MOSSENEK Suffers From Divine Indifference

Hey metalheads, do you have a craving for avant-garde music that's heavy, but you find Naked City and Mr. Bungle too commercial and accessible? Are you a fan of Enbilulugugalbut wish their recordings were more lo-fi and stripped down? If so, you're definitely going to want to check out Divine Indifference – the new album from New York's Mossenek.

Mossenek is comprised of avant-garde guitarist Mick Barr (Krallice, Octis, Ocrilim) and sound artist Chuck Bettis. To say the duo's music is challenging is a gross understatement. It's more improvisational noise and yelling than anything else and there's no traditional song structure to be found. Still, if you enjoy this type of thing, you won't be let down.

Divine Indifference is the third entry in a digital trilogy of releases, and Mossenek will be supporting these recordings by touring Japan in June alongside fellow avante-garde weirdos Vampillia and drone cult favorites Nadja. Before the band hit The Land of the Rising Sun, they'll be ripping the Big Apple a new one with a series of dates in May. Below you can find the complete list of live assaults. If you want to purchase these digital albums, they're all available through Mossenek's Bandcamp page.
