Formed in the autumn of 2016, long-time collaborators noise artist Masaaki Masao and vocalist Joy Von Spain began to create new work as TO END IT ALL, forging songs from rhythmic harsh noise, sampling, keyboards and voice. The duo’s Scourge Of Woman full-length, released last fall via Scry Recordings, draws inspiration from death industrial and black noise acts like Pig Heart Transplant, Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, Sutekh Hexen, Throbbing Gristle, as well as artists like Onielar, Diamanda Galas, and Cosey Fanni Tutti. The album features the artwork of Seattle by-way-of Bay Area visual artist Anima Nocturna (Carlos Melgoza) in collaboration with Joy Von Spain.
Captured at Stop/Start Studio in Portland, Oregon and Khaos Studio in Seattle, Washington, Scourge Of Woman is available in digital and vinyl formats at THIS LOCATION.

“TO END IT ALL‘s Scourge of Woman full-length sounds like what would happen if drone/doom purveyors Khanate were forced into a blender with noisemakers Pharmakon and Lingua Ignota and forced to conduct devilish rituals.” – Decibel
“…a challenging beast… one of the most discomforting listening experiences I’ve ever had, on par with or exceeding much of Portal or Dodecahedron’s work…” – Angry Metal Guy
“…a horrific, apocalyptic noise-scape full of the sounds of destruction, terror, and what sounds like skyscrapers being leveled.” – Treble on “Beast Filth”
“…dark, unsettling, and terrifying…” – Cvlt Nation on TO END IT ALL‘s “Lure”
“…one of the most abrasive and dissonant songs on the album…” – BrooklynVegan on “Beast Filth”
