Cody Ariel It's a much appreciated surprise right now to find noise that is this, well, Life-affirming. Favorite track: Life.

Dilaremeo LIFE is a moving collage of people defining life for the first hour: looped, echoed, and layered - interesting and compelling. The second hour - AFTERLIFE - decomposes all the cells in your body before nature has a chance to - torrential teeth-chattering vibrations. Favorite track: Afterlife.

Life was made with 21 hours of manipulated samples played via BASTL Microgranny and 3 hours of tape loops real time recorded into a Fostex MA-8. Synths were sequenced with Schism Tracker and everything was arranged in Audacity. Side A incorporates a sample from the movie "The Passing" directed by John Huckert, 1983. All other vocal samples submitted by those thanked below.

A Black Ring Rituals Records release made in Fargo in the first year of the plague, 2020. Thanks to Brandon Wald for putting it out, Life would be nothing without you :^]
