Spiritflesh – Spiritflesh
Unfolding the darkest of dubwise techniques sprawled across shards of post-punk, drone, doom metal and techno, Spiritflesh went six feet deep across a short-run of promo cassettes and a 12″ single, and then followed up with this super-heavyweight full-length album on NoCorner.
“Spiritflesh is the brainchild of Julian ‘DJ October’ Raymond-Smith and Boris ‘Borai’ English… The culmination of countless hours spent in an infamous Bristol basement studio full of old machines, BBC-grade reverbs, delays, phasers and little known mixing technique, Spiritflesh are now presenting their eponymous piece.
Taking in a host of sounds, the pair have truly blurred the conventions of influences and spawned a sonic that is all theirs… Phased, delayed and crashed through red-hot electronics, their sonic is at a constant boiling point, doubled in menace via evocation, constantly spewing and spitting like a skeletal, fog-riddled construct of otherwordly ambience, guttural bassline and rhythm. Dream-like, yet crushingly physical, their sound is a cerebral kind of music that touches, with great conviction, on ideas of life, death and the in-between…
This self-titled debut LP expands across eight crushing, drone-heavy juju meets techno meditations, exploring the darkest themes of the spiritual world and the open spaces in between.”
