Truculent – Caviling The Facts! And Other Mechanisms Of Oppression (SM055)

Strange Mono is announcing the release of Truculent “Caviling The Facts! And other mechanisms of oppression”.  Blending melodic rhythmic guitar compositions with field recordings and found sounds, Truculent creates atmospheric soundscapes that Intertwine personal reflection with a universal message of resilience and introspection.

Central to Truculent’s ethos is the exploration of duality – the interplay between creation and destruction, light and darkness, fear and courage. Through tracks like “More Than Anything Or Anyone Else” and “Something The Death-Makers Need You To Embrace,” Truculent delves into the complexities of human nature, encouraging listeners to ruminate on their own inner contradictions and embrace the full spectrum of human experience.

“We are receivers of the past and transmitters to the future. Transmission is a choice, but it is also built into our subconscious. In the search for a deeper understanding of yourself, you will find a deeper understanding of others. Seek out the mysteries in yourself to illuminate the mysteries in others.

The homonyms raised and razed are especially interesting to me. They reflect, in no uncertain terms, the duality of human society. Are we meant to be building or destroying? The idea of the martyred saints is so intriguing because; they were subjected to such acts of cruelty that it should reasonably prove that there is no merciful god, but turns instead into supreme evidence of his existence. Accuse your enemy of that which you, yourself are guilty.

Often the more impressive someone appears the more fearful they are inside.

It’s easier to bleed than sweat.”
