Cynical Nihilist

by Reid Karris



“Schadenfreude” and “Phantasmagoria” are two tracks straddling the fine line of jazz and industrial torment: Prepared guitar, skatcheboxes, and unconventional percussion are used to concoct this uneasy listening.

"In a way [Cynical Nihilist] is the spiritual companion of my last release, Rainbow Monolith. While Rainbow Monolith was filled with short spouts of sounds and chaos represented by images of color and digital glitch Cynical Nihilist is two long tracks of density, drone and despair represented by grayscale collage stretched until distorted. They both come from the same place but head in very different directions." -Reid Karris
