DEATHROES Inhuman Comedy LP


gerritt wittmer and ryan jencks are deathroes.

the project began around 2005, its origin story steeped in black metal tapes, booze, noise and so on.
as a performative unit, deathroes ‘doubled forces,' combining wittmer's and jenck's shared fondness
for fog-machine saturation and high powered strobe onslaughts with a full-spectrum transmission of
aggressive, confrontational, immersive noise. in manifesting chaos and raw power through light and
sound, deathroes intend to provoke a collapse of the psyche: to isolate each member of the audience
from everybody else present, to offer an existentially bleak form of transcendence through submission,
eradication, drowning, the eradication of hope.

the recordings for "inhuman comedy" date back to 2008, with multiple live recordings edited and
sifted from lengthy tours across europe and the american southwest. These recordings had gone
missing only to be re-discovered in 2018, when gerritt and jencks repurposed the material with
additional treatments in the studio. a flesh-scalding hiss rips apart the opening of the first side-long
chapter that slips into textural grindings of metal and dry-lung inhalations. long arcs of sub-bass
frequencies add considerable menace that carries over onto the second side of the LP. there,
deathroes deals out cascading waves of red-lined distortion, distantly bellowed utterances, and
sustained sawtooth tone generation that occasionally peers through the churning maelstrom.

a necessary chapter in the ongoing story of california noise.
