Navicon Torture Technologies, a highly prolific
industrial-music project originated by
Leech (Lee Bartow), churned out facile noise symphonies such as
Power Romance (2001),
I Fucking Hate You All And I Hope You All Fucking Die (2001),
Scenes From The Next Millennium (2001),
The Church Of Dead Girls (2002),
Dripping With The Power Of Her Flesh (2003),
All I Want To Hear Is The Sound Of My Own Heart Stopping (2004),
Pure Skin (2006),
The Gospels Of The Gash (2009).
Leech also contribute a 20-minute untitled piece to a split
with Thou, We Pass Like Night From Land To Land (Gilead Media, 2010).
Then Leech launched the much more creative project Theologian with
The Further I Get From Your Star, The Less Light I Feel On My Face (Crucial Blast, 2010), an experiment in gothic ambient music that contains
the 24-minute In Times Of Need We All Go Against Our Natures.
The project continued with
The Chasms Of My Heart (Crucial Blast, 2012), a more austere collection
that includes the
14-minute droning muezzin-invoked Dante-esque overture Abandon All Hope,
the aggressive syncopated industrial dance We Can't All Be Victims,
the 13-minute ambient trance of Every Road Leads To Abandonment,
the pseudo-techno vision of The Chasms Of My Heart,
massive eleven-minute circular drones turning into hyper-distorted tribal dance of My Body Is Made Of Ash I Live As Ash, like vintage Chrome jamming with prehistoric cannibals while being skinned alive.
The EP Finding Comfort In Overwhelming Negativity (Handmade Birds, 2012)
adds at least two impressive achievements: the
eleven-minute All I See is You, a relentless organic vibration, a sort of faster more feeble Suicide (unfortunately
sabotaged by a much weaker second half),
and the pounding delirious
Finding Comfort In Overwhelming Negativity, rising to a demonic scream
and a percussive trance comparable to
the Velvet Underground's Sister Ray.
