Terrorizer Streams SEIROM’s ‘And The Light Swallowed Everything’ In Its Entirety

43212526237_klein We could not agree more with the words José Carlos Santos penned about the newst release on Burning World Records (out in 2 days but available to order on the link below!) down over at Terrorizer.com.

Have you ever wondered what Gnaw Their Tongues mainman Mories does when he’s not producing bile infested, soul destroying black noise of the highest calibre? Well, it turns out he also crafts some of the most powerful, emotionally affecting ambience we’ve ever heard under the name Seirom. He’s just released a brand new album entitled ‘And The Light Swallowed Everything’, and Terrorizer is proud to present an exclusive stream of the record in its entirety…

Most of us who were drawn to Mories’ musical output in any of his many projects are part of that group of people who actually enjoy sonic torture and actively search for the most unpleasant, confrontational or just downright ugly music possible. From the torture chamber of the Dutchman’s most known project, Gnaw Their Tongues, to Cloak Of Altering, De Magia Veterum or Aderlating, among others, there’s always been an underlying nastiness to the man’s work that keeps the musical sadist/masochist/both within us fully satisfied.

Though a few of Gnaw Their Tongues’ less openly abrasive latest works (‘L’Arrivée De La Terne Mort Triomphante’ particularly) might have hinted that something completely different might be brewing in the man’s mind, nothing really could have prepared us for Seirom. Regardless what release you discovered this project with, whether on one of the earlier short EPs, first proper album ‘1973’ in 2012 or just now with this new full-length, the shock is essentially the same.

First of all – yes, it’s all beautiful. It’s all outrageously beautiful, hauntingly, harrowingly, luminously beautiful. The sounds created by Seirom are expansive and inspiring enough to warrant a petition to have them as the official soundtrack to the new ‘Cosmos’ series, but that’s not the biggest shock. What hits you the most is the moment where you realize that Mories (you’ve noticed the reversal of his name for this, right?) is essentially doing the very same thing he’s done in Gnaw Their Tongues. The samples, the electronics, the guitar effects, the overpowering fullness of the sound, the tools are all exactly the same, except used in a completely different way for completely different effects. It’s like a reformed torturer suddenly started using his iron maiden to store ice cream.

Though there’s been already a few Seirom releases, ‘And The Light Swallowed Everything’ really is the epitome of the project so far. The title really says it all regarding what you can expect. Do you know when death or near-death experiences are sometimes portrayed in the movies from the perspective of the dying, when there’s a huge flash of white light that fills the whole screen? This album is a sort of sonic equivalent to a still frame of that exact moment. For 47 whole minutes. And it still doesn’t feel like it’s enough.

SEIROM and the light swallowed everything now availabe for pre-order

43212526237_klein–    If 80s 4AD-records would be transformed to the now they would sound like this.
–    If Sofia Coppola would make Lost In Translation II this would be the soundtrack.
–    This is a record that could only have been made NOW: it incorperates black metal, showgaze, post-rock, new wave and transforms those genres into one blissfull avalanche of sound.
–    Mories, the evil mastermind behind such pseudonyms as Gnaw Their Tongues, Aderlating, De Magia Verterum, has worked the 10.000 hours on his music (probably twice). The time you need to get really good at something according to Malcolm Gladwell. And the light swallowed everything is the culmination of everything he has done in the last 10 years.

SEIROM is about ‘beauty’ and melancholy, the more beautiful aspects of life.
SEIROM is about personal expression without boundaries, internal or external.
SEIROM is about grand bombastic melody filtered through noise and black metal aesthetics. The marriage of wedding bells to blastbeats.
About a certain feeling…a longing lost long ago.

SEIROM is M.C De Jong, mastermind of Gnaw Their Tongues, ADERLATING and others, a stalwart of bleak and desolate music for many years. SEIROM sees a different side of De Jong’s musical output, an outpouring of glorious light

And the light swallowed everything is Seirom’s 2nd album after 1973, released on Aurora Borealis-label in 2012.
The album is available now on vinyl and cd in the Burning World records webshop.

SEIROM to release new record on Burning World Records

seiromBurning World Records is proud to reveal that the second album from Seirom ‘and the light swallowed everything’ will be released on our label.

That history will now be continued with his new project Seirom.

The album will be out on vinyl, cd and digital and will be released on May 1st 2014. But visitors of the Roadburn Festival 2014 can get the colored version of the vinyl at the release show of ‘and the light swallowed everything’ that will take place on Thursday April 10th in Cul de Sac, Tilburg.

Gnaw Their Tongues L’Arrivee De La Terne Mort Triomphante review at aQuarius

gnaw-their-tongues-larrivee-de-la-terne-mort-triomphanteOur good friends at aQuarius Records in San Francisco have received a nice packet of Bunring World and Roadburn Records releases. Earlier this week we published the Bong review, now it’s time for their review of Gnaw Their Tongues L’Arrivee De La Terne Mort Triomphante LP.  If you are as impressed with the description as we are, please your copy in our discogs store or if you are in the US at aQuarius of course!

‘The sound here too seems a bit more lush, more produced, cleaner, but without losing any of the filth. We might go so far as to say this is the most accessible GTT release to date, but then it’s all relative, this is still some seriously crusty, devastatingly brutal, menacing and mean black doom misery, but deftly woven into something more melodic, more emotionally charged, where past GTT records were simply hateful and hellish, pummeling and punishing, L’Arrivee De La Terne Mort Triomphante is something more, an epic, intense journey, the soundtrack element can’t be understated, this totally plays out like the score to some insane, and insanely harrowing epic, a tale of death, and lost souls, and the end of humanity, and total annihilation, but as with all great epics, there continues to be hope, a glowing ember, that sits at the middle of it all, waiting to be discovered, and to perhaps eventually triumph, or perhaps to perish and disappear into utter and unending blackness. Quite possibly the most epic black doom cinematic symphonic noise metal opera EVER.’
