Vomit Arsonist – “an Occasion For Death” – [Malignant Records]
New release from Rhode Island’s Andrew Grant, AKA the Vomit Arsonist out on Malignant Records. Grant is quite prolific in the death industrial and power electronics scenes, with this being the 13th full length release since 2004. Dark and droned out doom, distorted vocals, filtered loops and heavy synths on an album with themes of independence from metaphysics and the overwhelming saturation of existence. “At the edge of life, everything is an occasion for death.” Heavy, intense droning noise with black metal influences and subdued power electronics, tormented words punching through the layers of pulsing, grinding synths to deliver messages of emptiness and hopelessness. Good fun for the entire family.
