linekraft creates a stunning and surprising twist of ultra minimal and cinematic japanese 80’s metal-man machine music with superb and memorable programmed sequences and barrel and iron bar percussion. dealing with the controversial tokyo war crimes tribunals as the artist reflects (‘a turning point of humans trying to control history, life and death and fork in the road industrialized cold war world -or- human animal kingdom.’).
epic and contemplative compositions with the strange and down trodden vibe of kurosawa blended with the tetsuo soundtrack mangled with the violence of metal junk hell that the artist has centered his actions around. a truly standout release of industrial chaos.

There may or may not be something sinister in that fog, but you don’t want to stick around to find out. Bought the vinyl so I summon the fog demons through spe showhornwithteeth

Hard to say why this is so cool in less than 500 characters, but I can say this is making me interested to get into Prurient’s deeper discog! ༺𝔇𝔯𝔢𝔞𝔡𝔣𝔲𝔩𝔰༻
