Ungodly fuck. What the fuck is this? What have VESSEL OF INIQUITY created? A gaping hole leading straight to oblivion carved into flesh of reality… This is sonic destruction of otherworldly form. A broken and disfigured chasm of unimaginable aural torment… Press play on the player below and listen for your selves…
The UK’s Vessel of Iniquity is a one-man black/death/noise monstrosity masterminded by recluse sonic sculptor/terroist A. White, and this self titled mini-LP is his debut offering under the Vessel of Iniquity name, although he’s apparently been active in the UK underground/extreme/experimental underground for nearly two decades, under other pseudonyms and monikers.
Vessel of Iniquity is indeed a vessel, a vessel for something unnamable and not of this world. A conduit for some of the most wretched and unholy sonic devastation imaginable. Through the cruel spires of the most deviant and bludgeoning black and death metal, and of the most abstract and pulverizing harsh noise and extreme drone, White has created the unimaginable – opening a portal to another dimension and birthing something of unheard ugliness. I never would have imagined one day to be listening to something akin to Impetuous Ritual and Teintablood having an orgy with Gnaw Their Tongues and Sutekh Hexen, but here we are, in total disbelief, licking the wounds this heathen aberration has inflicted upon us with its wretched wake of destruction.
Vessel of Iniquity self titled tapes and vinyl are officially slated for release on January 19 2018 through Sentient Ruin in the US (pre-orders here and here) and through Xenoglossy Productions in the EU (pre-orders here) – coming in two different colors for the EU and US market.
