Jealous God welcome Collin Gorman Weiland to their fetid fold for Issue Nº Twenty-One, a six-track EP of grim, distended industrial slugs in the vein of his 7”s for Downwards and a tape for Downwards North America.
Working hard in the red with earwax-crumbling levels of distortion and sinuous, wiry rhythms, this is some of the grimmest tackle on the label, spitting up crankiest highlights in the bellicose swagger of My Pathetic Words, and the cyberpunk trampler Everyone Wears Chipping Paint, but also saving some more conventional EBM/industrial thrust with the salty jakker She Is Wearing A Red Dress, and the Silent Servant-on-quaaludes pressure of A Section of Touch, and a cannily atmospheric finale featuring Sophia Deutsch on cello in Wondering Windows.
