Next week, The Netherlands’ harsh black/experimental noise soloist GNAW THEIR TONGUES will unleash the act’s acid new full-length, Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent. Over a week before its proper public unveiling, The Quietus has volunteered their portal to host a stream of the album’s title track.
GNAW THEIR TONGUES is the work of Maurice “Mories” De Jong, also of Aderlating, Cloak Of Altering, De Magia Veterum, among others. Just over a year since the outfit’s Abyss Of Longing Throats full-length was released, and in the wake of the project’s collaboration with Dragged Into Sunlight, Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent shows GNAW THEIR TONGUES at the top of its game. The music grabs you by the throat and sucks all the air out of the room. Although it leaves little more than an anaerobe environment, the music itself feels likes it has been breathing and organically growing into this true beast of an album. Fully performed and recorded at the Bejaarde II, Drachten, by Mories who also mixed and mastered the album, Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent also features guest vocals on “Our Mouths Ridden With Worms” by Hekte Zaren.
Longtime supporters of the GTT catalog, The Quietus today offers “Hymn For The Broken, Swollen And Silent” for public dissemination, offering of the tune, “The title track is a somewhat minimal cut though no doubt maintains the overarching dread of De Jong’s work that will no doubt please fans of GNAW THEIR TONGUES.”
