This group of strangers has its origin in the electronic underground punk scene of Surabaya. Nobody knows who they are, how many they are, or what their real names are. The name of the project is Pyroclastical, and its function in this world is to blow up your mind. Pyroclastical is a mixture of raw sounds that make you think… but without any pretension to be “excessively” intellectual.
This album is a sound collage inspired by the concept of “Axis of Evil”, popular on the media during the War of Afghanistan in 2003.
It is not a political criticism, but a critique of the nominal and mainstream concepts of propaganda and capitalism. But not only in the fields of politics.
Some people trust in leaders and that’s fine, but many times we are deceived by them, because we trust on their promises… in a blind way… and some people steal our illusions without any remorse, pointing to others as the guilty powers that caused all the mess and despair.
Each one of the tracks refers to a city in the member countries of the “Axis of Evil”.
Disco Horribilis:Latin. “To Learn of the terrible”; “Horrible dance music”
Canadian dark disco provocateurs SEMEN PRIEST (remember when they sent us a blood-filled condom?) are back with their second album. More groove and less blood this time out, but no less bile. In support of self-abuse/love, in protest of rape culture & violence against women. Rex and Zsa Zsa call for the downfall of crack-smoking mayors and burning the perpetrators of acid attacks.
