Vatican Shadow releases six-tape box set Death Is Unity With God

Bumper cassette bundle from the mind of Dominick Fernow.

Earlier this year Vatican Shadow released a box set of six cassettes taking in damaged techno, deep meditations, Muslimgauze-esque atmospheres and similarly warped and gloomy moods, all apparently inspired by militarism, fundamentalism and terrorism in the US and abroad.

The tapes in the Death Is Unity With God collection include the bleak Elohim City, which makes reference to the Oklahoma City bombing, the gunshot-addled Oklahoma Military Academy, the oppressive drums and drones of Fireball, the rusty techno of Easing Of Our Task, more scorched rhythms on Enduring Mysteries and clouded synths on April Silencer.

The box set is limited to a measly 100 copies available throughout Fernow’s summer tour, but each of the tapes is available digitally in MP3 or FLAC format. Have a listen via Boomkat.
