"The dark, impossibly intense dirges, industrial noise onslaughts and banshee-like free jazz wailing heard throughout Anguish could be an imposing soundtrack for a dystopian, post-apocalyptic future. This powerhouse, inter-generational offering and RareNoise Records debut brings together an unlikely gathering of members of the New Jersey-based experimental hip-hop group Dälek (electronic musician and vocalist Will Brooks, guitarist-keyboardist Mike Mare), the Swedish free jazz group Fire! Orchestra (tenor saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, drummer Andreas Werliin) and the classic ‘70s German krautrock band Faust (keyboardist and 68-year-old founding member Hans Joachim Irmler).

Recorded by Johannes Buff in just three days during the summer of 2018 at Faust’s Scheer, located in a former factory perched on the banks of the Danube in Swabia, Germany near the Swiss border, Anguish stands as a hard-hitting manifesto for the next evolution in the hip-hop legacy.

Scheduled for a November release on RareNoise Records, Anguish promises to blow minds and provoke thoughts."
