Available this July, Vanity Recordings is proud to announce reissues of the first two albums, Dirt and Rotten Sarkoma, by Japanese artist Screloma. Jun-ichi Takahashi aka Screloma is a former member of Japanese industrial group Mothra alongside Masahiko Okubo (aka Linekraft) and metal percussion unit Inorganic Congeal. However Jun-ichi's solo work as Screloma stands on its own merits and stands out with its unique sound.



Dirt [VR-012] - originally released on CD in 2004 by Three Plugs Records, Dirt delivers six studies of rhythm, tempo and aggression. Each track is built upon a pounding rhythmic core; some at machine gun fire pace, others stomp like ED209 trapped in tar, all are drenched in malice. Screloma's deranged vocals combine with a lattice work of screaming machines, whirring synths and balanced distortion to deliver the sonic equivalent Tetsuo: The Body Hammer for 40 minutes straight. For fans of Chu Ishikawa, Nasenbluten and Dissecting Table.



Rotten Sarkoma [VR-013] - originally released on CDr in 2008 by Steinklang Industries, Rotten Sarkoma is the patient, hulking juggernaut to the mongoloid half-cyborg kill machine that is Dirt. This reissue is from the original master that was prepared in Tokyo. While rhythm appears here and there, texture is the primary focus on Rotten Sarkoma. rusted iron, open-faced concrete, chemical burns and blisters. It's an hour of pure industrial waste. Recommended for fans of Rubber's Lover, Converter and rust.

Both tapes are professionally duplicated and limited to 100 copies. Wholesale is available. Contact perfectblue69 [at] hotmail [dot] com

Later this year Vanity Recordings and Uninvited Records will co-release the debut tape Virgin Entrails. Thirty-two minutes of skin-ripping, glass-slashing, electrifying harsh noise. And this fall Vanity Recordings will be reissuing the fourth album by Concrete Mascara, History of Ruin, which was originally released by Trapdoor Tapes in 2015.

This project is new to me, but the YT samples sound very promising.

Out today, a new tape by Virgin Entrails, "As The Snow Falls On A Black Christmas".

Dedicated to Keith Brewer and based upon our mutual love of Bob Clark's Black Christmas. This c60 is a live in-"studio" simulacrum of a set performed last year, shortly after Keith's passing. Built upon a 30 minute prepared sound collage sourced from Black Christmas, this recording is noticeably more restrained than previous offerings from Virgin Entrails. The b-side features the unaltered sound collage. The cassette is housed in a spray-painted and stamped box, prepared by hand and bound by ribbon. Limited to 25 numbered copies, one edition.

Pictures of the boxset can be seen here. https://imgur.com/a/uzoWGi2

$10 postage paid in the US, $20 postage paid outside of US. Interested parties can contact perfectblue69 [at] hotmail [dot] com . There will be very limited distribution by Freak Animal (and probably Skeleton Dust). You can save on shipping if you're interested in ordering other in stock Vanity Recordings releases.

Still available:
Concrete Mascara - History of Ruin [2020 edition] cassette - $7
Jigoku - Alcoholic Hell cassette - $5
Virgin Entrails - Virgin Entrails cassette - $7
Concrete Mascara - Bilharzia EP CD - $10
Throat - Bareback (Stripped & Remasked) 2xCD - $16

later:
[VR-016] - Concrete Mascara / Virgin Entrails - Beneath The Trapdoor 2x cassette - spring 2021
