This is an album worth checking out for the experience alone. To capture desolation and paranoia through sound is not an easy task and yet this album does. These are the sounds of our worst dreams made manifest- dreams of abjection and loneliness.
GRIDFAILURE is the unpredicted, disharmonic outcome of an experiment that rapidly spiraled out of control in very recent weeks.
The genesis of GRIDFAILURE unexpectedly took place in February of 2016 when solo member David Brenner (Theologian, ex-Heidnik, Vise Massacre, etc.) began to conduct disturbing Frankensteinian experimentation on unused material collected from various solo recording sessions over several months prior. With no forethought plan as to what these sessions were to be, by layering these disturbing and off-kilter assorted recordings, the mutated pieces began cannibalizing each other in an uncontrollable downfall; instead of ending the experiment under acres of hard earth immediately, the confused creator dove headlong into the abyss.
Executed between early February early April, the debut GRIDFAILURE recordings have converged into a tortured, perplexing, exploratory attack on the senses, dubbed Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here, which bears eight movements incepted, performed, recorded, produced, and packaged by Brenner. Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here incorporates the abuse of electric and acoustic guitar/bass, violins, harmonica, keyboards, electronics, chimes, drums, bongos, den-den daiko, chains, bells, and more, in addition to the infusion of other components not limited to incineration, bizarre weather systems, tools, and mammals. Layers of unorthodox instrumentation ethereally infested by unhinged waves of unharnessed vocal exploration and punishing rants formulate a biomechanical mistake neither man or nature want to claim.
