Decibel Magazine has volunteered their Deciblog for the ultimately demoralizing task of delivering Philadelphia-based self-harm electronics outfit WHORID‘s horrifying Bloated Pig Carcass In A Shallow Wake album through an exclusive stream just days ahead of its Valentine’s Day release through Annihilvs Power Electronix.
The solo project of Daniel Suffering – also a core contributing member of Theologian — WHORID‘s definitive full-length Bloated Pig Carcass In A Shallow Wake is an ever-deepening descent into the cruel mind of the rejected. Unrelenting in its darkness, seething with unbridled contempt, and stands panting at the threshold of your worst imaginings, the record shows how the WHORID sound has become more mature, integrating more rhythmic elements and structure. Conceptually, the album deals with an obsession turned to reality, then demise; themes of stalking, BDSM, social anxiety, substance abuse, and eventually murder… a scenario where no one wins. With nine tracks totaling just under one hour of auditory torment, the album was produced by Suffering at Havs Ov Whorid, and mastered by John Stillings of Steel Hook Mastering.
