Even Spilled Seed Crawls Toward The Womb is immense and devastating, as TEN THOUSAND MILES OF ARTERIES crushes the spirit with an assault of ultra-dark synth tones and battering, reverberating rhythms. This is the perfect soundtrack to an existential crisis. With five new tracks, the project’s founder — known only as NLC — delivers a dense half-hour of caustic, industrialized devastation. The lyrics to the album were written during an excursion from Northern Idaho to Alaska during the Summer of 2013. It loosely tells the story of the last person on earth, a woman, making a journey to find her death and coming to terms with being the final bearer of our collective human history.
No Clean Singing’s synopsis of Even Spilled Seed Crawls Toward The Womb, “The vibe certainly revels in visions of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, bloodstorms in harsh deserts, and so on. Drones and noise certainly play an important role in the sonic architecture of the release, but despite the fact that the lyrics are indecipherable, the voice provides the narrative thrust on this last journey of humanity’s existence.”
Heathen Harvest reports on TTMOA as a whole, “This is an artist who seems made for Annihilvs, with a mix of blind rage and suffocating atmospherics that calls to mind early Swans and IRM, as well as Theologian and Gnaw Their Tongues.”
TEN THOUSAND MILES OF ARTERIES will appear live in New York in late October 2016, as part of the Autumn Dirges Harvest Festival, joining the likes of Brut, Gnaw Their Tongues, Theologian, Kintaan, Lament Cityscape, Spettro Family, Swollen Organs, The Vomit Arsonist, Compactor and Whorid. Additional live details will be released shortly.
