Obsèques – Sou

OOO-40 | C-60 | Digital

Death industrial/Power electronics “NEGATIVE CLIMAX” was active between 2009 and 2013. After several cassettes and live performances, the band went into a long silence. Still, In 2021, the original members reappeared and took on a new name as a sole unit: “Funeral.”
This work consists of three sections with eight tracks at the beginning of Sou’s activity on one cassette, is composed of tape loops of fragmented classical piano melodies and desperate moans throughout, and is devoid of any other extra information. The warmth of a corpse, a decaying spiral staircase from which one cannot escape, and a faded vision through a lifeless soul will disempower those who live in a different image and attract those who live in the same image.
Dubbed from the mono master tape to the normal tape by the vintage duplicator, corrupted in natural deterioration, this work reaches for the first time the “sound that Sou was aiming for,” and together with the laser-printed toner-focused binding, it is a work to be picked up in physical form. This is the first time the album has been released of Sou.
