"Grindcore is love," I thought, some seventeen years of age. Life was ambivalent, except for when it came to love. Part of it came out with these recordings, initially meant for a split with Twitch Savant. Yet years go by, you know, maybe nothing even happens, but all of a sudden connections disappear, disintegrate in some strange post-natural air of our skyscraper hell. You might even think, for a while, "Hollow pocket, hollow heart - to slave away my body or my nerves..."
Noisy nights. Keep looking. How many blastbeats does it take? Eight lo-fi tracks of some steamy, DxAx worshipping, cyberpunk enthusiastic, scrap metal hybrid, no ten minutes long. It went like this:
02. Perfect Blue
03. Bullet Ballet
[DL 01 - 08]
Zmajevdah is a solo project abounding with blastbeats - thanks to everyone who gives it a spin! Glad to be putting it finally up (recorded way back, early 2008 or so / date of e-release: today), "embarassing lyrics" and all (with original [pre-bitcrush] photos of our City, courtesy of Smetnja), as it's been bugging me for quite a while, even though I may have not managed to do what I wanted, especially considering the (sound) quality of the mix. In any case, those who like it may do whatever they want with it.
+ bonus track
09. The Jenova (GridLink)
Good or bad, that's probably the first GridLink cover to have happened (Earth, 2010): The Lo-fi Jenova! Twitch Savant (the guy behind [for example:] Blaencathra) doing the drumming, with me on guitars & vocals. It is included separately as I wouldn't want people downloading the whole package on account of a covered song, (especially) as there is no Zmajevdah / Twitch Savant split anymore. That said, I've never done coke, nor have I dived with a parachute, but playing Matsubara's riffs ought to be a fairly similar experience (next cover, Mortalized?!).
A split CD soon to be released on ZugZwang Records: Zmajevdah with Emotion of Loss, a Russian industrial doom project by the man behind the Quagmire label (who released Sete Star Sept's 4th demo).
