SIBLING LOVERS

about

Since 2015’s debut EP Heartworm, Melbourne industrialists Kollaps have refined their restless brand of harsh, post-industrial noise. Recruiting doom/noise veteran Damian Coward [Heirs, High Tension] to bass/percussion/production in 2016, Wade Black (vocals) and Robin W. Marsh (drums, programming) offer up SIBLING LOVERS, an LP that intensifies the conflict between the twin energies of confusion and control at the core of Kollaps’ sound.

The band’s distinctive jarring textures and crude tones are created using re-appropriated waste materials like scrap metal, raw plastics and steel beams. For the band, this isn’t an empty gesture to the industrial genre, it’s a way to literally use the detritus of postmodern society against itself. The band also subvert convention by bypassing the desk and running their vocals directly through amplifiers, thereby injecting a hint of their live intensity into the recording. The overall effect is again of contrast- the band’s raw, provocative voice is amplified by the record’s subtly confident production.

Conceptually, Sibling Lovers follows Heartworm’s exploration of a societal sickness that manifests itself in the debasement of the individual soul. For lyricist Wade Black, Sibling Lovers is introspective and confessional; images of actual physical sicknesses (cancer, colostomy bags, heart worms) are used to make sense a malignant world of slaughterhouses, incest and alcoholism.

But it’s their intensity as performers, rather than their gruesome lyrical content that has built Kollaps a reputation for ferocious live shows and violent performances. Steadily drawing raucous crowds around Australia, alongside some of the best local and intentional underground performers [All Seeing Hand (NZ), Armour Group, Military Position, Mensch, Complete, DIM, Elisabeth Dixon, Primitive Calculators].

Mixed by Ivan Lisyak (now of Siberia Records) and mastered by James Plotkin (Sunn0))), Khanate) Sibling Lovers is released September 29th 2017 on TRAIT RECORDS (AU) & SILKEN TOFU (EU) - TRT005/STX.57
