The Italian drum and dual-bassist trio known as MoRkObOt reveals another brand new track from their fifth full-length, GoRgo, which is to be released this September through Supernatural Cat, the label founded by members of Ufomammut and Malleus Rock Art Lab. The track sees its debut through an early premiere at New Noise Magazine.
“Gorokta” reveals a new era in writing for MoRkObOt, one that revolves around constructing more ambitious constructions driven by simpler forms and tighter structures. As the band remarks, “This song starts with a simple heavy riff and goes on through all of its different sections following the key of mutation. Time compressions and metric modulations alter the rhythmical structure while melodies interchange roles and continuously shift the listener’s perception. Sometimes changes happen in subtle ways but most of the time mutations fall abruptly into one another interlocking different alien sceneries. Crashing, fizzling, devastating.”

GoRgO was recorded from November 2015 to January 2016 by Giulio Ragno Favero (Zu, Teatro Degli Orrori, OvO, One Dimensional Man) at Lignum Studio in Padova, Italy. It ushers in a new era in writing for the band; one that revolves around constructing more ambitious structures driven by simpler forms and tighter structures. GoRgO took only three days to record, and was cut live in a minimal amount of takes, testament to the trio’s impressive musical coherence and unity, and the mixing process took another eight days, with no further editing being required. As with all Supernatural Cat outputs the cover for MoRkObOt’s GoRgo was designed courtesy of Malleus – a collective renowned for their intricate and surrealist art-noveau-esque visual art.

For twelve years now, the three messengers of MoRkObOt have been elaborating on their discography with a series of increasingly perplexing and infectious records. GoRgO is the brand new album of low-end noise rock origami from Lin (bass), Lan (bass), and Lon (drums). MoRkObOt’s dual-bass methodology creates a debauched entanglement of corkscrew rhythms that shake off the notion of sterile technicality, rather, theirs is a fleshed out monster that stomps to a different octave. Honing in on the minutiae of their interlocking slides, slams and slippery beats, the band creates a unique and lively psychedelia akin to being in an accelerating whirlpool of their malicious creation. Heaviness is achieved in the most refracted of manners, letting both bass pincers extend in melodic directions around the relentless, booming drumming, then snapping shut with mechanized indifference, hitting hard and fast over and over. The gurgling fountains of noise Lin and Lan conjure over the duration of GoRgo place them in the highest echelons of noise rock innovation, while Lon’s percussion is both the unstoppable force and the unmovable object.
