Going back to the mid-90’s, the obscure Austin, TX outfit Korperschwache (German for “organic decay”) has issued a steady stream of releases into the deep underground, landing somewhere between the early UK noise rock scene, the skull-rupturing power of Japan’s more extreme noise artists, the massive gravitational pull and formless guitar crush of bands like Earth and the Melvins at their most art-damaged, and, in more recent years, a filthy, blackened, low-fidelity underbelly that hints at the mutated black metal of bands like Abruptum, Necrofrost, and Vondur. The majority of these older releases have long been out of print, but now, in conjunction with the brand new Evil Walks album, Crucial Blast has assembled a series of reissues of early Korperschwache material, some of which has never been heard by anyone outside the band’s immediate circle. 2001’s Tumescent Love Songs for Psychotic Drifters was recorded during the band’s descent to a new level of heaviness. Mixing the harsh noise aspects of the earlier material with more Skullflower-style guitar and ultra-distorted industrial sludge, it marks the beginnings of the crushing assault that RKF has maintained all the way up to the latest album Evil Walks. Opening with a skull-rupturing din of roaring psych-guitar overload and blown-out amplifier buzz, these seven dirges are made up of heavily wrecked riffs, jittery electronics and sludgy chords awash in massive amounts of distortion and feedback.
