The Emperor's Champion 10" release from 8cylinder contains four tracks, one dedicated to each of the four vows that a Black Templar can be bound to. It was originally available on 10" vinyl that was released in hand silkscreened jackets on November 3, 2010. The 10" vinyl was limited to 100 copies and is now sold out. The digital release is still available from Bandcamp at:
Looking back on this release, I'm most happy that we included the cover version of "Rust Belt Noose," written by our longtime friends Kim Phuc, and the "True Cross" remix by 8cylinder, another old friend and visionary working in the dub/breakcore idiom. It's the least blown-out and raw-sounding track of the program; but I'm glad to revisit that quality of the band, present in droves live and during the demo phase, but sometimes lost or downplayed in the studio.
The contents appear here on Bandcamp with four bonus tracks, which are demo recordings from the pre-production of the "Agonal Harvest" LP, a pair of which date to 2006.
The tape release is sold out. The digital release is still available from Bandcamp at:
Immigrant Breast Nest sprung from two people jamming in a Queens, NY furniture factory and has since run a course of mutation which cannot be charted by rational means. No evolution but a kind of arcane septicity. Just as the artists we represent perform impossible vivisections and outlandish experiments within their music, so have we sliced open the idea of the net-label and tinkered with its innards. Immigrant Breast Nest always remains a possibility, a convergence, a nucleus forming out of unrepentant creativity. It's infectious work and the infection is "The Entertainment".
Released on December 3, 2014.
