Cassette Roundup II: Land of Decay Records LOD20, 22, 24, and 27
Locrian's "private" label Land of Decay has quietly been churning out tapes and the occasional CDr for the past three years. With twenty-six releases in total, ranging from their own projects to a cassette release of Ash Borer's discography, Land of Decay's eclectic range in music has been home to local friends and bigger artists looking for a quiet release alike. You might remember my coverage of their Servile Sect and Cedars of Lebanon tapes not too long ago (has it really been six months?!), well, now they're back with four new cassettes, as well as a tapebox version of the Bless Them That Curse You collaboration with Mamiffer.
The Persistence of Meaning, Kranker and Convey's Ithi has vastly increased my appreciation and adoration for industrial music. Also, what's with the deer?
All four of these cassettes (and more great releases) are available at the Land of Decay store, where you can also grab the brand new Eolomea and Kwaidan cassettes.
