More Info

"ANNIHILVS proudly presents TURNING OF THE HEAVENS, the debut album from KAITEN, the collaborative project featuring Erik Jarl (IRM, JARL) and Lirim Cajani (INSTITUT, OPERATIV PERMANENT).
As would be expected from an alliance of these two Swedish artists, KAITEN is a foray into dark, dense, and superb harsh electronics.
Taking their name from the infamous Japanese manned torpedoes, a submarine counterpart of the Kamikaze planes of WWII, KAITEN submerges the listener in a world of claustrophobic, shuddering tension.
Distorted echoes of mayhem resonate against the hull of a steel coffin speeding toward certain destruction. Grating, shouted vocals, radio intercepts, and bombastic rhythms are crushed together to represent an inevitable fiery death and a hero's grave in the cold, crushing depths of the Pacific Ocean, all in the name of imperious glory."
