Album Premiere: Lung Knots – ‘Golden Dirges, Molten Larynges’

Lung Knotsis a vessel of auditory violence whose sole purpose is to exist in this place and moment in time. It is an overwhelming form of aural terror conveyed through primal and mechanical means, conjoining visceral matter of an organic origin with that of an abiotic one. This together fabricates an entity focused on the seething aspects of interminable dread and the humiliation of flesh. Lung Knots’ essence can be summed up as the channeling of hate and disgust towards man and its progeny, and the very construct of humanity in its current, turbulent state, by weaving together textures that vary from harsh noise to black metal and carefully crafted sound design-like sonical scapes, and everything falling in between. The territory from where these scraps are gathered is a profound, hopeless, and lightless hole, familiar to every single being in one sense or another.

Golden Dirges, Molten Laryngesis a meditative work uniting the mentioned stylistical leanings by methodical yet momentarily improvised, and above all, uncompromising means. While the instrumental execution is composed and executed with precision, the vocal and lyric territory is delivered in the heat of the moment, to denote the raw emotion and agony in as primitive a manner as possible. The result is a rewarding and enjoyable effort in a rather grotesque sense, as while the atmosphere is highly tangible and immersive, it’s equally painful and unpleasant to take in.

Check out our premiere of Lung Knots’s forthcoming Golden Dirges, Molten Laryngesis below:

Golden Dirges, Molten Larynges will be released on CD and tape through Trepanation Recordings and Total Dissonance Worship on February 12th, with pre-orders being open now via the artist and labels.

On the occasion of this premiere, the band offered the following statement:

“I am delighted to be able to finally release the debut Lung Knots full-length with the help of people I’m glad to be able to call my friends, on this coming Friday. After numerous hardships that burdened the creation process of the album, related both to personal knots as well as the tumultuous struggles that last year laid upon us all, being able to push this cavalcade of agony and stream of conscious distress out there is nothing short of a gratifying milestone in both Lung Knot’s and my personal careers, even though it might not sound like one. I couldn’t be more pleased to present this caustic and cacophonic mass of noise to you all, and I hope that the anguish that went into its creation now conveys itself in a more pleasurable, albeit still highly dismal and lightless, manner.”
