KATHARSIS 4 (cassette Katharsis 1411 Divisidero 29, SF CA 94115)

Self-imposed sonic mutilation for those who enjoy the darkest corner of industrial entertainment; this trio uses tapes and explosive performance and vocal techniques to transmit spoken messages of societal victimization ranging from rape to suicide with sounds that definitely drag you through the mud and blood in a very serious, very humorless way, reminiscent of Throbbing Gristle at their darkest and slowest and possessing much of the complexity and beastly beauty this stuff's needs weigh against its inherently oppressive intent. Perhaps a perfect pill for a generation that wears only black.
