Worms of Corrosion

WoC cover

“The course of infection is often divided into three phases: migratory, acute and chronic. The migratory phase occurs when cercariae penetrate and migrate through the skin. This is often asymptomatic, but in sensitized patients, it may cause transient dermatitis (‘swimmers itch’), and occasionally pulmonary lesions and pneumonitis. The acute phase (sometimes called Katayama fever) is coincident with first egg release and is characterized by allergic responses (serum sickness due to overwhelming immune complex formation), resulting in pyrexia, fatigue, aches, lymphadenopathy, gastrointestinal discomfort and eosinophilia. The chronic phase occurs in response to the cumulative deposition of fluke eggs in tissues and the host reactions that develop against them.”

Dead Dreams – Halo Of Shattered Teeth

Dead Dreams – Halo Of Shattered Teeth c39 – [VR-004] / [antpk.05]

“Now he became aware of an insidious, seeping, cooling-off which at some earlier and unremembered time had begun to explore him – investigating him as well as the world around him. It reminded him of their final minutes on Luna. The chill debased the surfaces of objects; it warped, expanded, showed itself as bulb-like swelling that sighed audibly and popped. Into the manifold open wounds the cold drifted, all the way down into the heart of things, the core which made them live. What he saw now seemed to be a desert of ice from which stark boulders jutted. A wind spewed across the plain which reality had become; the wind congealed into deeper ice, and the boulders disappeared for the most part. And darkness presented itself off the edges of his vision; he caught only a meager glimpse.” PKD

the recycled dead, bones and sinew re-purposed for new horror
pregnant murk, birthing inky black fingers to collect our buried shame
soot-covered industrial tones, dark ambient swells, looping ambient noise
maggots feed on dead dreams…

Walter Khan – From Nothing To Nothing

from nothing cover

Walter Khan – From Nothing To Nothing c56 – [VR-006]

born from nothing, going nowhere
in the ditch where they found you
on the slab where nothing grows
at the bottom where you belong
isolation urge triggered by contempt
annihilation of the self
your return to nothing
your failed escape from nothing
fifty minutes of fluid agony, sore throat, austere electronics
surgical electric pulses
impotent internal struggle

$8 postage paid in the US. wholesale available as well. contact perfectblue69 [at] hotmail [dot] com

out next: Dead Dreams – Halo Of Shattered Teeth c39 [VR-004], co-released with Antipatik Records

Concrete Mascara – Delusion Rituals

When only pieces remain from a life of trauma, no dedication to the ego is too great. When the aftertaste of shame and guilt is unending and all-consuming, no offering of blood is sufficient. When every waking moment is a nightmare, no dosage is high enough.

Concrete Mascara is proud to announce the newest document of depravity, “Delusion Rituals”. This cassette documents two complete live performances, from United Forces of Industrial II and M.A.P.S. Fest respectively. These recordings contain live renditions of material from “Blossoms of Shame”, “History of Ruin” and “The Pursuit of Hedonism”.

There are two editions of this cassette. The “regular edition” is limited to 80 copies comes with hand-printed artwork in a sealed bag. The “art edition” is limited to 20 numbered copies and comes with two additional prints and additional packaging for the cassette, all of which was designed and executed by Si Clark.

Both the regular edition and the “art” edition are sold out from the label.

Malignant Records and Analog Worship will be handling US distribution.

For those in Europe it’s recommended to order directly from Black Psychosis

This is a joint release between Black Psychosis and Vanity Recordings.
