Winter numbs the will, the desire, the lifeblood.  Winter is the ultimate isolation, the true and utter natural void.  Howling anti-black, nothing cast as everything, undiscerning, relentless, bitter and caustic.  It gnaws and shreds at every vestige of defense set against it, impervious to any hand save its own.  It crawls across the land, ever hungry and blind, consuming.  Its hollow rage grows and expands, whipping itself into a frenzy of icy knives, stabbing at flesh and instinct alike.  From the cold there is no respite; in the snow there is only the nullification of hope, dreams and memories buried under drifts of piling white waste.
La Mancha Del Pecado summons the winter in the absolutely nightmarish and desiccating "Aciano Y Enfermo."  Inspired by the worst snowstorm in Juarez since 1957 where the artist resides, this is a masterful exercise in drone destructionism, a perfect distillation of the void into a torrent of shrieking and howling amplifier vomit and feedback, the true sound of the deathly north made all the more terrifying and absurd by the fact that this storm manifested itself in the equatorial south.
Altar Of Waste is psyched to release this-these sorts of records are exactly why I started the label in the first place.  You will not emerge unscathed.  Fucking amazing.  Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 20 hand-numbered copies.  $10 ppd. in the United States, $22 rest of world.
