Serving as the Volume II to their similarly-named anti-cassette “Crucifiction,” Unholy Triforce return with a new anti-release of punctured pestilence. Quite literally a clear, square, polycarbonate lathe cut with tacks pierced through it, the audio contained within the grooves is equally as unforgiving in concept. Keeping the ultra-short nature of the original, “Cru|cifict|ion” clocks in around a minute and a half of churning rhythms and thundering walls of harsh noise. As a special element, each copy has been cut with locked grooves at random intervals in the end to yield infinite playback lengths of loops unique to each record.
Each anti-record comes pre-crucified with 9 entry wounds, perfectly placed to interrupt and/or prevent playback by means of obstructing the cartridge’s path. They are housed inside transparent PCV boxes screen-printed with black enamel scratch-proof ink, and have been individually hand-stamped with serial numbers in black ink. As bizarre as it is ill-intentioned, “Cru|cifict|ion” is another chapter in the volume of creative destruction that Unholy Triforce have been writing, and it further proves that there is still sting left in their touch.
Notice: Due to the hand-made nature of lathe cut records, the fidelity & consistency of each copy will vary slightly. An assortment of audio ailments such as dropouts, warble, pitch-bending, static, crackle, hiss & extreme frequency shifting are to be expected, and all flaws which may arise are entirely condoned as adding cohesion to the release concept.
