DAFT ALLIANCE PRESENTS
Iggor Cavalera is best known as the drummer for metal legends Sepultura, a group he formed with his brother Max in 1984, but throughout the years has continually ventured well beyond the bounds of metal with various experimental projects including Mixhell, Petbrick, and solo as MUDO.
Following a split release with NTSC in 2020, a Throbbing Gristle inspired venture released by Tartarus, Cavalera released The Beast Within, a modular synth odyssey featuring Aleister Crowley's glass cylinder recordings from the 1920s, as part of the Plague Hymn series released by Daft Alliance Media.
Now, video artists Nathan Berlinguette and Skye Thorstenson have teamed up to create a stunning visual accompaniment that pairs their own disturbing vision with Mudo's equally haunting and harrowing sounds.
DA218 Emperor of the North / Janky Funeral "DOOMRIDE" split
Side A / Janky Funeral buries living ears in a devastating set of fingernail scratching live-entombment-electronics
with absolutely no hope of disinterment.
Side B / Emperor of the North, aka WT Nelson of Geronimo and Bastard Noise, prepares a visceral theme
with sinister vocal condiment sparingly spread on violent analog aliment.
Digital album out now at thedaftalliance.bandcamp.com/music with option to preorder super-limited
DA219 FiFac X Dino Crisis - BARCODES
Barcodes includes 8 collaborative dirges by 2 very different artists. FiFac is a producer of aural textures extracted from ambient and concrète forms. Crystalline drone and aggressive variants of ambient and footwork music using various synthesizers, effects, and samplers. Dino Crisis, aka Mackenzie Kourie of Rhode Island's NILSERVER, is generally a one man act of hyper free noise jazz with a focus on improvised percussion. Together the two have created something unique and playful in the spirit of free music.
Digital album out now with option to purchase limited edition cassette.
