Delayed since forever for every sort of trouble - as every proper damned release demands - the split tape between A HAPPY DEATH. and TO MANKIND was finally ready in the cruelest month.
Both projects are based in Italy and offer some kind of death industrial noise with several similarities in feelings / sounds / attitude / hatred. This is the debut effort for To Mankind [formerly CRUEL CADAVER EXQUIS, also guitar player in crust/D-beat band POLIS ÄCKEL] and new pollution from A HAPPY DEATH. [also involved with MALASTRANA, CAMPOMORTO, MALDOROR'S DOG, DEGRADO, etc.] following a few other tapes shared with SHIVER, NEGATIVESELF, AUTOCANCRENA and some collaborations. 3 tracks each, recorded and mixed between 2013 and 2014. Ultra-negatively charged filthy electronics. Amp crashes, layers of various junk and dying synths, tape saturation folding sad atmospheric landscapes of concrete discontent. Unpleasant views, constant anxiety, increasing lack of meaning. An intimate examination of the void left from emotion slowly turned into pain and detachment due to cold brutality of everyday horror. Featuring Mauro S. [SHIVER / DEPRIVATION / Diazepam tapes] providing some more despair with his extra synth in the opening track. Comes in a standard case with collage inlay + 3 extra cardboard cards. 70 black, hand-scratched C50s.
