for ages. This morning, the latest missive was waiting for me and it contained a link to this. I immediately thought "what is there not to love?". A great band name, a great album title and a cover that riffs on Swans' "Public Castration Is A Good Idea" double LP.
Then I heard the music ... lysergic and hauntingly twisted anti-club hymns that delight and disturb at the same time. It's truly stunning and is easily the best thing that I have heard this year.
PIWS are Dave Phillips and Nathalie Dreier. Next year, this will be released on vinyl by Cruel Bones and on tape by Black Horizons so keep an eye out for those! However, yesterday, dp also put this up on bandcamp as a "name your price" download so you can go and get it now.
I definitely recommend that you do!
Homesick subterranean drone from Bill Kouligas released as a 3" CDr on George Proctor's Turgid Animal in 2006.
Glistening noise drone released as a CDr on the ever tasty Chocolate Monk in 2008.
Time for a bit of respite from this wall of din. The ever unpredictable Family Battle Snake deliver 2 tracks of moody drones, excellent for late night contemplation of this wretched hellscape we call contemporary reality.
A CDr released on Meatus in 2007.
More drawn out and spaced out improvised noise from Darren Wyngarde and Phil Todd released as a CDr on Darren's Voltagestress*r in 2005.
More Filthy Turd Navigations. Off the cuff spontaneous carnage recorded just for us!
3" CDr released on the mighty Phil Todd's Memoirs Of An Aesthete in 2005.
What happens when the guy from Cosmonauts Hail Satan and Mutant Turd collaborates with the guy from Ashtray Navigations? There will be feedback. Ignore the guy with the machine gun, some really obtuse phasing and flangers make an appearance about halfway through. Lysergic, indeed.
A CDr released on Voltagestress*r in 2004.
Apparently "Reptilian Sexual Predator is an American Power Electronics group". As far as I am aware, it's Joseph and Vanessa Gates (aka Peiiste etc). Whatever the truth of it (and don't forget, we live in a post-truth world so nothing really matters anymore) "Power Electronics" doesn't even come close. This swings from the truly sinister through beat heavy Smell & Quim territory to The Normal on a bad acid trip to a Teutonic P'Orridge finally making good dance music. No, don't run away! It's brilliant!
Get ready to channel your inner demons...
Double C60 released on Human Ignorance in 2012.

Crucifix Eye / Wet Dream Asphyxiation
Sandblasting 3" CDr released on SSIP PISS in 2012.
How long it has been since I plastered some noise on these pages! Time to begin anew with some forgotten releases and random obscurities. This one is a split release between Karst aka George Proctor aka Mutant Ape (interested yet?) and Wapstan aka Martin Sasseville aka Grand Nord. The first part is a terrific hurricane of distortion, perhaps a little too granular to be truly HNW but whatever. The second is a much more menacing affair with tonal feedback swells.
A CDr released on Bris Cul in 2008.
Back To Work!!
Split CDr from Sebastien Dessauvage and Zach Guttowsky released on Richard Ramirez's Deadline Recordings in 2012.
