a quick update on recent Choronzon activity. Get the full story at Choronzon.org, as always.
Two very different compilations, and two very different bits of noise.
To quote monde from the frontpage of choronzon.org
“- Women Take Back The Noise has been released after years of work. You won’t want to miss this. If you’ve been wondering where all the female noise artists have been hiding, the answer is, why they aren’t hiding, they’re here, and proud and loud as much as they are pretty and gritty. This three-disc compilation – with discs for soundscapes-and-ambient-noise, for weird-and-dramatic noise, and for guttural-thrashing-spazz noise, are all included. Choronzon’s “Current” fell upon the second, naturally. It some pretty terrific company on this collection, including Cosey Fanni Tutti. And you can’t beat the packaging on this thing. Have a look and a bite from a “noise cookie”. (They’re actually more like flowers, but not as quiet.)”
This collection is an incredible feat.
In the Acidvictim comp you’ll find some sharp metallic riffage, and git-fuelled agression. There’s a great deal of variety and quality on this compilation. It’s highly worth getting. (And the cover was designed by one P. Emerson…)

You can get a copy from me, as well. Just write to me at chaos333 at gmail dot com, and I’ll get it out to you for fi’dollah. You’d really be helping a honky out here.
Finally, let me leave you with a comission in process. I’m designing the cover for a split release of gore grinders Womb Raiders and the unclassifiable Bury The Pariah.
