This is yet another project involving Oatmeal (Red Ink / Tone Deaf / etc). This one also pulls in Wally Shaw of Deitiphobia fame. The sound is guitar-centered industrial with heavy riffs, fast beats, samples, and distorted vocals that are often shouted or whispered. “Temple” is a killer song that features Wally… errrr…. “MC White E” on one of his few appearances. This was a SLAVA Music release before they joined with Blonde Vinyl, so it mentions asking for a SLAVA catalog. Wish I could still find one of those catalogs! The sound was also compared to Godflesh, or even Ministry meets Deitiphobia. I can see that. Apparently this act was signed to Blonde Vinyl at one point, but an album never materialized, unfortunately. Icon Tack is also briefly mentioned on this tape, as the song “Sanctuary” was apparently an Icon Tack song at first. Icon Tack was also Wally Shaw – it was originally a project called Sanctus that changed names to Icon Tack. There was also a demo tape at one time, and Icon Tact was also supposed to release an album called Clean on Blonde Vinyl. That never happened, but some or all of that project morphed into Deitiphobia’s Clean album a few years later. All of this “could have been” stuff is kind of sad.
