As it is known, the music of DEATHSTENCH is an esoteric, sensory echo of the great inner processes that we are experience in this life. Our latest audial ritual is no exception. As part of a tetradic series heralding the four blood moon eclipses, Blood On Black Hilt is the first in a series of four devoted to this rare celestial event. Tonight as the moon rises on the pacific coast, we will release this sonic offering in honor of the blood moon eclipse. (6:09 PM PST) Our ritual captures the intensity of this astronomical occurrence, starting as a slow Death Industrial dirge that erupts into a Black Metal crescendo of tumultuous hellish uproar.
This ritual will also be released later this year as part of a tape compilation split release between Whispering Eye and Cory Rowell’s (Demonologist) label Skullheadfuck.
This comp will feature unreleased tracks from Steel Hook Prostheses, Sewer Goddess, Demonologists, Gnawed, Vomit Arsonist, Flesh Coffin, Aderlating, Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, En Nihil, Dargar.. amongst others in this black field.
The new Communion of Thieves/Dendritic Arbor 7” is now available from Unholy Anarchy. The CoT side features Cassy’s art and crushing tracks from El Paso’s finest
"Nobody ever looks at me and thinks instinctively that I must be genderqueer, or that my preferred pronouns are neutral. And they never will, no matter how much effort I put into androgenizing my body, my voice, my wardrobe, or my personality. It’s impossible for me to be read as the correct gender. When I’m making a first impression on anybody, I am male or I am female.
The closest I get is being read as male, because it is the only societally provided alternative to being female, the square one of my efforts to ‘transition’ – though really, nothing is transitioning or changing about my gender or my identity. What I am trying to change is other people’s perception of it. But there simply is no androgynous ideal for people to perceive, no stereotypical concept that my body can ever conform to that would make people read me correctly.
Sometimes invisibility is the worst thing in the world. But sometimes it feels like liberation, like having a card hidden up my sleeve. Sometimes it feels like I can slip away with a secret too big for the unimaginative rigidity of the genders that have always felt like two doors slammed securely shut in front of me.”
