GRIDFAILURE closes out 2022 with Perpendicular To The Living Ones. The project’s fourth title of the year serves as its first fully solo record since the Covid-lockdown-released Epicenter MMXX: Quarantine Instrumentals. Caustic dark ambient and harsh noise passages are corroded with horror-inspired keys/synth, gnarled post-industrial beats, panicked percussion, and immersive field recordings, most of the tracks replete with torrents of vocals that demoralize the listener with tales of inescapable natural disasters, viruses, incineration, and more. Simply put, this is GRIDFAILURE 101.
GRIDFAILURE’s David Brenner performed, recorded, mixed, and handled the artwork for Perpendicular To The Living Ones at The Compound in Valley Cottage, New York, after which the record was mastered by Dan Emery at Black Matter Mastering in Nashville, Tennessee (Kool Keith, Steve Von Till, Thetan).
