Now just over a week from being issued to the public is the new Feelings About Gender Guilt Over Time full-length from filth/power electronics act, SWOLLEN ORGANS, the solo project of one Jimmy Aly of mandatory NYC grinders, The Communion.
Feelings About Gender Guilt Over Time takes a long, hard, sweaty look at the tenuous relationship between gender roles. Fraught with uncomfortable quiet moments and overbearing aggression, this release is a disturbing examination of sexuality, through the lens of misanthropy. As the new SWOLLEN ORGANS record is prepped for release through Annihilvs Power Electronix, Cvlt Nation has been sanctioned a leak of the album’s writhing “Grieving Every Night, Drugging Every Residual Symptom,” warning pedestrians of its, “Pure NOISE, Pure FILTH, Pure SONIC HATE, Pure AUDIO CONFRONTATION – you are about to experience SWOLLEN ORGANS and bathe yourself in his disgust!”
Experience “Grieving Every Night, Drugging Every Residual Symptom” via Cvlt Nation now at THIS LOCATION.
Annihilvs Power Electronix will release SWOLLEN ORGANS‘ Feelings About Gender Guilt Over Time on Friday, May 13th on digipak CDR and digital formats. The artwork was rejected by the pressing plant for its pornographic content, so the album comes with an outer insert that presents the layout as originally intended, also including postcards, a sticker, and a mini poster.
Preorders can be placed (and the censored artwork viewed) with the streaming of the lead track “Do You Know Entertainment?” right HERE.
SWOLLEN ORGANS is currently booking shows to take place throughout the year, including a set at Queens, NYC-based Summer Scum 5 on July 9th and 10th, featuring fifty-two acts performing sets under fifteen-minutes in length. SWOLLEN ORGANS will also perform at Autumn Dirges Harvest Festival, also in Queens, running from October 28th through 31st and featuring Gnaw Their Tongues, Theologian, Compactor, Lament Cityscape, Whorid, and more. November 5th will see the act transplanting to Texas to take place in the San Antonio Noise Fest.

Jimmy Aly, who serves multiple functions as guitarist, bassist, and noise guy in NYC grind/sludge band The Communion, made his first appearance as SWOLLEN ORGANS in 2009, with digital document A Single Purpose. The project otherwise remained a private fetish until 2012, when the first release Digging Through The Trash, was made available to the public via his own label, Nom de Plume Records. Operating within the often unrecognizable boundaries between power electronics, death industrial, and harsh noise, SWOLLEN ORGANS is a study of personal jealousy, sexual obsession, violence, and the victim and the victimizer. It is the selfish manifestation of unfulfilled lust and constant hatred that is kept buried to prolong an unassuming existence in society, and ultimately a project of worship in every sense of the word.
