Counterforce, the crowning new release of mentation electronics from Black Mecha (masterminded by Fortress Crookedjaw of Wold), provides raw beats and hooks, alongside reflexive black laser rays, cumulating in a sci-fi themed conceptual rhythm music for your mind / body. The visual art, adorned on the front and back cover, provides advanced actualization of Internal Masonry S. Star Sigil rumination-emanation-metaphor technique, which encompasses special geometric-based inner space / mind constellation illustrations.
Black Mecha is the very strange, minimalist electronic project of Wold mastermind Fortress Crookedjaw. A theory of mind / aural operation inspires these raw sound waves, directed by the electric musical poetry of Internal Masonry, supplemented with sci-fi driven surreal and minimalist analogue patterns. I.M. Mentalizing presents audio realms of glitchy system mental warfare through spazzed robotic thought inducement mechanisms, churned out by penetrating ever-scanning inner lasers.
The Death of Rave is proud to host the initiation of Black Mecha, a new project authorised by Fortress Crookedjaw ov WOLD, introducing a sci-fi vision of heavy electronics strongly informed by the outer limits of black metal and a cryptic, esoteric weltanschuuang. Official communiqué from the Grand Lodge of Internal Masonry: “Black Mecha AA provides fragmented metaphoric sci-fi audio conceptualization based around some of the formative ideology developed by the Grand Lodge of Internal Masonry. With centralized focus on the deterrence and defence technique aspects of Internal Masonry, namely, Black Ray and its resulting Architecture Antithesis, or AA, mental effect, the six tracks create a realm conducive to execution of thought rumination, and an embankment for sharp inner pathways.” For us, Black Mecha does not exist safely within any pre-defined idiom. It is by nature a noumenal gesture in the void, projecting uncharted escape beyond staid, putative perceptions of genre. Fascinating for its sense of discipline and focus, Black Mecha AA is poised in the balance between meditative hypostasis and raging yet controlled emotion, characterised in the bellicose momentum of Starship Aspicio or the strobing, stately majesty of Altruego, and to cataclysmic impact with the eviscerated electronics of Black Ray. But make no mistake: it’s not showboating industrial noise or melodramatic angst; the sense of control amidst panic and dread is palpable and compelling in a way hardly experienced with such elemental force. For listeners of a steeled disposition and open mind there is a logic and ingenuity at...
