    Axebreaker is a new left leaning power electronics project with prior releases on Jouissance Du Rien, Anathemata Editions and Primal Architecture Records.

    Svbterranean recently wrote a review of Brutality of Stone. Here is a section of the review:

    "Helmed by Baltimore musician Terence Hannum (Locrian, The Holy Circle, et al), Axebreaker‘s particular brand of power electronics is scathing, confrontational, and is only accentuated by its anti-fascist/anti-racist themes. Axebreaker pushes listeners’ faces into its white-hot flames until the skin has melted away from the skull. Listeners who dare to align themselves with the very ideologies Axebreaker vows to eradicate might as well throw in the towel early because it won’t end well for them.
    Gusts of caustic noise open up the record on “Disorder (for Alan Berg)” and bleeds directly into the pummeling, ear-splitting “Ghost Skins”. The track thunders with oscillating drones and walls of hissing sound, which are accompanied by Hannum’s fierce, reverberated shrieks. A twisted sense of melody begins to appear as the song reaches its conclusion, providing a bright, yet buried contrast to the sonic hell above."

New Nobility 05:33
CONTAMINATED. BLOOD AND SOIL, WITHOUT NOBILITY JUST A PHANTASM OF A LIE, HAUNTING EVERYTHING. WITHOUT HONOR, JUST A SPECTRE, OF ALL THE WAYS YOU LOST. THE ENORMITY OF WASTE. WITHOUT MEANING. AN ASH IN THE DUSTBIN OF TIME. SOMETHING TO CLING TO, SOMETHING TO CLING TO. LANDLESS, MEANDERING IN A HABITAT OF WASTE. RETURN TO THE LAND, RETURN TO THE LAND OF SHIT, THE LAND OF TOIL YOU’VE NEVER KNOWN. LIVING SPACE AMIDST THE RUINS. DESIRE YOUR DESIRES. WITHOUT A MEANING, ONLY FEAR. ETERNAL THREAT INTO ETERNAL FEAR. IRREVOCABLE, ILLOGICAL, YOU WILL BE REPLACED. YOU ARE ALREADY VANISHING FROM THIS EARTH. SOILED BLOOD.

Murrah 07:20
NO ONE MOURNS YOU. YOUR WAR DID NOT COME.YOUR WAR WILL NEVER COME. YOU WERE TRAINED TO VALUE POWER, EVEN A POWER YOU FEARED, THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER LONG TO RETAIN THEIR POWER,LONG TO PUT PEOPLE IN THEIR PLACE. THOSE WHO WANT POWER CANNOT CRAFT A SYSTEM OUTSIDE THE ONE THEY KNOW. THIS WAS THE EVERDAY DAY TO DAY, GONE IN AN INSTANT, ERASED ARCHITECTURE INTO A CRATER OF CONCRETE AND BLOOD. DOMESTIC, TYRANNY OF DEATH. A LOOP OF YOUR EXECUTION LOOPS OVER AND OVER, ATTENDED BY THOSE WHO ONLY WISH TO DO THE JOB THEMSELVES, BETRAYER, TRAITOR, DIE LIKE A COWARD.
8.
IN THE SHADOWS OF ILLEGIBLE MONUMENTS, ENDLESS REPETITION FILLS EVERY VOID, SUFFOCATES ANY LIGHT, AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE, EVERY SPACE IS FILLED. WITH DEDICATIONS TO THIS MOMENT OF CRISIS. WITH DEDICATIONS TO PERMANENT CRISIS. WITH DEDICATIONS TO INEVITABLE CRISIS. WITH DEDICATIONS TO THE END OF HISTORY. WITH DEDICATIONS TO THE END OF MEMORY. TO ETERNAL STATES OF EMERGENCY, TO INFINITE STATES OF TERROR. AND WE LOOK ON SUSPENDED IN THIS TRANCE OF MYTH, UNABLE TO BREAK FREE, UNABLE TO BREAK AWAY. UNAWARE OF OUR COMPLICITY. UNAWARE OF OUR STUPOR. STUNNED. SHOCKED. NUMB. FOR THIS IS POWER, THIS IS ENDLESS POWER. BUT THIS IS NOT THE END. THIS IS NOT THE END.

about

Phage Tapes / PT-263 CD

"Brutality in Stone is a record that rages from beginning to end and uses aggression to create questions and form answers as to why the world is currently standing on a knife’s edge." - Scene Point Blank

"Brutality in Stone is a dark and foreboding record that takes plenty of surprising turns. Listeners who enjoy being decimated by noise, take note. Listeners who own MAGA hats, good luck surviving." - Svbterranean

"The album name refers to the 11-minute documentary film by Alexander Kluge & Peter Schamoni of the same name, a film that parallels the design and scale of Nazi architecture with national socialist ideology. Axebreaker’s political bent is overt, clearly critical of power electronics, a subgenre that historically can be almost hilariously apolitical about atrocities like genocide, sexual violence, and race-based lynchings." - Ears to Feed
