Morkobot "Morto" Deluxe LP


Product Information

Morkobot"Morto"Limited edition of 500 pieces Handmade silkscreened by Malleus LP + CD
Lin, Lan, and Len have been at the mushrooms again. This is a sonically stout and viciously noxious offering from the experimental Italian three-piece that throbs and buzzes like a huge malevolent alien brain trapped in a fluid-filled tank. 'Morto' is one forty-minute concept track created by two bassists and one drummer, and split into three hefty parts. Part one takes off suddenly in a shower of molten metal then slows to a rumble. The rumble builds gradually like an electrical storm fizzing and humming, at times gaps appear where the staccato angularity of the bass and drums are exposed like ribs on a rotting carcass. Part one ends in eerie near-quiet, evocative of some dead landscape on a far-flung world."

Part two thrusts in like an interstellar dreadnought, all fat and gnarled bass lines and drums smacked hard and crisp. Furious cosmic sludge funk ensues; the interplay between the gurgling basses and the frenetic polyrhythmic drums sounds like the mighty Meshuggah in a dark spaced out mood. The final part of 'Morto' is part math-rock, part giant irritated wheezing cyber-locust. Bizarre techno-convulsive noises like the dying throes of a moon sized super computer screech out of the speakers. The album doesn't rise to a final climax but instead breaks down to a sustained and shimmering wash of unsettling extraterrestrial electronica."

As a testament to their skill and vision, Morkobot could easily lapse into post-rock experimental cliché but never do, instead, they navigate the listener through a nightmare future of insane technology and cold technocratic dystopia, running through a bewildering and combustive stew of instrumental styles like some mad cybernetic Frankenstein made from bits of Miles Davis, Lemmy, and Stephen Hawking. Hold that concept.
