Label: Cold Spring ‎– CSR268CD
Format: CD, Album
Country: UK
Released: 08 Feb 2019
Style: Noise

As Vivian Slaughter morphs into Viviankrist, the music also changes from the intense cold desperation and raw nerve brutality of GALLHAMMER into a kaleidoscope of electronic sounds... still brutal and shattering, and still depicting soundscapes that close in on the darker side of the soul.

A way to escape the dull pressure of a reality that sometimes seems to slip away into psych wards and chemicals. A reaction towards indifference. A shard of mentality released in wave after wave of fully analogue sounds, sometimes disturbed by digital intrusions.

The twilight and dawn of things to come from a renewed Viviankrist.

File under: Japanese Noise / Power Electronics / Electronica.

Viviankrist interview with Noisey​ / Vice Magazine​: noisey.vice.com/en_au/article/gy7pgw/japanese-black-metal-icon-vivian-slaughter-is-resurrected-as-viviankrist

"Sometimes the music she makes is harsh noise, sometimes it is pure electronica, more often it’s in the borderlands between those genres, but it’s always, like Gallhammer, utterly individual.... with Morgenrøde, Vivian has managed to find one of the few musical idioms which is even further from the mainstream, but she has also made an album which is as beautifully vibrant as it is sometimes opaque, a moving and multifaceted work of brittle highs and murky, volatile depths, and not just another wall noise endurance test." (Echoes And Dust)

"...la radicalité des choix esthétique reste, elle, mot d’ordre... La culture sonore de Vivian a été marquée par la vague noise japonaise et les tumultueux aplats de Morgenrøde s’en font l’écho. Même lorsque la mélodie impose ses boucles gorgées d’infrabasses, Viviankrist infuse en surface une dose de bruitisme... Nous ne sommes pas ici dans l’absolutisme d’un Merzbow, mais bien dans l’idée de combiner expérimentation et lisibilité." (Obskure Mag)
