"Crumbling and bloated slow-motion metallized horror from Chicago's Auditor and Venowl, turning in an agonized studio collaboration that sets a new standard for "doom." Venowl's hyper-distorted sonic waste marries perfectly to the Auditor's electronic terrorism, creating an unholy assemblage of sound that vomits hell out onto the earth without sacrificing a sort of ghostly aura of subconscious beauty.
There is a majesty to the two massive tracks here, something heavenly and expansive buried beneath mound after mound of rot and ugliness. Imagine Khanate on LSD locked in a room with Merzbow and you'll get a good idea of what you're dealing with here-sheer and unadulterated brutality, executed masterfully.
Altar Of Waste is psyched to bring this to light once more. Originally self-released by the artists in a single disc unmixed/unmastered edition of 15 handmade copies, Auditor and Venowl have been kind enough to give AOW a mixed/mastered and expanded version of their intense union. The second disc contains a live collaborative performance captured in Chicago last July and an unreleased punisher from Venowl. You will not emerge unscathed!
Packaged in a DVD case with an OBI strip in a limited edition of 30 hand-numbered copies."
