RIYL: Fuck Buttons, The Haxan Cloak, Aphex Twin

Label: Sacred Bones Records

Benjamin John Power’s advanced electronic project Blanck Mass is back with a fourth full-length titled Animated Violence Mild, his third album with Sacred Bones Records.  According to the label, the 8 track record is “the diary of a year of work steeped in honing craft, self-discovery, and grief.” His grief is both personal and empathetic, a lament for his own losses and our universal decay, physically and spiritually.  Heavy stuff, but a topic that Power can easily address with the trademark crushing sounds he developed with Fuck Buttons.  Combining industrial electronic, sampling and noise, expect this Blanck Mass album to hit you straight in the gut in the best way.  Every new album shows growth in his style, inventiveness and willingness to explore off the beaten path.

Sacred Bones has a limited green vinyl version limited to 300 as well as a rarer subscription variant limited to a mere 150 copies.  Find out about the club version HERE.  For the UK listeners, there is a ‘dinked version’ on red wax you can find through various online distros like THIS. Listen to the first single below.
