System Morgue – «Distress»

Cat.# … DNA 202
Release Date … 05.02.2018
Genre … Drone, Guitar Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Impassive short chords repetition collects acid clouds of disquiet and frustration. You stare inward, concentrate on chords’ black spiral which digs in pulsing tissues of memory extracting and reeling up melodies of your colourful remembrances. The black spiral exacerbates concentration and self-isolation and occasionally helps to reach various states from ecstatic burst to catatonic gazing into the void. But soon disquiet and frustration return with the snatch of sullen blues and eventually corrode it with distorted guitar screams bringing it to mental derangement.

Thick and rough chords lay shredded just like wisps of fog in the sky wrapped up by continuous grey overcast of blurry drones. The sky seems sometimes flat, sometimes deep. Like in a nightmare, it falls upon little man stretching on the ground. Or does the man fall through that grey layer of drones? Feeling of distress keeps him depressed. It overwhelms with depleting waves, wrings his entrails with hard loops of discolored guitar chords. With ridiculously waving hands, little man continues his fall upward in the bleak inhomogeneous thick layer of despair. The little man tries to hide in his subconsciousness, to tear up the whirls of distress which are pulling him upwards. Blots of sonorous chords attempt to penetrate fading nothingness but drown in waves of resonant drones while inanimate sonic wind finally disperses pale blurs of little man’s remembrances with vibrating metal strings.

System Morgue – «Forêt Noire»

Cat.# … DNA 197
Release Date … 06.07.2017
Genre … Drone, Guitar Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

System Morgue takes you to the Forêt Noire full of phobias, forgotten dreams and imagery trapped deep in subliminal levels. Follow dense guitar drones, dissolve your emotions and thoughts in their vibrations, submerge in sleepy meditation.

Bunches of short mechanistic loops slowly pulsate behind stolid guitar chords, boost and mirror them, intensifying sonic pressure, spinning sound waves and locking them into spiral. Then pulsation become more frequent, anxiety grows and bursts with high-frequencey guitar yells and melody shreds cacophony in panicky rhythm. Short breather after panic attack, and sound pressure takes over again. Waves of guitar chords tighten distorted melodies in an uneven helix, sometimes ascending to hysterical crescendo, sometimes collapsing in melancholic alienation.

  1. System Morgue – Racines (09:39)
  2. System Morgue – Myrte (06:36)
  3. System Morgue – Forêt Noire (20:34)
