Super snowy Harajuku at 2am on Valentine’s Day night 2014. These are long exposure photos (using a tripod), so you can’t really see the snow falling, but it was snowing pretty hard! These shots are of Takeshita Dori, Harajuku Dori, Cat Street, Meiji Dori & Omotesando Dori.
cavernous stygian ambience drifts as clouds of phosphoric gas through which tribal drums rumble forth to attack. spasms of melody try to escape oil covered waters before sinking under. the cacophony of organic sounds, underpinned by rhythmic pounding illuminates a structure within the chaos, a restructuring of the anatomy under siege by recurrent infestation. yes, there is structure within the perceived chaos. This madness is a systematic retort.
fury 161 is a misanthropic reaction to the ills of this world. the intensive sound combines with the vocals and the lyrical condemnation to engulf the listener in this barrage of maledictions. the dogmatic corruption of society, the delinquency of the corporate agenda, organized religion’s inherent vacancy, the proliferation of mental illness in a world void of sense are all viewed as target. assaulted from all sides fury 161 rejects. fury 161 acts as fundamental resistance, an individual standing firm in the face of the oppressor.
formed in 2013 by corvus rex (of project:void, black crow king, and nde) and xerxees bane (of pigrat), with a view to creating hybrid sound that shares the essential dna of power electronics, death industrial, tribal drumming, black metal, rhythmic industrial, gabba and dark ambient and yet, is a deviation for them, an adaptive mutation of the sound.
with the debut release, armageddons maw, fury 161 unleashes an oppressive assault on the aural senses. a new age of low, dark and heavy is manifesting.
