NO DEADS ‘Τάρταρος’ cassette
Foreign Object Damage – FOD01
from Cassette Gods:
“Austin’s No Deads are milking the darkness for sustenance. That’s what I’m getting out of “Τάρταρος” anyway, which is Greek for Tartarus, the mythological “deep abyss that is used as a dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked and as the prison for the Titans.” Thanks Wikipedia! So you’re telling me you can find Thanos there? “Endgame” was way off.
Anyway, the noise trio grinds its gears against the afterlife, layering sheets of tone and effects on each other, backmasking rhythm, feeding back through crummy amps – you know, everything a proper noise band does. With almost ritualistic intent, No Deads aims at resurrecting the nefarious, and absolutely succeeds – spirits will rise, spirits will go forth. And of course, there’s nothing good that can come out of this, nothing wholesome or even mildly helpful – it’s all a heaving mass of unholy destruction. You’ll get your marching orders. You’ll be on your way to Tartarus – or worse.“ -Ryan/Cassette Gods
