NUNSPLOITATION / SWEDISH DEATH INDEX / COLOSTOMY BAGUETTE / WERNER HERZOG

AUSTRALIAN NOISE SPLIT OUT NOW ON INNERCITY UPRISING

The four bands on this release all come from Melbourne and all share one member, but are otherwise quite spread out across the spectrum of noise. All of this music has appeared in one or more forms before, too, and all have existed a few fathoms beneath the surface of obscurity.

Werner Herzog was a noise/synth-punk project featuring one half (the synth player and the drummer) of the current line-up of depressive rock quartet Expurgatory (though the drummer, El Bolsa, was still over a year away from joining that band when the one WH jam/recording sesh happened). They brought minimal equipment and even less complexity into the Jam Hut in Preston, and managed to extract three carvings of anger and madness for their one and only release, ‘Body Horror’. They never met for this purpose again.

Swedish Death Index is the one solo project on this release, whereby the aforementioned synth player, X (who is also the noisesmith in Religious Observance and Colostomy Baguette?, the latter of which we’ll get to later), endeavoured to summon punishing industrial doom/drone metal without the use of strings. Five tracks were made over four years, and released on four seven-inch splits and one split cassingle. Following the conclusion of the project, a self-titled compilation was released online, and now finds its way here.

Nunsploitation came about after many excited conversations about eroticism and industrial music between X, Leah (who was a spoken word performer in Expurgatory for four years), and Harriet (most well known as the sole member of world-famous power electronics project, Military Position). The debut performance occurred on Valentine’s Day 2017 at the Make It Up Club in Bar Open (Fitzroy, Victoria), and the second (held at Disco Multiverse at The Tote (Collingwood, Victoria) later that year) is what led to the EP ‘She kept fast by the maidens’, which is what you will find on this release. Their sound is drenched in feedback, forced speech, and deathlike distorted drums and synth. It is music to castrate the clergy to.

Finally, there is Colostomy Baguette?, whose now sold-out eponymous EP is what constitutes their contribution to this hour of abrasion. They started back in 2009 when X and his close high school friend Wayniac made plans to start a grindcore band with no training and too much overdrive. Things rapidly slowed down to a doomy pace, which is where most of this EP found its foothold, though later on their sound referred more to the kind of harsh noise wall of Merzbow and Wolf Eyes. In 2015 they joined forces with sludge metal trio She Beast to form the harsh doom metal group Religious Observance, a band that now takes up the bulk of their attention and sits somewhere between Space Bong and Whitehorse. The CB? tracks on this split are probably the strongest connection between this band and RO, due to their strong and direct uses of drone-doom and rough grind.
