mr sterile So good ! Transporting and atmospheric ... makes me think of early 80's UK goth, The Wolfgang Press, hints of industrial when it was an interesting genre, the sonics meander into sounds that reminds of Saul Williams's hiphop backing tracks.. moments later I think Ive stumbled into a lost cave of of some forgotten The Residents album...
but Metal Preyers is also like none of these, it's a deeply enthralling uniqueness. lights off, headphones on! Favorite track: The Caller.
PannionSeer thumbnail
PannionSeer Using sludgy bass synths, eerie samples and abrasive, noisy, tribal riddims, Metal Preyers creates a dark, humid atmosphere that feels laced with an undercurrent of violence and danger. Listening to this feels like riding shotgun with a Ugandan drug lord collecting debts in the dead of night. Favorite track: Slither Dripper.

Mag nyege nyege releases are pretty much buy on sight, but this is particularly good. Favorite track: The Caller.

‘Snake spit defenders , slither drippers , screwed metallic preyers , helicopter drums , pulsing incinerator sounds .’

London producer Jesse Hackett ( Ennanga Vision / Owiny Sigoma band) and Chicago based artist Mariano Chavez team up with Nyege Nyege Tapes for NNT18 music and art collaboration METAL PREYERS . Hackett and Chavez have been working together for two years on their audio visual project Teeth Agency. Together a plan was conceived to invite London underground music veteran Lord Tusk to Nyege Nyege’s head quarters Uganda to work on the project Metal Preyers .

Metal Preyers turned into six weeks of music , art making, directing night shoots, and gin fueled hell rides into the Kampala night world. Hackett had dreamt of making an industrial / ambient film sound track to accompany the collection of Mariano’s striking visuals and pairing it with Lord Tusks tough sound system sensibilities.

Featuring an all start cast of Ugandan musicians including Acholi singing star Otim Alpha, multi instrumentalist Lawrence Okello and drummer Omutaba . Slow chopped screwed slabs of sound, fast paced to oozing sludge the LP moves between syncopation's with a cut and paste type feel that nods to DIY cassette tape post punk-ism era and machine-esqe drone ambience.
