All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the Specter rises to let us into the shadow kingdom of Old Tower. We had an enchanting discussion on his process and philosophy, going from Old Tower’s beginnings to the new album “The Old King of Witches.” Build a twilight world and tear apart the fabric of reality. Let the cauldron spill over.
As we’ve discussed many Drone Records 7″s on Seven Inch Sunday, we thought it’d be a good time to cover the label’s flagship band Maeror Tri and their “Language of Flames and Sound” CD on Old Europa Cafe. Your brain waves may wash ashore on new lands, but the unfamiliar surroundings will prove rewarding. Blur the hemispheres.
In our first journey to the Netherlands, we encounter the fantastic DMDN “Agonistes 1&2” cassette on G.R.O.S.S. and fall headfirst into its grinding swirl. Sjak Van Bussell, the man that is DMDN, gave us some incredible information behind this tape. He also filled us in on other aspects of his work, including his band THU20, his label Midas Music, and his time touring with Merzbow and the Haters in 1989. Celebrate noise.
