Well, this probably won't be terribly popular, but this is a relatively unknown page so what the hell. I've long felt that not nearly enough underground-type music comes out of Africa or the Middle East. Like it or not, lawlessness and depravity have called every corner of this planet 'home' at one point in time or another, and for better or worse, the Middle East is home to both for now. So much so that it seems tailor-made for a lo-fi metal treatment. Every now and then, some necessarily obscure demo from 'Damaar' or 'Ayat' will surface, but thats not nearly enough.

Well, Emir Togrul is a half-Turkish, half-Armenian expat who runs an independent record label called Merdumgiriz, and yes, its definitely of the lo-fi metal arena. Good luck hearing them now though, Bandcamp has canned all association with them for their 'troubling' themes. Call me crazy but I bare the knowledge, not the opinion mind you, that frightening realities will 'not' maintain any less of a presence just because cowards don't like being reminded of them. Why is this knowledge and not opinion? For starters, known physics allows for such things. True, the lesser understood quantum realm allows for a lack of awareness to alter an object's placement. Nevertheless, a powerful awareness is required for such things. Alas, reactionaries of any cult or creed, particularly those with a hard-on to accuse others of being reactionaries, have never been noted for their broad attention spans or insightful minds. Clearly this applies to anyone who attempts to alter or destroy evidence of history simply because they are too weak to come to terms with the fact that this planet did not accrete 4 billion years ago simply to cater to their infantile pretensions of reality.

Like it or not, every corner of this planet has been Genocide's home at one point in time or another, and for better or worse, the Middle East is Genocide's home for now. So yes, mass murder is a recurrent theme amidst Merdumgiriz's flock. They are most certainly 'not' NSBM though. There isn't a shred of politics, or nationalism, or any of that idolatrous pond-scum shite in their music. No, they fucking hate 'everyone', and in a confrontational manner as well, and that is among the more worthy of mental postures one could assume. 

So if you like Emir's music, or are intrigued by him at all, then feel free to circulate the link down below, which contains his Malediction toward Bandcamp. A fair warning though beforehand. If you are one of those who believe the artificial status quo you adhere to will 'not' be destroyed and replaced by something else in the not-too-distant future, or otherwise cling like a desperate junkie to any reassuringly human construct, then you will almost certainly not find this pleasant reading. For those relatively awakened and self-aware, read on if you choose.

Some interesting news, Howls of Ebb have released a new EP, and once again I've contributed the cover painting. The vinyl can be purchased or tracks direct-downloaded here- i-voidhangerrecords.bandcamp.c… . It is also possible that there may be a wider CD release in the future, but this is by no means certain yet.
