Product Description

12 tracks, 48 minutes. First release from Southern imprint Truth Cult is a collaborative album between Porn and Merzbow which blends seamlessly to create a beast of no equal.  Deluxe gatefold sleeve. Pressed on brown or limited edition (315 copies) green vinyl.
 
TRUTH CULT is a brand new imprint lovingly curated by Southern Records. We aim to illuminate some novices worthy of discovery, unearth archive recordings that criminally have been left fallow and to arrange some beautiful collaborations and unique projects for your consideration. Art and packaging will be paramount to the label, as we strive to reinforce the tangible relationship between music and artefact. The cult of truth is the celebration of revelation and recognition. The only common thread will be the uncommonness of our miscellany. The only criteria will be the desire to see what otherwise might remain obscured.
 
Truth Cult's first release is a split album between PORN (formerly known as Men Of Porn) and Merzbow. PORN is the demented child of one Tim Moss. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Moss fronted the cult band Ritual Device, forging links with the West Coast with the patronage of Frank Kozik's Man's Ruin Records. Eventually Moss moved out to the Bay Area where Men Of Porn was born. In the stellar company of Melvins' stalwart Dale Crover (on drums) and omnipresent uber-producer Billy Anderson (on bass), this is a 'Power Trio' in the truest sense of the phrase. Since 1999, they have released three albums and toured the world as the de facto Melvins' support band, thanks to Tim Moss's day job as the band's tour manager.
 
For their newest album, and the nascent release on Southern's brand new imprint Truth Cult, the intrepid low-end experimenters enlist the help of Japanese noise demigod Masami Akita (aka Merzbow). Collaborating across the album's twelve tracks, the fearless Masami layers scree and grafts gristle onto their already dense muscular creations - this is a marriage made in Blake's Heaven & Hell; their two uniquely singular approaches blending seamlessly to create a portentous hybrid beast of no equal.
 
Packed in a deluxe reverse-board gate-fold CD wallet, and vinyl is available in gate-fold sleeve.
