GRIDFAILURE Moans of a Thousand Encroaching Illnesses with “Sixth Mass Extinction Skulduggery I” – The Covenant

GRIDFAILURE is sickness given aural form as the experimental project of madman Dave Brenner (ex-Theologian), and marks a departure from his death industrial treatments in favor of hallucinogenic sound collages bringing to mind legends like Nurse With Wound, early Current 93, or a number of experimental film soundtrack composers from Japan or Italy. Compared to his first album however, Sixth Mass Extinction Skulduggery I takes on a much more straightforward, vocal industrial noise approach with a general emotion of hatred and bitterness pervading the record. […] Each track is meant to reflect a different stage in the decay of the human race, realistically reflecting the current events facing humanity today… This adds a very welcome element of diversity to the recording as it truly feels like a story unraveling, though the tone is very much consistently dark from the very beginning of “Sandy” up to the inevitable cliffhanger “Exsanguination of the Utopians”.” – The Covenant
