released October 7, 2019

CONTROLLED BLEEDING ARE:
PAUL LEMOS - TAPES, VOICE, GUITAR, SEQUENCERS, SYNTHESIZER
CHRIS MORRIARTY - DRUMS, METAL, VOICE, PROGRAMMING
RECORDED THROUGHOUT 1983 AND 1984.
PRODUCTION: CONTROLLED BLEEDING

THE TAPE IS DESIGNED TO BE PLAYED EXTREMELY LOUD WITH FULL BASS AND TREBLE.

THE FIST TRACK ON SIDE ONE IS ENTITLED "THE SPLITTING CELL"
THE SECOND EPIC TRACK IS "A HUMAN INVENTION"

"IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A GOD (IF HE EXISTS) TO CREATE CRUELTY ON SUCH A LEVEL AS THE VERY SUBJECTS HE SUPPOSEDLY CREATED. OR IS THIS STREAK IN THE HUMAN BEING ITSELF A DELIBERATE CRUELTY CONCEIVED BY THE MAKER. WE FIGHT FOR CRUELTY WITH MORE CRUELTY WHICH WE WATCH OR CARRY OUT IN THE DISGUST AND HATRED WHICH WE SO RICHLY DESERVE ABD ENJOY (AND THERE LIES THE **) HATRED IS NOT ONLY THE EASIEST OPTION FOR MOST IT IS THE MOST ENJOYABLE. WE STILL ACT AS A GROUP INTIMIDATING THE INDIVIDUAL IT IS REALLY SO SURPRISING THAT THE INDIVIDUAL FIGHTS BACK IN A MANNER WHICH HISTORY WILL DESCRIBE AS CRUEL AND DISGUSTING. THE HUMAN TEMPER IS FOREVER CLOSE TO BOILING POINT. EACH OF OUR ENEMIES TAKES US ONE DEGREE CLOSER TO THEIR GUILT AND THEIR PUNISHMENT AT OUR HANDS. WHAT GOD COULD CREATE THAT KIND OF JUDGEMENT."

FALSE MORALITY HAS NEVER BEEN ACCEPTABLE TO US AND IS ALL TOO EASILY RECOGNIZABLE;

SIDE TWO BEGINS WITH "THE HERETIC AND THE CHRISTS OF VIOLENCE" TRANSFORMING INTO "CODE OF HONOR" AND "ONLY OBEYED ORDERS"

THE MUSIC IS FRANTIC ANGRY POWERFUL AND DESPERATE. A POSSIBLE SOUNDTRACK FOR A NIHILIST REVOLUTION WHICH CAN ONLY END WITH UNIVERSAL SUICIDE. THIS RACE TO DIVINITY WILL NOT BE WON. THIS RACE SHOULD NEVER HAVE EMBARKED UPON, YOU CAN TALK OF INNOCENCE BUT YOU'LL NEVER JUSTIFY IT. HERE COMES OUR SUCESS AS YOU DROWN IN YOUR MORALITY SPARE A SECOND TO WAVE US GOODBYE AND MAYBE THE COMPLIMENT WILL BE RETURNED. LETS HOPE FOR YOUR SAKE THAT BORN AGAIN IS A LITTLE MORE LITERAL THAN YOU FIRST THOUGHT.

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL.
