Kompress - "Cosmic Rite / Ecocidal Greed" (2013)

KØMPRE$$ "Cosmic Rite / Ecocidal Greed"

Year: 2013
Genre: Blackened Crust, Raw Black Metal
Country: UK

Here's a very basic one-track demo from a Birmingham-based duo, whose founder has been reading my blog for about a year by now. This ten-minute track was recorded in one take in their practice room, and is intended as a part of a trilogy of songs exploring capitalism's war on the Earth. The lyrics are written from the pan-left/ecological perspective (however, if you are interested in songwriter's exact ideology - he's a member of SWP-UK).

"Musically I'm not really concerned with genre- I just take the bits of metal I like and leave out those I don't!..  This is a conceptual track about watching the destruction of the Earth by an asteroid from the vantage point of the surface of the Moon. Needless to say, it's not the most optimistic of ditties, but the intention was to use this perspective as a vehicle for Deep Ecological motifs and commentary on the needless destruction of our planet..."
