Formed in the autumn 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, sampling, keyboards and voice. The duo’s Scourge of Woman full-length, released last fall via Scry Recordings, draws inspiration from death industrial and black noise acts like Pig Heart Transplant, Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, Sutekh Hexen, Throbbing Gristle, as well as artists like Onielar, Diamanda Galas, and Cosey Fanni Tutti. The album features the artwork of Seattle by-way-of Bay Area visual artist Anima Nocturna (Carlos Melgoza) in collaboration with Joy Von Spain.
Captured at Stop/Start Studio in Portland, Oregon and Khaos Studio in Seattle, Washington, Scourge of Woman is available in digital and vinyl formats at THIS LOCATION.

One of the Pacific Northwest’s hidden societies, GEIST & THE SACRED ENSEMBLE forge a doom-inflected folk ritualism; dirges tinged with Eastern psychedelia and meandering meditative trances. For the last several years, the group has shown the Washington state underground a clear vision for their sound and lyrics – creating a shamanistic space for the listener, placing them into a trance, then building up the excitement. The overarching theme of their lyrical work is that of an idealist, a yearning for an end to the modern human condition, for destruction of the constructs & constraints of oppression. The group has appeared many times at Thirst For Light and on Hollow Earth Radio.
GEIST & THE SACRED ENSEMBLE bring their hypnotic and emotionally-charged live show to a wider audience this spring with a west coast tour. For this occasion, on March 31st, Scry Recordings is releasing Dig In Sessions: III, a cassette with two musical hypnosis sessions from the vault, recorded by the group and mastered by MS Waldron (Nurse With Wound, irr.app.ext).
Issues the band, “What is that, you ask? Over the years (2012-present) we have recorded most of our practices. Sometimes, practice turns into improvised playing and listening which we call ‘digs.’ We say ‘digs’ because whether you’re digging a hole or creating music in the moment, it is the terrain that dictates the approach. The dig could become a foundation for something bigger than itself or covered up and forgotten. We want to share a side of our sound that you may not always hear.”
Excerpts from the tape which was mastered by Mastered by MS Waldron can be heard at GEIST & THE SACRED ENSEMBLE’s official bandcamp page here: geistthesacredensemble.bandcamp.com.
