Deadpanist Truly unique in its concept and execution, an easy favourite. Those one-note monochords play the stereo field nicely, great use of synths and pads, sparse but efficient vocals. Ritual, droney, occult...what's not to love? Plug in, tune in, drop out.

Maxim Mig Thanks guys, this was a real revelation. Looking forward to hearing your new material 🖤
Ippocalyptica thumbnail
Ippocalyptica Take the absolute single-mindedness and primitive savagery of Thecodontion and combine it with the deranged and psychedelic ritualistic leanings of Beherit’s ambient explorations, and you might have an idea of what to expect on Plague Organ’s Orphan. While some people might hear excessive repetition, I instead take this to be devotion to an immersive and harrowing journey, any escape from which is impossible once started. This is the perfect album to plunge you into total abjection.

Orphan 39:13


With influences ranging from deviant free-form jazz, drone and dark ambient, to ritualistic black and death metal all the way to the most erratic strains of kraut and improvised psychedelia, abhorrent avant-garde/ambient black/death metal deformity Plague Organ debut with their first ever offering, "Orphan", a spiraling and malformed mantra of deviated experimentalism and inverted incantations designed to bore into the listener's mind and ravage it of its sanity. On the single forty-minute track, the deranged Dutch duo (who feature members from death metal deliriants Cryptae, Imperial Cult, Dead Neanderthals are more) unravel a single nauseating and diseased spell of guitar-less aural claustrophobia made of hallucinating synth patterns, obsessive percussions, psychotic bass-lines, blood-curdling grunts and spectral lamentations that combined unison weave a suffocating and disorienting fractal of self-replicating passages, making the listener feel asphyxiated in a dimensionless maze with no discernible exit. Trapped inside the near-geometric absurdity the listener becomes the subject of a lucid nightmare as they sink deeper into a state of catatonic delirium and of helpless hypnosis while their psyche is meticulously consumed and devoured by the album's abhorrent repetitions and winding hypnotic deformities. By all means a triumph in fringe sonic experimentalism and among the most accomplished and unclassifiable avant-garde extreme metal anomalies of the year, "Orphan" is a must for all fans of other deranged experimentalists like Ride for Revenge, 夢遊病者, Sunn O))), Chaos Echoes, Antediluvian, Oksennus, Sect Pig and beyond.
