To End It All

In November of 2016, long-time collaborators noise artist Masaaki Masao and vocalist Joy Von Spain began to create new work as TO END IT ALL. Forging songs from rhythmic harsh noise, avant-garde samples, and voice, the duo explore themes of emotion and destruction.

To End It All’s spirit tree: The Boswellia. Deep in the heart of a dry place exists a certain tree. Branches of odd beauty grow out from something ominous and overshadowing. At the base of this organic structure the ritualistic denouncing of vile forms can be heard, marking a descent into the scornful damning of plagued souls.

These words loom heavy above the troubled rumble of claustrophobic power electronics dirges which are the blackened roots of this hardened mass. Recalls Plague Mass-era Diamanda Galas by way of industrial doom as if a conduit for agony and disgust. The wretched are cursed and spat upon. The end result is something assaulting and confrontational punctuated by moments of lulling sonic solitude.

This is the music of troubled land; a desolate soundscape where damned souls are banished.

In November of 2016, long-time collaborators noise artist Masaaki Masao and vocalist Joy Von Spain began to create new work as TO END IT ALL, forging songs from rhythmic harsh noise, avant-garde samples, and voice.

TO END IT ALL draws inspiration from death industrial and black noise acts like Pig Heart Transplant, Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, Goly Grim, Sutekh Hexen, Throbbing Gristle, as well as vocalists Onielar, Diamanda Galas, Kathy Berberian, and Cosey Fanny Tutti. Building upon their previous incarnation, 100PIECES (2007-2010), Masao and Von Spain make stripped-down songs using performance and composition techniques distilled from their other projects (Mongrel Gods, Microscopic Suffering, Eye of Nix, Caligula Cartel)
