Come on in. You are on the list. And soon, the slab.
From Below. Destruction. Implosion. Worlds collide. Civilization plummets. Eradication. El Temblor. The earthquake. The Grid fails Drain the life from this depraved society El Temblor. The earthquake. Grant us access to your subterranean tomb El Temblor. The earthquake.
Incredulous is this Your bizarre recitation Please employ our services Your crime requires persuasion Another body on the left And even more to the right We’ll up the level of gore And make sure the weapon is left in view Spare not one from the carnage Move them all into sight Yet shift and shape how they lie Like a tornado came through tonight More flair, more gore. Cover the whole fucking floor When you think you’ve overdone it, do it two times more We aim to please Your mental disease Your quench to endure You always want more There, that’s much better Now that we’ve devoted our time No everyday thug can deliver What our professional tasks provide
It eats It feeds
A switch has flipped. A circuit is fried All final dregs of sanity have died Doppelganger banger, again you appear May nobody else notice how I tremble in fear Deathpulse race with self Grease the cogs of the damage machine Attack for enjoyment Through rapid deployment Of unfuckwithable bent Inhibitions went Last brain cell spent You resemble yourself Reflection of terror Smash all mirrors Continue to fear her Which one are you now? Which one am I? Where did who go? The power is out The grid has failed Prepare to impale Ascertain the results Calculate the damage Inflict with voracity Run up the bill because we’re in for the kill Whirlwind fuckface swirling from out of the night Deathdrenched parchment hung out to dry Rewrite it all, smash/deny/rebuild The data are showing that we are fucked When the lights come back on
Acquiesce in this fantasia Quicksand mind Depopulationist, what reality is this? Exclusive reclusiveness Fucking scourged with nonsensical prowess Unchecked unhingement Infringement contingent It’s in the drink, I’m thirsty React like Jake Mazursky Always walking like I’m on the run Can’t be shook by you when I’m under my own gun Disruptive tranquility, serenity fucking now Ease my conscience and drink me unconscious Ingest the noxious Confirm my eradication Or just change the fucking station
Gusher 02:51
It’s a gusher, a gusher No doubt they’re dead It’s a gusher
Desde abajo. Destrucción. Implosión. Choque de mundos. La civilización se desploma. Erradicación. El Temblor La cuadrícula falla Drena la vida de esta sociedad depravada El Temblor Danos acceso a tu tumba subterránea El Temblor. El terremoto.
Pieces 05:22
Just severed, nothing clever From birth distraught, before violence born Untaught, unwrought, unwound. Vengeance, vengeance by the pound The blade remains a favorite of mine However, I’m not resigned To deviation from the design Perhaps I’ll see things clearer Once I smash through every mirror Pieces. Pieces. Saw your face into pieces Ripping through, slamming you Into pieces Dirty puzzle was the source of this course Mindset enforced, no remorse Never a recourse, endless resource Sympathy comes in the form of a severed head Intent on you becoming dead Unfathomable, inhospitable, laughing in fear An expansion on the cleaver Howl, boil over, and drop the lever Pieces. Pieces I don’t care if they’re your nieces Breaking you the fuck up, reasons aside You are now pieces Let’s bury the hatchet In your face
Tag ‘em and bag ‘em Get the fuck out


Nefarious Industries presents Dismemberment Cabaret, a cinematic and horrifying collaborative album by New York harsh/experimental dark ambient/dark hardcore soloist GRIDFAILURE and world-renowned and multi-platinum New York City-based trumpet player MAC GOLLEHON.

Prohibition-era speakeasy and The Great Gatsby vibes merge with horror/slasher and gritty crime films of the 1970s/80s and projected with unhinged and volatile underworld savagery, matrixed through confrontational foundations in tension, paranoia, and dementia, via broken loops, interrupted transmissions, and denied cries for help.

"GRIDFAILURE (aka noise/audiovisual artist David Brenner) and veteran trumpet player MAC GOLLEHON (who's played on records by David Bowie, Duran Duran, Chic, Blondie, and more) are releasing a collaborative album, Dismemberment Cabaret, on May 21 via Nefarious Industries (pre-order). We're premiering the track "Crime Scene Designers," along with its video, and both the song and video are creepy, psychedelic, sensory overloads." - BrooklynVegan

"Dismemberment Cabaret is no easy listen — no chunky metal riffs, no hooky choruses, little in the way of straight-forward beats — but this is the kind of stuff that music exploration is made of! It’s exciting, adventurous and a little bit scary, but it’s guaranteed to expand your horizons as a music fan (and perhaps haunt your dreams in the process)." - MetalSucks

"Post-industrial beats and a wealth of instruments and samples are run through a sonic blender and then layered under free-jazz, almost bebop, atonal trumpet lines. It is, quite honestly, a lot to take in at once, but it is one of the most wildly creative releases I’ve ever encountered." - Nine Circles


released May 21, 2021
