Shock Frontier – “Mancuerda Confessions” – [Malignant Records]
Mancuerda is a form of torture where a tight cord was wrapped around the victims arm. The executioner would then throw his entire weight backwards, or the pressure would be exerted by a lever, and the cord would cut through the skin and muscle, right to the bone. This is a project from Robert Kozletski, along with Carney, formed in 2010. Dark industrial electronics, with haunting spacial tonalities. Glistening blades and rumbling lows. Ambiently dense atmospheric textures. Drones of the murky black night. Subtle torturous vibes. Ghostly voices, and spoken samples.
