• gnaw their tongues Collected Atrocities 2005-2008 (double CD, £11.25)

    label: Crucial Blast Records

    Sought-after early material and rarities. For nearly a decade, Dutch avant-black / doom entity Gnaw Their Tongues—named after a particularly evocative passage from the Book of Revelation—has infected the underground with a uniquely disturbing brand of chaotic heaviness. Fusing malevolent, rumbling doom and rabid, noise-damaged aggression with blasts of fearsome orchestral power and industrial pandemonium, and draping these lurching, hellish dirges in an oppressive atmosphere thick with horror and despair, the intensely nightmarish music of Gnaw Their Tongues defies easy categorisation. It’s the sole work of architect and madman Mories, also known for his work in Cloak of Altering, Pyriphlegethon, De Magia Veterum, Aderlating, Mors Sonat, Pompidou, Dimlit Hate Cellar and others. In 2007, before the release of the band’s Crucial Blast debut, An Epiphanic Vomiting of Blood, Gnaw Their Tongues crawled into the black metal / industrial underground via a number of ultra-limited Eps which quickly went out of print, and are now sought after by fans of the band’s abject, blackened horror. Collected Atrocities 2005- 2008 is a double-disc anthology that gathers together essential, out-of-print early recordings from the first three years of the project’s existence, compiling the Preferring Human Skin Over Animal Fur, Horse Drawn Hearse and For All Slaves... A Song of False Hope EPs, the material from the Static Hymnal compilation, and other rarities from the bowels of the Gnaw Their Tongues archives. Track Listing Disc One: 1. For All Slaves...
