Vampillia - Alchemic Heart - LP
2014 vinyl version now available.
Alchemic Heart is a special project presented by Vampillia who have colored these two colossal compositions with beautiful contributions by members of the Boredoms, Jarboe (ex-Swans), Inswarm and Japanese Noise-God Merzbow. Layered strings, piano, bass, noise and voices are weaved mysteriously and expand as two magnificently parallel aesthetic worlds. Comprised of two pieces, Sea/Land, a primitive landscape is created via listening and destroyed when the pieces are complete.
Vampillia, much like the Boredoms, absorb rock, noise, modern composition, experimental music & pop and explode it out as hardcore spirit music. They hail from Osaka, Japan and are a brutal orchestra with three distinct vocalists backed by twin violins, piano, twin guitars, bass, turntables, Toyohito Yoshikawa on drums as well as Tatsuya Yoshida and Kazuhisa Chikada.
Vampillia have supported a wide variety of artists around the globe including Bernie Worrell, Bill Laswell, Locust, Melt Banana, Jim O'Rourke, No Age, Jackie-O Motherfucker, KTL, Mani Neumeier (Guruguru), Arab Strap, Gang Gang Dance and Boris. To see them live is to experience a thing of evil & beauty. In 2011 they'll be touring Europe with Jarboe & Merzbow.
NOTE: Remaining LP covers have dented corner(s) and/or bends. Price discounted.
