Nefarious Industries presents Dismemberment Cabaret, a cinematic and horrifying collaborative album by New York harsh/experimental dark ambient/dark hardcore soloist GRIDFAILURE and world-renowned and multi-platinum New York City-based trumpet player MAC GOLLEHON.
Prohibition-era speakeasy and The Great Gatsby vibes merge with horror/slasher and gritty crime films of the 1970s/80s and projected with unhinged and volatile underworld savagery, matrixed through confrontational foundations in tension, paranoia, and dementia, via broken loops, interrupted transmissions, and denied cries for help.
"GRIDFAILURE (aka noise/audiovisual artist David Brenner) and veteran trumpet player MAC GOLLEHON (who's played on records by David Bowie, Duran Duran, Chic, Blondie, and more) are releasing a collaborative album, Dismemberment Cabaret, on May 21 via Nefarious Industries (pre-order). We're premiering the track "Crime Scene Designers," along with its video, and both the song and video are creepy, psychedelic, sensory overloads." - BrooklynVegan
"Dismemberment Cabaret is no easy listen — no chunky metal riffs, no hooky choruses, little in the way of straight-forward beats — but this is the kind of stuff that music exploration is made of! It’s exciting, adventurous and a little bit scary, but it’s guaranteed to expand your horizons as a music fan (and perhaps haunt your dreams in the process)." - MetalSucks
"Post-industrial beats and a wealth of instruments and samples are run through a sonic blender and then layered under free-jazz, almost bebop, atonal trumpet lines. It is, quite honestly, a lot to take in at once, but it is one of the most wildly creative releases I’ve ever encountered." - Nine Circles
