TUMORTUMOR - S/T 12"

Label:     Order05
Year:      2017
Country: Switzerland

Mike from Switzerland's noise-rockers YC-CY is the guy behind tumortumor. With his new project he dares to venture into a more experimental musical terrain. On this onesided 12" you get two claustrophobic and dangerous sounding compositions that seem like a auditory horror trip. Tumortumor take influences from 80s industrial music in the vein of Throbbing Gristle and merge it with eternal drone sounds, alienated effects of electronics, pungent noise and a few pounding beats. That's how the two ten-minute-songs develope a thrilling cold and industrial feel. This whole 12" is a great example of totally unique and non-conformist experimental noise. Don't miss it!
