How I want industrial to sound like. Sometimes it's driving, increasing the testosterone level so much that veins on my forehead start to spell an obscene word. Always atmospheric. Feels like ash is raining from the sky. I haven't enjoyed industrial so much since Zaraza's cover versions of Laibach songs.
Favorite track: ᚲ ∴ ᚲ ∴ ᚲ.
"Ritual Death Industrial" has never sounded so good. From the gospel inclinations of "Death & Ecstasy" to the rage of "All Flesh Has Corrupted" to the declamations of "Serpent Seed", Kainskult is a classic that warrants repeated plays.
This Is Darkness
TxRxP has broken new ground for the death industrial sound while paying proper respect to the style’s inaccessible nature.This album remains firmly rooted in brain-bashing claustrophobia. Trepaneringsritualen produces something his fans will adore, but also provides enough approachability for those lost in the sonic fray — making Kainskult one of the most potent death industrial releases to drop in recent years. Full review: wp.me/p8wD9U-wW
On Kainskult — the follow-up proper to 2014’s much praised Perfection & Permanence — we find Trepaneringsritualen at its most visceral; utterly devastating in its feral ferocity, and utterly demented in its elemental ecstasy. Kainskult will undoubtably stand as a cornerstone album both in the T × R × P canon, and in the industrial scene at large. In their animalistic frenzy and emotional intensity, these nine songs immediately envelop the listener and threaten or promise to drive you to the brink of madness.
Kainskult keeps all the basic building blocks of Perfection & Permanence: the tribal drumming, the atavistic propulsion, the clattering metal percussion, and the abysmal growls. But somehow it reaches a new level of intensity, both sonically and lyrically. The latter read like a hallucinatory celebration of Kain, the Original Heresiarch. He is cast in the role of archetypal transgressor; the brother to all who wage war against the tyranny of Yaldabaoth. He raises the stone above His head, and with one willful strike slays His brother, the cowering slave. Through this one action He draws the Mark upon his skin, and sets in motion a series of events that will ultimately lead to the dissolution of the created worlds.
