Devillock - These Graves CD
DEEP TAPE FOG
DEVILLOCK: It's all in stop motion. It's all real. Up, out from under all places molded and GUNKED. Slithering spool tapes sliding like thin brown snakes under, amongst, and finally overtop and around. They overtake the crumbling corpsed-up organ grinder. He, with his grin full of rot and fingers of stank, is ever so pleased to allow the decayed magnetics to engulf his skeletal frame, it is how his power is attained (maintained). Only when wrapped tightly and over his entire torso and head (a tape mummy!) will he begin to play. Quietly at first, as if from a distance - but he is there, RIGHT THERE GODDAMIT - and then the groan and the moaning howl and the static insects all begin to draw near, an orchestra of loneliness. Can you still feel your legs? As your head is slowly filled with ants, you are posed a question: "What do you make?" he is asking. "What do you make... of THESE GRAVES?"
DEVILLOCK is Justin Chris Meyers on organ, tapes, and electronics. Justin also runs the record and tape label Tone Filth and has other additional musical projects including Panther Skull. Matthew St. Germain (Freedom From record label) plays bass on the first track of These Graves. Mastered by Pete Swanson (D Yellow Swans).
"Noise as it's supposed to be: menacing, not by the harshness of it's sound, but by the content of what its sound has to offer." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
