This is Reality as the Aliens see it… WALLOWING “III: PHOSGENE”

Many times I’ve wondered what alien voices sound like. Are they small, diminutive beep-beep-boops, or are they so harsh that our ears would bleed? WALLOWING bets on the latter. Their sci-fi sludge/blackened doom/noise record PLANET LOSS that came out on Sludgelord Records (UK) and Black Voodoo Records (US) one year ago explores other life in the universe as something that reflects the worst of humankind. On their track “III: PHOSGENE” they peel back the festering skin of our deepest wound to reveal the writhing, pale maggots of racism, homophobia, and discrimination as a whole, showing us the true nature of our “morality.” The unintelligible shrieking on this track is what I hear in my mind when I see one of those massive flags that insecure White people love to fly off the backs of their Micro P Energy trucks. And that’s no shade on the vocalist because I’m pretty sure that’s what they’re going for in this indictment of oppression set to music so fucking groovy it’s making me want to dance on a cop’s fat face. “III: PHOSGENE” is the third chapter off of PLANET LOSS, which is seeing a brand new CD edition of Planet Loss bundled with a 36-page comic book illustrated by Luke Oram, co-released by Surviving Sounds and Trepanation Recordings in January 2021. Right now, watch the oddly incredible video for “III: PHOSGENE” below, and imagine a world where aliens came down to melt the brains of the bootlickers.
