The middle finger is up. Everything is a joke. Exhausted by everything. Not listening to you anymore.
On and on. On and on. Forever. Their promises mean zero.
It's definitely something else.
If they tell you it's one thing.
Don't get me started on the religious idiots!
Escape from your daily grave routine.
'Great' Britain is a fucking dying island.
They will take every remaining crumb from your existence.
Stick them in the freezer Watch them slowly.burn
Seering Seething Poisonous Vicious Relentless Reptiles of death.
Hide in your hole, but only to recharge. Come out fresh and change what's needed.
The last remnants of human energy can still be enough to make a difference.
If you follow the existence they plotted for you There is no happy ending. There is only torture and sadness Deceit, lies, struggles then death. This is your last chance to leave all that behind.
Screaming only on the inside Hurts no-one but yourself Don't be silenced.
Strangehold 03:26
Screaming only on the inside Hurts no-one but yourself Don't be silenced.


Available on limited CD as part of an 66 minute long noise collection made up of this and 3 other releases, plus a bonus 10 minute track.

The Owl - Voice, pedals, laptop.

Original sounds constructed then obliterated several times between 2015 and 2019, then hit with sledgehammers, put into a blender and re-assembled in October 2020.

Skipping through all the styles and various colours of noise.
Ambient, cut up, harsh, walls, static, low end grindings, collage, glitch.

Motivated by political and social oppression, biased towards things in the UK at the moment, because that's where I am, but, it is seeming reflective of things on a more global scale for the most part.

I'm in utter disbelief of the absolute vindictive evil that is going on in this world, and by those who have been allowed to climb the ranks of power because people cower for no reason against them, and even more in disbelief and how much of it is allowed to happen by apathetic people.

Overthrow, revolt! Do not accept this anymore! There are pockets of resistance and goodness everywhere. These need to grow exponentially and rapidly!

2-12 were originally made from one piece of noise made in 2015, so there are occasional similarities in the background theme of some of those tracks (for those who know how to look inside this sort of stuff!). All the collage and extreme pitch work was done recently, the first and the last 3 songs were made from scratch this month also.

Stay to the end for one of my favourite loops, that requires the rest to make it even more effective.
