Praying for Oblivion + Francesco Terrini - Abomination [Marbre Negre - 2021]

Abomination is a rather apt title for this collaboration between Buffalo N.Y’s Praying For Oblivion and the Philipino project Francesco Terrini. The five-track CDR release is a nightmarish blend of searing-yet-foreboding harsh noise, murky industrial and grey drone bound texturing, and a few more grating PE elements.

The pro pressed CDR comes presented in a slimline DVD case- this takes in monochrome cover, with the front taking in a crude oil painting of a bow-tied wearing figure with wet and glinting black head. The release appeared in an edition of twenty-five copies, and as of this review, the label still has copies for sale.
 
Things kick off in prime unsettlement with the near one and half minute of “Molten Elements Of Desire” where we find a manically chanting and clearly deranged voice repeating the same phrase over and over-this is surrounded by echoed laughter on a bed greyly feasting noise matter. 
As we move on we come to the just over ten minutes of “Psychotherapy” here we find a grimly hazed blend of lightly flaming noise textures, murky drone currents, swirling and slurred electro-industrial texturing, and buried selection of bayed whispers-to- muffled-yet-pained vocalising. We have the seven and a half minutes of “Bioshock” which finds higher-pitched PE noise grates and swirls, meeting grainy industrial purr, and baying-yet-feasting sub-tone torture. With the release been topped off with the just over two minutes of “Abyssal Surrealism”, which blends nastily searing and feasting noise grain with swirling 'n' ebbing drone unsettlement, and distant dark ambient unease.
 
 
Abomination is a nice cross blend of nasty noise intensity and buried unease/ unsettlement- with both collaborators mixing their sounds together well to create a feeling of distributed and unsettled rage well. Let's hope this won’t be the last collab this pair do!
