Dude from Fuck Buttons doing his own thing on the side, dropping shit on Sacred Bones for a while now. This is a very expensive sounding record, that was still probably recorded in someones basement or spare bedroom. This record is like a fucking ASMR for people who can have PTSD and need some larger sonic textures to feel anything. Don’t be surprised if this record comes up again this year on my list, actually it might not, I’m considering making a list of shit I hate for 2017, because there’s a whole lot less of that right now, and I don’t have to give a fuck about missing anybodies shit, because no one wants to be at the bottom or the top of that list.
Here’s some fancy shit he says about the record, I don’t know what it means, but it’s a fucking good album:
“As humans, we are aware of our inner beast and should therefore be able to control it. We understand our hard-wired primal urges and why they exist in an evolutional sense. We understand the relationship between mind and body. Highly evolved and intelligent, we should be able to recognize these genetic hangovers and control them as a means to act positively and move forward as a compassionate species. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Recent global events have proven this. The human race is consuming itself.
World Eater, the new album by Benjamin John Power’s Blanck Massproject, is a reaction to this. There is an underlying violence and anger throughout the record, even though some of these tracks are the closest Power has ever come to writing, in his words, “actual love songs.”
This one is badass, just incase they delete the bandcamp someday in the future:
