“Ramraiding thee Abyss" is both a split and a collaboration LP between three units born out of the extreme electronic and experimental music network.
The result of a 15 year long alliance turned into aural assault, blending the three projects’ different styles into a celebration of the chaos, the confusion and the uncertainty, we witness on a daily basis in this ever changing world.
This record features, mostly, new material, including both collaborations between the three units as well as stand-alone tracks.
The sounds, visuals and concept, to be found within this release, have been developed over years of exchanging sounds, ideas and lyrics.
GREY WOLVES (UK) are known to the world as prime movers of the so-called cultural terrorist network and they return on this vinyl with brand-new tracks in their own unique style, made of strongly-crafted noise patterns united with fierce vocal oriented power electronics.
WERTHAM'S brand of Italo-hardcore electronics, goes back to the violent streets of its debut CD, alternating mid/low-end pulsing analog waves to multi-layered harsher sounds, with heavy use of samples and tortured vocals.
SURVIVAL INSTINCT is a splinter cell and an exit strategy, of and from, the Grey Wolves. This unit delivers strongly constructed tracks.
Electronic noise wreckage and underlying rhythmic elements, meet dark ambient / atmospheric soundscapes that build to a high level of intensity.
This is a unit born of Wolves but heading out in its own direction.
Mastered by Yvan Battaglia (LCHM).
This work is co-produced by Old Europa Café with Wertham’s own label “Elettronica Radicale Edizioni”.
Limited to 250 copies, the LP comes on good old Black vinyl, with illustrated gatefold layout and three pins.
Each pin features a logo of the units on this release.
