Work on the new THEOLOGIAN album has officially resumed as of last night. I've been slowly making some upgrades to my recording setup, and I'm looking forward to the changes that are coming.
The debut album by SLAVERNIJ is now in stock, and next weekend, I'll be shooting a new music video for the project with Gretchen Heinel and Mizz Amanda Marie (the model who graces the album's cover art), while MIDNIGHT ZODIAC LEATHERWORKS will once again provide costuming.
Audio previews from both of the above are now on our Soundcloud.
I continue to refine my website. Graphic design services are available.
In spite of the above, I continue to struggle to get my ducks in order. Patience is, as always, appreciated.
The July 28 show should be a good kick in the pants for me, and August 13 promises to be a kickass way to celebrate the label's anniversary, and for me to come to terms with my approaching old age.
LAMENT CITYSCAPE and THEOLOGIAN present OLD FLYEATER,
from the collaborative album, SOFT TISSUE.
CIPHER PRODUCTIONS' double vinyl reissue of NATURE IS SATAN'S CHURCH is getting closer. There were some technical problems during the vinyl mastering process, but they are being handled. Immense thanks to Chris Groves for taking on this massive task.
On August 13, we will celebrate the 19th anniversary of the founding of ANNIHILVS, first with a live lineup featuring the dirty Jersey powernoise of CENOTYPE, a collaboration between TELLADICTORIAN and THEOLOGIAN, and NYC industrial-metallers HOGWASCHE. We'll switch gears after the bands for a late-night weirdo dance party. This event will also serve as my 45th birthday party...
The AUTUMN DIRGES HARVEST FESTIVAL, featuring performances by BRUT, COMPACTOR, GNAW THEIR TONGUES, KINTAAN, LAMENT CITYSCAPE, SPETTRO FAMILY, STATIQBLOOM, SWOLLEN ORGANS, TEN THOUSAND MILES OF ARTERIES, THEOLOGIAN, THE VOMIT ARSONIST, will take place October 28-30 at TRANS-PECOS.

The AUTUMN DIRGES HARVEST TOUR will haunt Philadelphia on Halloween night at Franky Bradley's, followed by a mid-week Baltimore gig, then we'll head up the east coast for shows at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Space Gallery in Portland, Maine, and a final show in Montreal. The Halloween date will include SLAVERNIJ, the collaborative project of Daniel Suffering (WHORID) with Eric Eijspaart and Maurice De Jong of GNAW THEIR TONGUES.
We've set up a fundraiser at Indiegogo to help with travel expenses for the fest and tour.
The new full-length from SLAVERNIJ is NOW IN STOCK! AUDIO PREVIEW
SLAVERNIJ was commenced as a partnership by Eric Eijspaart (MOWLAWNER) and Daniel Suffering (WHORID) following a collaborative release between those two projects in 2014. The self-titled SLAVERNIJ debut also features input from Mories. When GNAW THEIR TONGUES at long last began performing, ANNIHILVS jumped at the chance to bring Mories back to New York, where GTT headlined APEX FEST VI and, as both ADERLATING and SLAVERNIJ, collaborated live with Daniel Suffering on select dates of the APEX FEST VI tour. In the wake of these performances, SLAVERNIJ has expanded to include all three members for future material.
A sexual terrorism like no other. Blasphemy and sodomy...bloodlust and greed...
From the depraved minds behind heavy electronics acts WHORID, ADERLATING, MOWLAWNER, and GNAW THEIR TONGUES, spills the undulating, gurgling mass of grotesque sonic abuse known as SLAVERNIJ.
Taking their name from the Dutch word for Bondage, “a state in which a human is property of another, or is treated as such,” SLAVERNIJ creates oppressive, cavernous atmoSpheres, formulating dungeons of the mind, from which there will be no escape. SLAVERNIJ toys with depravity as its prime theme, wallowing in tension and terror. With tyrannical, undulating synthetic bass tones and grinding frequencies which rip at the listeners’ bare skin, this filth will leave you mesmerized by its nauseating beauty.
ANNIHILVS proudly presents the label debut of NYC filth electronics act SWOLLEN ORGANS, solo endeavour of Jimmy Aly (THE COMMUNION). FEELINGS ABOUT GENDER GUILT OVER TIME takes a long, hard, sweaty look at the tenuous relationship between gender roles. Fraught with uncomfortable quiet moments and overbearing aggression, this release is a disturbing examination of sexuality, through the lens of misanthropy.
Finally emerging after nearly six years of delays (and now, a change of title), ANNIHILVS presents the final EP from Providence duo Pippi Zornoza (WOLD, BONEDUST, RECTRIX) and Annapurna Himal von Wagner, in their incredible (and sadly, now long-defunct) post-doom incarnation VVLTVRE.
Terrifyingly heavy, bleak, and beyond abyssal, this release will stand as a fitting eulogy for one of the most incredible bands with whom this label has had the pleasure of working.
ANNIHILVS presents the newest album from HUSERE GRAV, a barren, frigid array of meditative, atmospheric drones. Reminiscent of early releases by JARL, ENTROPY AND ILLUSION transports the listener to an ever-expanding internal void, beyond the wall of sleep.
