VIOLENT MAGIC ORCHESTRA «Catastrophic Anonymous» LP out this winter on Throatruiner Records Posted 12 Sep 2016
Very excited to announce the release of VIOLENT MAGIC ORCHESTRA's debut LP "Catastrophic Anonymous" this winter on Throatruiner Records, and very happy to work on one of Paul's projects. Definitely our most Hydrahead-esque release. Here's the band's music video for "Halved" (with vocals from The Body's Chip King) - preorders will be up soon.
"VIOLENT MAGIC ORCHESTRA is an unique project comprised of dark techno prodigy Paul Régimbeau (Mondkopf, Extreme Precautions, Autrenoir), Japanese experimental black metal collective Vampillia and noise master Pete Swanson (ex-Yellow Swans). Their ten-tracks debut album "Catastrophic Anonymous" features vocal contributions from Attila Csihar (Sunn o))), Mayhem) and Chip King (The Body).
VMO's overall sound is a multi-headed beast that can't be pitched in a single line. "Catastrophic Anonymous" roots are indubitably those of a harsh record, with expansive black metal guitars powered by Extreme Precautions-style glitchy textures & brain-melting drum machine work as well as Pete Swanson's noisy soundscapes. Then it also covers a wide range of genres - flirting with industrial techno, post-rock or drone - while always sounding effortlessly natural. Mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Atomsmasher) and illustrated by french artist Metastazis, "Catastrophic Anonymous" is the fruit of boundary-pushing people, and a refreshing, spectacular experience."
