Last fall the Indian label Cyclopean Eye Productions released the debut demo of a part-Indian, part-Russian trio who chose Jyotiṣavedāṅga for their name, a name that refers to the Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa, which we’re told is one of the earliest known Indian texts on astronomy and astrology. The demo has the evocative title Cannibal Coronal Mass Ejections. Cyclopean Eye is now releasing that demo in a CD edition that includes not only the original six tracks but also one previously unreleased bonus track, which we have the pleasure of premiering today.
This newly revealed piece of audio murder is “Disintegration To Absolute Void“. Drawing upon musical ingredients that include black metal, harsh power electronics, death metal, and the dying radiations of collapsing galaxies, the song is a shattering, staggering assault on the senses.
The music is profoundly otherworldly, blood-freezing, and intensely disorienting, but it also hammers the cranium so powerfully and with such tremendous destructive force that it will get your head moving up and down as it fragments.
Ambient alien emanations shimmer and drift through the opening moments (and return again at the end), but intergalactic hell breaks loose soon enough in a cacophony of abrasive noise, massive jackhammering rhythms, monstrous echoing roars, and horrific howls. Deep chords moan and groan through the maelstrom… and then the serious pile-driving begins about three minutes in, the brute-force rhythms laced with a burst of spectral soloing.
Below I’ve included not only our own track premiere but also one more terrifying song from the demo, “Great Annihilator”. If you like what you hear, the MCD can be ordered for 12.50 Euros, which is inclusive of registered airmail shipping and PayPal fees. To order, e-mail Cyclopean Eye at email@example.com.
