CONTROLLED DEATH - Ritualistic Mutilation in the Bloody Darkness
"Controlled Death is the dark side project by the Japanese noise legend Maso Yamazaki, aka Masonna. In April 2018 he decided to make a shudder debut with first album Symphony For The Black Murder (UMA 125CD) then followed at the beginning of 2019 from second work in an astonishing black wooden box that included Journey Through A Dead Body on vinyl and Deathwish Tapes 1-3 on CD and double-tape (UMA 130LP). Now there's yet another mind-boggling work on double-LP recorded during 2019, Ritualistic Mutilation in the Bloody Darkness. Wild and amazing, this one is absolutely essential for any fan of synth and dark ambient music. Cracked minimal electronic sound by Korg MS-20, unclear and disturbing voice with the influence of primitive black metal and dark ritual in this new double-album which developed a moisturized doom world while wearing a raw material texture. While listening to the records, each long track does meander their way slowly through proceedings with silent pauses, but they nonetheless generate a respectably dense assemblage of sounds. The smell of death is soaked in every groove produced by the four vinyl sides. The activities of Controlled Death are like archaic revival to the music experience before Masonna. You can also find the pathology image of the early industrial period and the shadows of Vienna activism such as Hermann Nitsch as well as loose bits of seminal black metal. The existence and art that pierces through conspicuous consciousness and dives to areas of unconsciousness due to death and pleasure. 140 gram vinyl; deluxe gatefold sleeve with impressive photography (of a cave church with the remains of the people who were massacred by the Saracens in 999 A.D. during the invasion of southern Italy) by Aldo Volpe. Edition of 299." - Urashima .
