As Supernatural Cat Records readies the pummeling new GoRgo LP by the prolific Italian instrumental trio called MoRkObOt for release this week, the entire album comes writing forth through an early stream at Terrorizer Magazine.
MoRkObOt‘s fifth full-length release, GoRgO 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. The flooring percussive thunder of Lon is topped with the dueling, winding intensity of bassists Lin and Lan with unrelenting intensity through the album’s entire thirty-eight-minute duration. Recorded by Giulio Ragno Favero (Zu, Teatro Degli Orrori, OvO, One Dimensional Man) at Lignum Studio in Padova, Italy, GoRgO took only three days to capture, and was cut live in a minimal amount of takes, testament to the trio’s impressive musical coherence and unity Tthe 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.
Terrorizer is now streaming MoRkObOt’s GoRgO in its entirety at THIS LOCATION.
GoRgO sees release on CD, LP, and digital formats this Friday, September 16th via Supernatural Cat, the label owned and operated by members of Ufomammut and Malleus Rock Art Lab. Preorders are available HERE.
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. 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.
