Malignant Records presents the new Perennial Disappointment by punishing New Jersey power electronics act CONCRETE MASCARA, the album now streaming in its entirety and available to the public.
Perennial Disappointment is a perfectly engineered and concise declaration of arrival that should be a revelation for those that consider the power electronics genre to be one of stagnancy and one dimensionality. The sheer violence of this recording is astounding, and it stands as one of the most unnerving and visceral releases ever under the Malignant banner.
Undergo deconstructive surgery to CONCRETE MASCARA’s Perennial Disappointment HERE.
Since 2011, CONCRETE MASCARA – comprised of Andrew Wilmer, Frank Cordry, and Jack Scanlan — has been sharpening their skills across various formats and releases, pushing the envelope of intensity and extremity as they quickly ascended the ranks of American power electronic acts. From the dystopic atmosphere of Perennial Disappointment opener, “Flesh Of This World,” and postmortem ambience of “Mouth Of Flies, Tongue Of Maggots,” to the traumatizing and unmitigated physicality of “Utopian Nightmare,” “Defined By Absence,” or “Delusion Of Sacrifice,” Perennial Disappointment is rife with urgency and tension, where caustic, distortion filled frequencies meet slashing, blown out noise, hyper-rhythmic pulsations, and venomous, dueling vocals.
