Title: Polydipsia
Format: Cass
Label: Brave Mysteries
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Drawing himself out from within the folds of NNCK, Pat Murano has gone on to litter New York City with the sounds of his grimey electronic meditations and the hallucinatory happenings of numerous clandestine interaction groups such as K Salvatore, Key Of Shame, Raajmahal, or Safiyya. Murano has released a number of his surreal spells as gypsy souvenirs via his private imprint Kelippah. Within this bounty lies one of the most mysterious and undefinable of works, known only as Decimus. Over the last two years we have seen an impressive series of LPs (as well as the odd tape and cdr), all given seemingly arbitrary letters or numbers for titles, most of which were released on Kelippah, as well as several handsome releases on the Italian labels Holidays Records and Planam (a sublabel of Alga Marghen) . The music of Decimus is highly oblique and personal sounding. Uneasy electronic orchestrations flow within and without a m鬡nge of intuitive concrete collage, vocal intonation and ritualized electro-acoustic performance. Like little else before it, except perhaps the likes of Kluster, or another of Conrad Schnitzlers incredible inner space adventures." - Polydipsia.

Title: 11
Format: LP
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Pat Muranos Decimus project has been all over the map in the past few years, undertaking a massive effort to put out a series of 12 albums in accordance with the zodiac of Decimus Magnus Ausonius. Previous to this, Murano was perhaps best-known as one of the founding members of No Neck Blues Band, K-Salvatore, and Malkuth, but it is with Decimus that the full story finally unfolds. With 11, Murano is going schizo and taking you down a hellish aural rabbit hole, deep into the abyss. Digitalis is not exaggerating when they say this might be the weirdest record they have ever put out. 11 opens with layers of looped, rusty-sounding strings mashed together with slowed down, death-rattle vocals. With buried crunch rhythms peeking out from the morass, the whole effect is like wandering through a funeral procession through a post-apocalyptic metropolis. Everything moves rapidly until it doesnt. Murano slows things to a crawl, pushing the demonic howl under a pane of glass. Blown-out minimal beats emerge to carry the bones along, but it feels like the worst is inevitable and theres no place to go but down. And thats when Murano pulls the rug out from beneath. Solemn guitar chords are plucked like feathers, mourning the loss of the sun but never losing faith entirely. Of course, thats just a tease because just as abruptly as it appears, the section is destroyed and replaced by sharp synth stabs and manipulated tribal death marches. Everything has a crunch to it. 11 sounds like an album that was found in a sandy tomb. Its simultaneously ancient and still looking forward. The whole album is so disorienting and disfigured that its oddly beautiful. The thing about this installment in the Decimus saga is how much of a story it tells. Murano deftly jumps from one chapter to another, throwing so many ideas and styles into the cauldron and spitting out something that flows like magic. This is the soundtrack for modern times, in all its ugly glory. Cut to vinyl at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Artwork by Tiny Little Hammers." -Digitalis.

Title: 10
Format: LP
Label: Further
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"No-Neck Blues Band member Pat Muranos work as Decimus has been a prodigious endeavor to dissolve the ego and conventional notions of form from the creation of music. His latest effort for Further Records, Decimus 10, continues Muranos rigorous yet freewheeling cavalcade of bizarre sound events that baffle and beguile in equal measure. The 21-minute A-side is a fungal, fractured, dream-fever soundtrack that makes the Italian horror-flick scores of Goblin sound like Danny Elfman hackwork. Seemingly recorded in the same infernal warehouse in which some of the stranger Smegma opuses were laid down, this piece leaves flaming shards of audio surrealism caroming around your uncomprehending brain. The 20-minute flipside begins like a minimal techno banger being smothered in its motherboard. Soon it morphs into a subtly horrifying hologram of ruptured ambience that will get Demdike Stare fans knees a-tremblin. In Decimus transformative hands, gothic music comes off as something far more disturbing than its usual cartoonish pantomime. The track trundles to the finish line almost how it began, but with more striated squeals of unknown origin. You may want to sterilize your headphones after listening to it, because music this disturbing leaves enduring residue. Shapeshifting enigmatically with twisted inspiration, Decimus 10 radiates a nether-zonely beauty." - Further.

Title: 7
Format: LP
Label: Further
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
“How does one deal with the worlds nightmarish montage of bad news -- the glut of information that incites feelings of futility and insanity? One way to cope is to plunge deeper into the madness, at least temporarily, for a dip into the healing pool of catharsis. Few people in music today provide a more immersive alternate reality on record to combat our own horrible one than Decimus (former No-Neck Blues Band guitarist and synth player Pat Murano). Musical categories dissolve in the mind as one tries to ascertain whats going on in Decimuss sonic universe, realized in a series of 12 LPs dedicated to the zodiac of Roman poet and rhetorician Decimius Magnus Ausonius (c. 310-c. 395). As with some of the most advanced and individualistic musicians (Coil, Demdike Stare, Mnemonists, Nurse with Wound), Murano instinctively generates sounds that seem to bypass normal listening responses and flow directly to the subconscious. Deep immersion in Decimus 7 leads the listener to a disturbing, mind-altering realm. Each aspect of these two epic, side-long pieces feels as if its controlled by a malevolent super-being hell-bent on subverting conventional notions of music. The A-sides untitled track sounds like an alien transmission trying to fight through static and command the listeners soul. Grossly distorted Chrome-like grumbling and icy synth motifs waft over artfully spluttering drum-machine beats, establishing a disorienting, unsettling tone. With alchemical zeal, Murano fills the stereo field with perilous atmospheres, warped and distant melodies, Doppler-effected drones, and bleating percussion. When he brings in a trudging, sludgy 4/4 beat wreathed in mysterious mumbles and aural effluvia, its like an unlikely collaboration between :zoviet*france: and Severed Heads. Side Bs untitled piece starts with distant, bludgeoning beats hitting with unpredictable tempos and force. Four minutes in, a semi-familiar, bulbous rhythm coheres into a bizarre strain of slow-motion trance music, swathed from all directions with slithery, bleepy synth tones and machine-elf utterances geared to enhance your DMT trip. Things inevitably tilt toward chaos and return to the enigmatic static that opened the album. By records end, you have no direction home... nor even a concept of what "home" is anymore. This may be the ultimate distillation of Decimuss chthonic genius. Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Artwork by Chloe Harris.” - Further.

Title: Glass Tetany
Format: Cass
Label: NNA Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"New tape from the solo project of NYCs Pat Murano of No Neck Blues Band, aka Decimus. Pat has been hard at work the last few years crafting his series of self-titled epics on his own Kelippah imprint, and ‘Glass Tetany continues the legacy onto NNA. This release is a disorienting journey through the rolling dunes of far away desert, leaving the listener feeling isolated on unfamiliar terrain. Carrying the tradition of psychedelia into the next age, Decimus weaves dizzying melodies between synth and guitar, ranging from tender to gritty, creating a dense mass of multi-fidelity atmospheres that seem to score a tale of otherworldly travel. Chopped up alien beat work and bionic vocals cut through vapor, disembodying the mind from the physical form. Original cover artwork by the artist." - NNA Tapes.
