Kongo - Blubber - [CD]
Henrik Nordvargr Björkk (MZ. 412, Folkstorm, Toroidh, Pouppee Fabrikk etc) and Peter Nyström (Megaptera, Negru Voda) are both well known figures in the realm of dark soundscapes. They have been providing their obscure sonorities for decades now and each new release by either of the two legendary artists is an awaited treat. With their new project KONGO, Björkk and Nyström set off on a journey where they delve deep into early industrial music: using cut-up technique, processing speech samples, looping distorted melodies and making Blubber the ultimate homage to Severed Heads and Cabaret Voltaire’s works. It’s hectic, obsessive, and crazy. And it’s got that punk feel to it - a perfect soundtrack to the f**ked-up world we are living in. Ltd x 300 copies in a digipak, with amazing artwork by Kellerman Design.
