about

We kickstart 2020 with the brilliant curveball "Anomaly", and welcome Metalogue's official entry to the Combat Recordings fold.

A skilled producer and strong affiliate of the Towards Collapse events in London, the hard yet abstract, fierce yet melodic contrasts of Metalogue's production and live sets has put him on the Combat radar for a long time now; we are fortunate to have this great collection of tracks for release.

Returning to the industrial tempos of his earlier work, Metalogue pushes his characteristically dark, cinematic soundscapes to new extents with crystalline melodies, hard percussion, clattering breaks, razor-sharp synths and enveloping sub-bass.

Drawing influences from works of zonal science fiction, Anomaly was written as a rhizomatic maze, where each track references the others by cyclically recombining, splicing and mutating their sonic material into new forms. This evokes a sense of echoing multiplicity in the listening experience where every track contains warped reflections of other moments in the work.

This process was amplified through several collaborations. East London producer Fluff incorporated harrowing vocal performances and a mesmerizing piano modulation of the core melodic theme, whilst acclaimed noise artist Eye Spirit wrote and performed a narrative contemplation which appears at various points in the record whilst evading presentation in its entirety.

Finally Combat Recordings stalwart Monster X transformed elements from across the whole record into a truly brutal IDM/rhythmic-noise re-imagining of the entire Anomaly concept.
