nowHere "For The Glory of Nothing"
Our friends of Ukhan Records send us another mint playlist at this time created by another of their production, For The Glory of Nothing is a dark ambient electronic project based in Catania (Italy). Their first EP "Garmonbozia" was released in Sept 2021.
"It seems that a thin red red red line binds events and phenomenons apparently not bound to each other; subterranean connections typifying paranoid constructs of alienated conspiracists and some historical facts that are marked as truth only after centuries, with no more risk of being considered fool just for the fact of whispering about it."
Based on this necessary premise, the purpose of For The Glory of Nothing's EP Garmonbozia is to tell us that a strong relationship stands between the first nuclear tests in the American desert, the dark ritual of Sexual Magic pursued by Alaister Crowley, Roy Hubbard, and Jack Parsons from Ordo Templis Orientis, the opening of dimensional gates, several ritual murders who feed the modern press (some of them happened in the moonless evenings of the Tuscanian countrysides) and UFO phenomena as subtle events of demonic nature, as per the "interdimensional hypothesis" of Vallée, Hynek, and Keel.
For the Glory Of Nothing are not alone in believing in this apparent madness, as Lynch's Twin Peaks universe seems to refer to the same strong bindings. The purpose of all this is given by the artist itself: "It happens that men divided from their souls secrete the favorite nourishment to the lords of the infrahuman abysses. They know all the secrets of the matter; in an era where every contact with the First Light is cut, unbearable vertigo eases men to trade with filthy beings.
The playlist is a great mix of dark, industrial, and minimal electronic vibes. It's perfectly mirroring the band influences and we truly enjoyed listening to it while preparing the post.
