Based out of Richmond, Virginia, NEVER PRESENCE FOREVER has been in existence since 1998, barring a hiatus from 2005 to 2010. The outfit bears a sturdy foundation of previously-released material, including a collaboration with Dead Raven Choir, split releases with the likes of Isolated Existence, The Austrasian Goat, Monolith Zero, and Metaconqueror among others, and compilation tracks for Yamabushi Recordings, Darker Days Ahead, Flingco Sound System, Misanthropic Agenda, and more. The split leads with NEVER PRESENCE FOREVER producing more than 15 minutes of dark ambient/death industrial soundscapes in a thematic delivery through paired tracks, “Unwell” and “12205.” Ebbing drones and slow-motion magnetism culminate and intensify into immersive surges of energy, creating a surreal, immersive experience.

GRIDFAILURE was born in the wooded Northern rim of NYC in early 2016. The soloist has since produced a bulky amount of new material; 2016 has seen the release an album, an EP, and a collaborative track with Walking Bombs prior to this split, and several full-length albums, EPs, and collaborative releases are currently in their final trials for early 2017 release. Drenched with pyroclastic vocals which depict present day ecological collapse, elements of cancerous power electronics, fractured tribal rhythms, terror-inducing horrorscapes, subterranean metal, and experimentation with field recordings merge on the solitary sixteen-minute B-side GRIDFAILURE movement, “Lifecycles Decay.”

Both NEVER PRESENCE FOREVER and GRIDFAILURE are immersed in the creation of new material, with future collaborations and releases together likely.
