BLACK SUN PRODUCTIONS – Toilet Chant – Ltd. 300 – white vinyl
Industrial / Electronic / COIL
The musicians and performance artists Pierce and Massimo aka Black Sun Productions initially acquired renown in the noughties with their impressive stage performances at COIL live shows. Thus, their early work Toilet Chant, which was released in 2004 as a limited CD, also includes Jhonn Balance‘s edited voice, which was recorded during the tour.
Toilet Chant is disturbing in its own way. The beseeching and eerily howling sound-collage on the introductory title track causes one to freeze, after which “Anarcocks Rising”, with its chirping beats, is almost a relief. The whole album boasts a rather oppressive and wintry mood and is characterised by experiences with death, drugs and sex. With haunting songs like “Spermatic Chord” or “Glüewürmlitanz”, Black Sun Productions have managed to give their music an unmistakable touch.
Toilet Chant is available on vinyl for the first time via Hallow Ground with completely new artwork by artist Ruth Stofer.
