SLUG CHRIST: noisecore / mathgrind vocalist goes bleak and psychedelic in new post-apocalyptic rap video

1 min read

Fresh off the release of his book and his last album on the reformed Eyeball Records (The Number 12 Looks Like You, My Chemical Romance, etc.), SLUG CHRIST (real name Chaz Bell), the vocalist from the noisecore/mathgrind band An Isle Ate Her (who also have a remastered 10th anniversary vinyl reissue of the album ‘Phrenia‘ coming out later this year), has come back to Blackhouse Records Ltd. for his new album scheduled for the end of this year on Vinyl, CD, and Cassette, and today we’re stoked to give you a foretaste of the release with new song & music video “MEGA MONKEY MACHINE MOTHER: Galaga Strain”.

Comments Chaz Bell (SLUG CHRIST): “Sonically and to an extent, lyrically, the song was created to stand in opposition of these evasive trends within modern music which have seemingly homogenized it all into the soulless trend-riding derivative state that it’s in today.”

Asked about the lyrical content, he continues “Lyrically the song was recording using the freestyle a few bars, think, then punch in process which I learned from lil Wayne back in the day. This stream of conscious style of writing lends to the psychedelic absurdity of beat. I wasn’t trying to necessarily convey some sort of well thought out concept, it was more so an attempt at expressing that feeling of existential dread I mentioned earlier, and the confusion that accompanies that dread.”
