Sadistic Lingam Cult – Triumph of the will CD:


Cult 90’s supernatural Eastern horror! Tokyo’s Sadistic Lingam Cult existed pretty much entirely dislocated from the Noise scene & were highly active during the mid to late 90’s on hyper obscure cassette labels often with even further hyper obscure one-shot bands. Their material varied massively in quality between releases, but this reissue (with bonus tracks) of Triumph Of The Will remains the strongest opus from the group. They are without question one of the most original Noise bands of all time, with their own highly signaturized & indelible “Oriental Black Arts/Black-Noise” which embodies a unique nightmare kaleidoscope of exotic distortions, drugged & inebriated hallucinations & malign conjuring, ritualism, deification, occultism & supernaturalism from abstruse & arcane Far Eastern mythology through purely analogue equipment. Hugely varied & vast, the CD details horrific possession/mass haunting by screaming phantoms & demonic beings churning through a nebulous fevered delirium of arcane Oriental occultism & murderous coven-hood. The album comes with a giant nine panel fold-out sleeve with meticulously detailed original うきよえ-themed full colour artwork from Minzo Shiroma. 21 tracks in 74 minutes, all re-mastered from the original master tapes by mad-man Terrorist Kriss! X1000 copies. £10.

Sadistic Lingam Cult



Psychosexual anthrophobic genocidal Black Noise (no relation to Black Metal whatsoever) obsessing with far Eastern cultus, & a pantheon of recondite Buddhist/Hindu & regional Oriental superstition, paranormal divination ancient Sanskrit vestiges & Black Magic. Very’ very dark & malignant stuff, the bands sound is totally unique within the Noise strata, (nothing else even a little like it) deeply psychedelic, somnific & horrific, not so much harsh as an absolute overload of distortion, echo & reverb & bizarre cyber modulation & sound molestation through a series of very unfamiliar & as of yet unconfirmed analogue gadgets & contraptions (all from the early & mid 90’s when the band was active).  Even within the Noise ambit, SLC are very unorthodox, the closest relative probably being Death Industrial & perhaps Power Elecronics but neither can be adequately attributed, the band is without peer or parallel. Malefic, lubricious & profoundly ritualistic this phantom eldritch of heaving hallucination existed on the utmost underground during the mid 90’s encapsulated mostly on split cassettes with very obscure Noisecore bands. The sadism, gynophobia, imperialist Japanese ideology & phallocentric madness clash & are totally ill consonant with the the LOD ethic, but for noise quality & as one of the most individualistic, exotic & pronounced Noise experience available SLC augment the Jigokuki prepotency perfectly
