Blanck Mass is a British electronic solo project by Benjamin John Power, one of the founding members of drone band Fuck Buttons.
The latest album Animated Violence Mild comes along with a press release:
“In this post-industrial, post-enlightenment religion of ourselves, we have manifested a serpent of consumerism which now coils back upon us. It seduces us with our own bait as we betray the better instincts of our nature and the future of our own world. We throw ourselves out of our own garden. We poison ourselves to the edges of an endless sleep.
I’ve been listening to Massive Attack since the release of Blue Lines in 1991. I recall it was one of the few non-classical CDs in my father’s collection, and Mezzanine appeared in there as well upon its release in 1998. I have favorites from all albums, but this one may be a bit more obscure to the casual fan. It originally appeared on the soundtrack EP to the 2005 film Bullet Boy.
