Manifestation, the nightmarish new album from CLOAK OF ALTERING, is the fourth full-length from the band, which is one of the Doppelganger personalities of Gnaw Their Tongues founder, Maurice de Jong, a.k.a. Mories. The record is out today.

Cross the threshold of sanity and enter the demented realms of CLOAK OF ALTERING’s Manifestation exclusively at The Quietus RIGHT HERE.

The Dutch black/industrial/noise metal architect Mories, known throughout the underground realms for his works with Gnaw Their Tongues, Seirom, Aderlating, Mors Sonat, De Magia Veterum, among others, returns with the follow-up to the maniacal 2014 CLOAK OF ALTERING album Plague Beasts. The warped Manifestation unleashes yet another brain-scrambling blast of mutated symphonic black metal, nightmarish breakcore madness, and hellish electronics fused together into a sweat-soaked, chrome-plated nightmare.

Compared to previous works, the seven-song Manifestation is a slightly less chaotic monstrosity, giving these blackened maelstroms added room to breathe, but the cumulative assault of CLOAK OF ALTERING’s sound on the band’s fourth album continues to thoroughly scorch the listener. The sound is still rooted in a bizarre confluence of majestic synth-drenched black metal, skewed industrial heaviness, and fractured Planet Mu-esque electronic music, seemingly as informed by the hallucinatory throes of early Coil and the violent breakcore of Bong-Ra and Venetian Snares as it is by classic Nordic black metal. Strange contrapuntal riffs weave drunkenly amid crackling electronic glitch and eerie drones. The vocals here often take form here as a vile, guttural robotic croak, a sickeningly putrid android presence that is layered among the rest of the distant shrieks, anguished screams and chilling, garbled cries that all feel as if they are trying to escape the bowels of some nightmarish AI system.

Crucial Blast will issue Manifestation on CD and digital platforms today, December 4th. Purchase at the label’s main website HERE and via Bandcamp HERE.

Crucial Blast?

Crucial Blast is preparing Spectre Music Of An Antiquary, the sought out-of-print 2012 album from UK ambient/black/noise metal entity, EMIT, to be reintroduced to the population at the end of October.

Press Release – “The latest album of murky graveyard ambience, deranged synth, phantasmic dread and ritualistic black drift from this cult UK outfit, their first in nearly ten years is surrealistic, spectral music and nocturnal delirium transmitted from beyond the veil and steeped in the mysteries of old Britain, like some twisted, eldritch fusion of Fabio Frizzi, In Umbra Malitiae Ambulabo-era Abruptum, and 80’s darkwave. A must-hear for anyone into the murky surrealistic blackness of artists like Reverorum ib Malacht (a band that has shared members with EMIT in the past), Yoga, Occultation, Uno Actu, Utarm, and Dapnom.”

HERE  is a taste.

Ok, now back to Good Clean Fun’s Positively Positive 1997-2002. “And ask yourself, what would you do?”
