Rere album dated 2002
The double CD comes in a special oversized Digipak.
Second full-length release on Malignant from Navicon Torture Technologies digs deeper into the doomed psyche of NTT founder Leech, in yet another cathartic step down the darkened evolutionary path that began with Scenes From the Next Millennium.
Having coined the term ‘Power Romance, Leech now seeks to refine and solidify the idea into a true sound and vision of his own, once again combining the volatile, highly charged delirium of power electronics with the claustrophobic heavy atmospheres of dark ambient.
The Church of Dead Girls is a darker and more disturbing journey than any previous NTT release, but is nevertheless rife with the brutal honesty which has begun to permeate every facet of the NTT mindset.
A document of crushed emotional states and savage impulses, The Church of Dead Girls asks the listener to face their own worst thoughts and feelings, despite the pain and discomfort, ultimately leaving them with a permeable feeling of uncleanliness.
This is the ultimate expression of Power Romance sensibilities, spanning more than two hours of sonic self-evisceration.
