Herukrat

Herukrat recently released “Anna Karina”, self-described as “ an exploration of an archetype of womanhood, themed around Anna Karina’s roles in Godard’s films from ‘60 - '67." I’m not sure how many womanly archetypes show through the music, but the noise is brutal, consisting of an immense, unrelenting wall, pierced only by vicious stabs of screaming feedback. It’s a bold statement, and an absorbing, cathartic listen. The piece consists of two sides, Side A (above) and Side B, both of which form a cohesive, brain-scraping whole. 

"Anna Karina” is available on cassette via underground label SVN OKKLT, or as a free download from Herukrat’s bandcamp page.

Herukrat - Alleviation Prayer

Atmospheric noise/power electronics. This is the first proper release by Svn-Okklt. They previously operated solely as a portal for underground Black Metal, now they’re moving into label territory. Yas. And they curated a tape compilation with Fallen Empire a wee while ago (its insanely good). Anyway, this Herukrat tape is grizzly and gnarled and you would be silly to pass it up if you worship drone, distortion and static.

Tapes are purchasable via the Fallen Empire store.

Edit: I forgot to mention that you can grab it for free here.
