SHOCK FRONTIER - Mancuerda Confessions

Format: CD

Note: promising debut album of a new cold electro drone / apocalyptic industrial duo from the U.S. (one member is also a part of PSYCHOMANTEUM) => inspired by a cruel torture-technic of the Spanish Inquisition, very intense technical and 'clinical' atmospheres of a decayed culture are aroused, using piercing walls of drones, spoken word passages, machine like sounds...

More Info

"Founded some time during 2010, Shock Frontier is the brainchild of Psychomanteums Robert Kozletski. Born from an increasing interest in harsher industrial sounds, and aided by long time friend Kyle Carney (Defiantly Fading), Mancuerda Confessions is an expertly composed and finely honed collection of shape shifting, nightmarish emissions and radioactive tonalities, drawing inspiration from some of the early death industrial pioneers, but adding an unique, densely layered and atmospheric style. This is a soundtrack to a world that ends not in a cataclysmic, fiery fashion, but one that slowly decays and rots into oblivion, where swathes of ghostly textures, samples, and disembodied noises morph into murky ambient realms, and caustic frequency reverberations pierce through a bleak, post-apocalyptic haze. After 19 years in existence, its arguable that a definitive Malignant sound exists, but if it does, Shock Frontier has managed to come awfully close to capturing it with Mancuerda Confessions. A must for fans of Megaptera, Steel Hook Prostheses, Soldnergeist, and the early CMI sound. In 6 panel eco-wallet, designed by Brian Vdp, and mastered by John Stillings/Steel Hook Audio.
Tracklisting: Paroxysm, Angels Upon Iron Horses, Blood Eagle Zealot, The Confessional, Controlled Atmosphere Killing (feat. Staalkracht ), Understanding the Extent Of Our Disintegration, Decrepitude Approaching, Mancuerda, This Is Paradise." [label info]
