WEHRMACHT LOMBARDO "AU CONVENT DE PANTHEMONT" CDr (AOW 61)
Cold and alien eroticism drone inspired by the Marquis de Sade's seminal "Juliette," a Satanic descent into sensual pleasures unbound. The spectre of the perverse and the immoral hangs thick over Wehrmacht Lombardo's massive dronescape, with caressing bass tones giving way to distant cracks of the whip and imagined kisses of the tongue, flitting across bare and quivering flesh. The sweet embrace of bodies together, writhing and pulsing, aching themselves across the landscape as one great and heaving mass of orgiastic delight. There is no recognition besides the recognition of the self and the commitment to physical pleasure, the purely erotic becoming both the means and the end. Masturbation attains a level of cosmic communion. Black and infinite hallways extend their reach, beckoning, ever darker, their depths growing more voluminous with each jittering breath. Can you take it all in? Are there any limits anymore?
Altar Of Waste is beyond pleased to release this surreal vision of the lurid, a soothing but troubling exploration of de Sade's philosophy of the bedroom rendered into chillingly distant and sexually anxious drones. Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 20 hand-numbered copies. $10 ppd. in the United States, $18 rest of world.
