Anatomy of the Heads // Jungle Cult Terror Tape

  • Availability:

A cassette released in December 2022 with a limited edition of 12 by Anatomy of the Heads, a strange beats trio from Banana, Republic of Kiribati.

Contains 6 dark noise strange beats songs that will make you feel as if you are peeking into a ritual that you are not really supposed to see. DL code included.

Below are the explanations by the authors.

In the hinterlands of Sumatra, there is a village famous only for its annual procession to the ruins of an ancient pagoda.This traditional ritual comes from an evil heathen and is accompanied by the most wonderful music ever heard.This music is shunned by the ignorant public for accepting its barbaric origins.During a chance visit to Sumatra, we began to suffer a slow madness.Every night, half asleep, half awake, I was hypnotized by the gamelan music on the local radio station.After the orchestra finished playing, we were mesmerized by the noise of the radio as if it were part of the composition.A few days later, we were compelled to look for the origin of the music.However, those musicians were social misfits called 'primitives' and 'rednecks'.But these musicians loved the raw pagan nature and were able to create gamelan.Musicians who understand that drama is the supreme rule of all music.They have irrepressible desires and venomous passions, and their carnal philosophy of life seems to permeate every performance.Of course, we invited them in for three days of recording, and the result is this new EP.But what makes them different from other traditional orchestras?Ostensibly, their gamelan is romantic yet classic, depicting a brave voyage of exploration.It is characterized by a slow, melancholic beginning that symbolizes primordial darkness, an epic overture blessed by a blazing sunrise, and a heavy and complex third act, like a raging sea.It's in this meandering third movement that their brutally ritualistic edge shines through.Like a witch's Sabbath dream, these movements depict a vast primordial landscape filled with detestable gods and the struggle of life within it.Despite its diabolical charm, its chaotic composition ultimately leads to an apocalyptic triumphant finale.Their seekers overcome death.By listening to their work, you will feel their essence moving within you, as we do.And you too will be transformed.

" Deep in the hinterlands of Sumatra, there is a village whose only claim to minor historical notoriety is an annual procession around the ruins of an ancient tower. In a ritual of dark heathen origins, this tradition is accompanied by some of the finest music you have ever heard. Music that is shunned by the ignorant masses on the basis of its embrace of its savage origins. During a chance visit to Sumatra, a disease of slow insanity, started to descend upon us. Every night, half-asleep, half awake , we were hypnotized by the gamelan music of a local radio station. After the orchestra finished, we were entranced by the radio static that seemed to be part of the composition. Any thoughts of sleep left us, and after a few days we couldn' t help but seek out the origin of the music. What we found were social misfits, dismissed as primitive savages or "country bumpkins". However, these musicians were able to create a gamelan with a love of raw, pagan nature. the supreme rule of all music. They embrace unbridled lust and poisonous vitriol in a carnal philosophy of life that seems to permeate their every performance. Naturally, we invited them for a three-day-long recording session and proudly present the results with this new EP. But just what makes them're so different from other traditional orchestras? Ostensibly, their unique brand of gamelan portrays romantic, but canonical, journeys of brave explores. of the blessing received by another blazing sunrise; massive, contrapuntally complex third acts that are just as tumultuous as the raging sea. n which their brutally ritualistic edge shines through. Like a dream of a witches' sabbath, these movements paint the pictures of gigantic primordial landscapes full of spiteful gods and life's struggle to exist in them. Despite their appeal to the demonic, their compositions of turmoil are ultimately followed by an apocalyptic, triumphant finale. Their explorers conquer death. Just as we do, for by hearing their works you will feel their essence moving within you. And you, too, will be transfigured. "
