This Dismal World
(Peripheral - PR010) split LP $20.00
A concept album about the Four Noble Truths -- the central teachings of Buddhism explaining the nature of suffering -- using field recordings from a mausoleum and buddhist temples in China. Anemone Tube’s dark industrial epic conjures up a sinister, threatening atmosphere and crushing power-electronics. Dissecting Table’s monumental industrial track includes a recitation of the complete 25th Lotus Sutra, ritual drumming, diverse analogue treatments and deep growls. A threnody for today’s dejected world. Edition of 200 with insert.
