  • Cassette + Digital Album

    Perhaps the lowest-quality audio of any commercial audio format. Still, this is how your alcoholic uncle first listened to Van Halen's "Diver Down," in his Chevy Nova on his way to varsity baseball practice. He probably could've played Division A in college, if he'd gone, except he got Christina pregnant senior year and went to work for his father's tile company right after graduation. He realizes that Trump is rough around the edges and probably should stick to the teleprompter more often, but he ultimately believes he cares about America and knows what's best for the economy. Limited edition of 100.

about

Their work began in 2018, as rough demo recordings were shaped and hewn by these clandestine shamans and cosmonauts on a sub-rosa mission to merge the celestial and the terrestrial. The result of their effort was an album of existential heaviness that pitted synthesis against nature: Digital beats, down-tuned riffs, harsh keyboards, and warm tube amps. Their genre-bending and -blending dredges the uncanny valley to cull a sound both strange and familiar.

For fans of: Yob, Tubeway Army, Pallbearer, Opeth, Depeche Mode, Neurosis, Drab Majesty

“Atmosphere aplenty accompanied by a vast cosmic ethereal nature. Huge riffs and an undeniable ‘presence’ you could well lose yourself within if given the appropriate accouterments. In short, doom, but doused in Bowie-esque progressive elements and dark synth. An outstanding combination which needs to be heard to be appreciated.” - Cult Metal Flix

“Transcendent in its heaviness.” - LA Weekly
