Imagine a fucked up crossbreed of (Salt Marie Celeste era) NURSE WITH WOUND, KHANATE and THROBBING GRISTLE and you can start to imagine the sound of New Zealand’s MRTYU! MRTYU! is Antony Milton of the PseudoArcana label, NETHER DAWN, a BLACK BONED ANGEL member, and a proflific solo artist with releases on LAST VISIBLE DOG, JEWELLED ANTLER, CELEBRATE PSI, etc… The sound is a mix of back woods New Zealand and modern urban decay. When the deep bass detonations lash out on “Rites of Death in Body Temple” you’re not quite sure whether it’s the sound of an ancient Aboriginal ritual or the menacing 808 war march of a midnight low-rider with its lights low and sawed-offs strapped. Harsh noise, Industrial Sludge & Narco-Metal meeting at the crossing of the Styx.
