BRAIN ON WAR C-60
Straight from the dirt of the Rust Belt and the byproduct of a classified ground OP, Ohio's Heat Signature unleash a filthy, saturated, distorted offensive that fills both sides of tape with an onslaught of noise and harsh electronics that should satisfy anyone who truly loves noise music at it's most primal. More free-form in nature than their previous releases, Brain On War harkens back to a sound that, although I wouldn't call it nostalgic, is reminiscent of earlier acts such as EHI & Abfall. A truly American style and sound without pretense that cuts through the tape like a razor.
Packaged in a canvas utility/ammo pouch with name and title factory printed on the front, the tape is house in a 4x6 bag inside, and includes 8 pages of literature and a sticker designed by the band for this release.
Hand numbered edition of 100.
WAVE OF MUTILATION C-60
The former Austin noise scene purveyor and now Cali resident Johnathan Cash is back with another blistering literal non-stop noise assault as Sunk Cost. Two full sides of harsh and abrasive sounds, panning, velocity and controlled hesitation. All tracks run into one another in a "no brakes" like scenario. If you've known John since the BRR days, you can see the maturity in compositional style and detail that Wave of Mutilation brings, leaving his more youthful performance art/humorous bend in the past. Although I was a fan of BRR (Breakdancing Ronald Reagan), and always found his dedication to the noise scene admirable, there was something missing that I think he has found in Wave of Mutilation, building forward from his previous releases as Sunk Cost. They say age either breaks or makes a man, and in this case I believe it to be more the latter than the former.
Packaged in an artificial leather case with factory gold letter die-stamping on the front. This item has been sewn shut in production, but can be opened very delicately with a razor blade to access the cassette and the noise therein.
Numbered edition of 80.
A download code is included with purchase knowing some may not want to open the case. Unlike other cassette releases on Dada Drumming, Wave of Mutilation will also be available for streaming on all major listening platforms starting on 8/24. There will be no availability on Bandcamp.
A limited edition HEAT SIGNATURE BRAIN ON WAR shirt is available in either M/L/XL (ALL SOLD OUT) as part of a bundle deal while supplies last. There is also a limited edition SUNK COST logo hat (SOLD OUT RESTOCK COMING SOON).
