Necrochasm is the forthcoming sonic nightmare from Los Angeles-based black death industrial necromancers THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND.
A true manifestation of fear, apprehension, and suffocating paranoia, Necrochasm offers up seven disturbing tracks of claustrophobic cacophony. Featuring contributions from Samantha Viola of T.O.M.B., Dreadlords, and Skulsyr, the disharmonic masterwork was captured at Black Blood Studios in Long Beach, California and Hollydale Asylum, in Downey, California. Necrochasm will be unleashed on October 28th, 2016 on 12″ vinyl through a partnership with Husk and Prison Tatt Records.and digitally via THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND‘s official Bandcamp page.
In advance of its release, today Cvlt Nation is offering fourth hymn, “She Who Cannot Be Saved” for communal torment. Offers THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND brain child Joe Truck, “‘She Who Cannot Be Saved’ is a suffocating monolith of blackened death industrial… an occult ridden, aural deathscape recorded in an abandoned mental institution in Downey, California. We had some strange occurrences during and after the recording including vocalizations that appeared after we went to mix the track.”
Get traumatized by the diseased sounds of “She Who Cannot Be Saved,” now playing at Cvlt Nation, RIGHT HERE.
Forged in 2000, THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND (aka T.B.S.U.), whose split with T.O.M.B. last year made substantial waves within the black metal/noise communities, fuses harsh noise, industrial, ambient, and black metal elements to create their deafeningly sinister, occult-ridden magick. With a dedicated and expanding fan base and endorsements from the like of Watain’s Erik Danielsson and Trepaneringsritualen’s Thomas Martin Ekelund among many others, T.B.S.U. has generated an extensive catalog of releases including splits with such genre heavyweights as Richard Ramirez/Werewolf Jerusalem, The Vomit Arsonist, The Haters, Demonologists, Actuary, and Endometrium Cuntplow.
T.B.S.U. is the creation of world-renowned tattoo artist/musician, Joe Truck, inker to many of black metal and industrial music royalty. Truck, who’s been a staple within the NYC deathrock/punk and goth scenes since 1979, has performed in bands with members of Swans, Einsturzende Neubauten, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Snakefinger, and Samhain. Truck is also the founding member and guitarist in New York City-based 1982 goth act Scarecrow.
“THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND has my full support for being a malevolent anomaly in US and more specifically Californian subculture, upholding the traditions of the old harsh noise scene. ” – Erik Danielsson, Watain
