After the last feature one of the guys from Eye Gouging Mayhem, Vomitoma, Reclusa, Black Mold Phallanx got in touch with me and hooked me up with a few other essential projects, like this one, and some others that he’d released sometime ago. I’m always looking for really solid, depraved, and unique power electronics and sociopathic industrial and Lucifer’s Foreskin fits the bill.
Although a very short EP, 10 minutes in length, there’s actually a lot of meat to sink your teeth into. “Blasphemous Decomposure” is a very faint layer of vaporous and bleak discontent and foggy distorted synth with a slight screech and whir like a trains wheels along the steel rusted tracks, over a monotonous and very groovy drum machine. It sounds like some stripped down filed recordings of an abandoned factory in the rain modified using a pole filter and some other classic analog effects. Short or not, this 2.5 minute opening track is a huge indicator of a seriously necessary project underway…if this doesn’t turn into something ongoing I’m going to be tempted to hunt the main man (Ray Rivera*) and sodomize him with a red hot steaming curling iron. Okay, that’s a ridiculous statement to make, but hopefully it’ll help make the case for why LF is ESSENTIAL and truly BRILLIANT.
It also doesn’t hurt that the almost five-minute closer of “The Black Priest of Circumcision” brings in a bit of Navicon Torture Technologies sadistic murderous power electronics versus dark serial killer ambient and Benedictine Monk chants (?). This track is seriously awesome!!!!! It’s very basic but haunting and unusual, somewhat reminding me of acts like Alio Die, and yet coming from such intense audio pioneers that came up with acts like Fellatrix Morgue, Sewer Cunt, Eye Gouging Mayhem, Nunriders of Black Doom,etc. If you’re looking for some serious substance and atmosphere, Lucifer’s Foreskin, this stuff really does defy all boundaries and expectations!!!!!!
