Mechanical Christ on LP

LP version. Includes printed inner sleeve. Australian post-industrialists Kollaps are a three-piece creating a unique brand of primitive noise "intended for degenerates and outsiders". The band's distinctive primordial tones are created using appropriated waste materials like scrap metal, raw plastics, and steel plates combined with blistering percussion, bass, and vocals. This is no empty "industrial" gesture, for the band this process of creation facilitates the literal use of postmodern society against itself. Mechanical Christ, the band's sophomore release, is a conceptual continuation of it's predecessor, Sibling Lovers (2017). This release sees Kollaps further their exploration of the inherent societal sickness of our times, one that manifests itself in the debasement of individual morality. Themes of exploitation, vengeance, drug addiction, paranoia, and slave labor are part of a dissonant, inverted morality play. Testament to the band's evolving conceptual depth are the overarching themes of love, life, and death that offer a sense of shared experience in the discomfort of the universal human experience. Known for their violent and nihilistic stage performances, this recording encapsulates with harsher clarity the visceral confrontation that is Kollaps' live act. Mechanical Christ was recorded and mixed over a two-month period at Aviary Studios by Mike Deslandes, and mastered by James Plotkin/Plotkinworks. A journey into the desperation and lack of resolve that is both the crux of modern social ills and at the very heart of the human condition.
