Sick Man Getting Sick
Sun Worship/Unru - Split LP
Import. Released by Sick Man Getting Sick, description from the label: SUN WORSHIP "Whether in the frozen Scandinavian forests or in the sprawling urbanity of Neukšlln, desolation will be desolation. Berlin outfit SUN WORSHIP channels this desolation into an icy spear of harsh beauty. The result is a kind of black metal without pretense or theatrics, a sonic landscape both stripped and dense, perceived through post-punk schooled eyes and reduced to its bare essentials. The music of SUN WORSHIP is both a distant formal aesthetic homage to the era that first allowed for a spiritual experience of the genre as well a timeless catharsis through vehemence, momentum and volume." UNRU "Anxiety, impotence, displacement, escapism, dissociation, catharsis. Oscillating between the poles of mundane sensation, wallowing in vice or shame. To bear the burden of (in)significance. UNRU can be read as "Unruh", which is both the German word for "disconcertment" as well as a clock's heart. A metaphor for being unable to break out of the boundaries of our anxieties, addictions and compulsions, the Unruh is unrelenting going on and on without speeding up or slowing down, unable to abandon its habits."
