I’m not entirely sure how to categorize the new Blanck Mass album without simultaneously being too broad and too specific. Sure, “electronic” conveys something, but where to next? Glitch, noise, ambient, darkwave, industrial, IDM, techno, even some straight-up house-esque stippling. It really is all over the place stylistically but is also an extremely concise package mood-wise. Maybe that’s the point – to just feel it and not overthink. Stream the entire album below to feel for yourself, and check out all the week’s in-stocks for more sounds! -MLE
Blanck Mass – World Eater LP
Listen: Full album
“As humans, we are aware of our inner beast and should therefore be able to control it. We understand our hard-wired primal urges and why they exist in an evolutional sense. We understand the relationship between mind and body. Highly evolved and intelligent, we should be able to recognize these genetic hangovers and control them as a means to act positively and move forward as a compassionate species. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Recent global events have proven this. The human race is consuming itself.
World Eater, the new album by Benjamin John Power’s Blanck Mass project, is a reaction to this. There is an underlying violence and anger throughout the record, even though some of these tracks are the closest Power has ever come to writing, in his words, ‘actual love songs.'” -Sacred Bones
