XUL//EXCELSI A surging postelectronic primitive imagining stretch. Stumble short of ing , which is good actually, cause the flights should be anchored in nothing like this I ever heard before. WTIT? What the fucck i have never heard anything so weird strange and honest before --A.F
tiihku thumbnail
tiihku A true monolith of aural terror that's yet to be topped by any record, even from the band themselves. Choir samples in 'Etude' paint a modern interpretation of Dante's Inferno turned to eleven - MAMA is self-devouring, extreme catharsis guided through blazing hellscape by band's incredible vocalist. Favorite track: Just Like Everybody.

Grindcore. Black metal. Harsh noise. Many fans of these genres tend to gravitate towards them because they push the boundaries of sound, testing our limits of how sonically extreme it is possible to go. And ENDON is fighting to lead the offensive.

Self-described “Catastrophic Noise Metal,” the Japanese quintet have harnessed the most severe aspects of the aforementioned genres to create something that is both wildly ambitious and viciously disturbing. Combining blast beats, tremolo riffing, destructive feedback and fascinating structures, the six songs contained on MAMA have all clearly come from the same warped id, yet are fulfilling and corrupted in singular ways.

Produced by Atsuo from experimental veterans Boris, MAMA is an album that looks for no easy exits. In roughly 40 minutes it swerves from cinematic atmospherics to the din of electronic havoc to near indecipherable bursts of chaos, all while vocalist Taichi Nagura howls, shrieks, growls and wails as if he's both the torturer and the victim.

But despite how challenging and anti-musical the band can be, there are occasional passages of beauty that showcase their careful, nuanced approach to songwriting, even if it is adorned with such great disgust and violence.

MAMA is ENDON's aural crusade for destruction at any cost. Be prepared and get ready to defend yourself.
