Bestial Mouths
"I'm dreaming you," the Voice whispers in the dark.

This is the sound of a star exploding. Its heart bursts outward in fire and energy. This is the sound of creation, birthed naked-raw and shrieking.

This is the song of a world split wide by bestial mouths.

These words gather in about you like a shroud, encasing you in cold certainty.

Vision and voice, ecstasy and agony - a breaking crescendo of majesty painted in embracing limbs and whip-sharp fractals of hair. The aura of these aurals speaks a language hewn from the language of vigilant systems caught forever in a whirl of suffering. These are not cries of victims, however, but of strength. The faces you see moving about in flashes of white light enrapture the mind with the words they spit upon reality's stage. They stalk like sentries, mighty in their agony. The echoes of their edicts rebound across the psyche long after; not nightmares, but the jagged stain of bitter memory cloaked in a caress. There are other things said upon their stage, other worlds born and obscured in an eclipse of horrific intent - but we will not speak of them here. These words are to be heard by you only.

The scents - old soil, the sweat and stink of animal hunger - disappear.

"Wait until it opens," the Voice says. "It will amaze you."

The instruments of these Bestial Mouths are cacophonous: hammering percussion and industrialized synthetics wrapped in the lyrics of euphoric dread. The shapes they form - crumbling mythologies, voided personalities and the clenched-fist orgasmic crush of lost desires-are as immediate as they are intimate, glimpses into the world that these three inhabit. Don't look too closely, however... it's easy to get lost in the night.

There-now you've done it. The kaleidoscopic frenzy has vanished. The shining beacon is lost, now, a fading idea as ephemeral as the drying imprint of a kiss. What you think of as a room is suddenly, terrifyingly vast. No stars shine here, and even the idea of ideas is elusive. The only absolute, in this great is uncertainty. Only the thought of you remains.

There it hangs upon the oneiric idea of Self, and as sense begins to uncoil itself in your mind, you perceive the grinding, shapes of rows of white slabs approaching.

The ceremral chaos of Bestial Mouths is an invitation to dream darkly, a monstrous glamour to dazzle the eyes of the spirit - their texts a prayer to unlocking secrets of the shattered soul.

What salvation you might find there is purely coincidental.

"We dream each other," the Voice whispers, and in a great new darkness you drink this knowledge in discarnate wonder as the teeth close around you.
Brooklyn's Statiqbloom is the dark hallucinogenic brainchild of Fade Kainer (BATILLUS/THEOLOGIAN/INSWARM/JARBOE). Drawing from the grittiness of early industrial and EBM, Statiqbloom combines hard dance beats and haunting electronics with disorienting vocals to create a pulsing raw vision of music for today.

Kainer also provides vocals and electronic soundscapes for Tombs , industrial doom metal band Batillus, and, previously, industrial metal duo Inswarm. In addition, Kainer is a contributing member of blackened synth band Theologian, has played synths and percussion on tour for Jarboe, and has remixed a variety of bands and other artists.

In 2013 Statiqbloom self-released the "Mask Vision Poison" EP, followed by a split record with Zex Model released on Desire Records in 2014.
From the frozen wastes of New England comes Snowbeasts – aka Raab Codec, Component Recordings label head honcho with contributing vocals from Elizabeth Virosa of Pattern Behavior – with a sound like dire warnings from the future or a strange memory from the past. Snowbeasts music is haunting, charting soundscapes vague and unfamiliar while hinting at buried dreams frozen in time. Drawing on a variety of sources, Snowbeasts excels at creating enigmatic portraits of unknown regions and forgotten worlds. Anything is fair game and nothing is forbidden. Forget chopped and screwed: Snowbeasts songs are chipped, sawn and shattered apart into new sonic shapes. Single instruments are torn from their normal uses, modified and rebuilt into orchestras of sonic depth. Found sounds undergo transformation until their origins are forever obscured, their new forms revealing alien timbres. Vocal textures supplied by Ms. Virosa morph from choral chants into haunting drones and eerie sound forms. Textures are warped in the bowels of digital forges to become newly born, hammered from raw ones and zeros into weapons of sound. Modular and analog synthesis reveal the sweet meaty texture of tones before metamorphosing into warped forms barely reminiscent of their former selves.
