The Flesh – Vehicle of Ruin

Dutch metal punks The Flesh have completed works on their new EP, aptly entitled “Vehicle of Ruin”.

With ”Vehicle of Ruin”, The Flesh expand their destructive atmosphere in and beyond new. More vicious, misanthropic and urgent than the already well-received “Dweller” recording from 2018, the new EP will deliver 20 minutes of relentless controlled psychosis. If ever there was a point in history that demanded angry, scathing, blackened music then this is it. The world of 2020 is more than ready for the blistering arrival of Dutch purveyors of doomed psychosis The Flesh.

The classic “we really gotta start this new band” talks at shows seldom lead to much, but in the case of The Flesh, members from Herder, Verwoed and Blood Diamondactually joined forces after a night of heavy drinking. Their mission was to create songs in praise of spiritual, physical and emotional erosion.

The first rehearsals started mid 2017 and the band subsequently self-recorded their first EP early 2018 with guitarist Sven Post as producer. “Dweller” was tracked live and is made up of seven songs which blend hardcore, crust and blackened metal into a fierce aural attack. Lyrically the work dwells on to the destructive drives of lust, disgust and (self)annihiliation.

The Flesh will present “Vehicle of Ruin” live on the 7th of March supporting Disfear in the Drachten, The Netherlands. Tickets

Filmmaker vinyl

Colombian producer Faunes Efe stands behind a slew of prolific albums and EP’s released under the Filmmaker project, quickly building a cult following amongst those with an affinity for dystopian electronics steeped in an alluring, seductive darkness. From earlier self- released works such as ‘Visceral’, a 10-track full length work modestly described in Efe’s own words as the “First occult-orientated soundtrack from an experimental lost film”, to the 808-shots of ‘Nocturnal’ and later with the grainy, low-fielectroof ‘Wetwork’. Each successive release proves Efe’s capacity to execute productions of magnitude across the electronic spectrum, yielding body moving music from a small arsenal of honed hardware.

Filmmaker’s material derives from an unadulterated exploration of the sonic realms, utilising multiple formats and artistic mediums; documented through a series of original cover artworks and short films created by Efe. In the space of a year since its inception, Efe began touring as a live artist under the Filmmaker project, from his home-base in Medellin, to clubs and spaces throughout the Americas and Europe. 2019 became a defining period for Efe’s musical trajectory, with the release of the acclaimed ‘The Love Market’ LP on Berlin-based Detriti Records and later landing on esteemed UK label Opal Tapes with his 6-track ‘Unregulated’ EP, followed by the 7-track dark wave masterclass ‘Noir Times’ EP on Valencia-based HC Records. In 2020 Tartarus Records has the honor of releasing Filmmakers’ full back catalog on cassette and vinyl.
