    It's out! Tonal 2: Give It Time, It Will Go Slower. marks a "transition point" of sorts for TS, as it blends the usual noise walls you know and love with wicked tonal explorations that one could only describe as "anti-ambient". Oh, and did I mention it's two hours long? Like any self-respecting sequel, it's louder, more bloated and turns everything that was good about Tonal? into a mushy, incoherent mess. I'd like to once again thank @eversonpoe , who enjoyed Tonal? and inspired me to make an album-length expansion of that idea.

    Enjoy! I'm still thinking of crazy ways to spice up the Torture Sauce recipe. Future installments may leave noise-heads scratching their heads, but, I can assure you, they're gonna sting!

    And now for something different! While not quite as ethereal as the last After the Pulse single, Leap, this 52 minute, uh... "album-ingle" is a much lighter listen than the sonic onslaught of Torture Sauce. I wanted to make something that sounds like how the coronavirus has changed our perception of the world around us.

    Bandcamp just e-mailed me to inform me about my new album. My sides.

    https://torturesauce.bandcamp.com/al...ths-to-the-sky

    Originally a single thing (the self-titled second track) that evolved into a "maybe i'll just whip up six more tracks" thing and, gradually, into a gargantuan almost-three-hours-long thing. This is one of my deeper blends of dark ambient and noise; I'd like to describe its sound as "low noise"*, as the noise is not harsh or brittle, but mostly rumbling and thunderous. Your subwoofers should get a good workout out of this album.

    Ever since I resurrected Torture Sauce in 2019, I've released a healthy amount of material including countless HNW explorations and the occasional foray into dark ambient and drone. I have yet to make the left-turn TS album that I've promised that will make everyone go "WTF", but one thing is for sure: "Mouths to the Sky" is the most fun I've had making a TS release so far, and it helped me squash any last remaining fears and doubts I've ever had about sound design (including, of course, sound mangling). Seriously, whatever it is that I'm doing, I feel like I've mastered it. I have tons of crazy music plans going forward, involving TS, After the Pulse and S33-Th1s (my digital hardcore thing which also features glitched-out vocals by me, but so far only has a few released demos and tons of unfinished songs under its name). I really hope you enjoy it.

    Shout out to @reseen_lamenti (brilliant new username, by the way!)! Without your inspiration and support, Torture Sauce wouldn't have existed. And no, I still haven't played Yume Nikki. I'm too scared.

    *I'll admit that "low noise" is a subtle jab at a Greek hip-hop subgenre called "low bap", which was essentially a slower form of conscious rap. Coincidentally, the group that created the style is called Active Member, which is how ETS likes to call me. You can also call it "brown noise" if you want; poop jokes are always welcome in the Torture Sauce canon.

    People have started to send me stuff! Below is a repeat of the post in the MM thread (oh, and the artwork still needs some work):

    I am making a track-for-track parody of Antichrist Superstar for charity and I would like your help. I will recreate all songs from the album... but I will replace everything with cat sounds. Of course, this is inspired by Meow the Jewels, but, in this case, even the vocals will be replaced by pure feline excellence. I will make a Bandcamp specifically for the parody and all proceeds from it will go to RAINN.

    How you can help (preferrably via PM):
    1) If you have a cat, please send me recordings of it! Meows, purrs, screeches, any sound your cat makes will be useful. It doesn't have to be a perfect recording; even if all you have is a phone, you can use it! I recommend Dolby On, a free app for iOS and Android which can turn recordings from even the crappiest phone mic into professional-sounding greatness.

    2) I'd also like to hear your suggestions on track titles with cat puns, e.g. "Irresponsible Hate Anthem" -> "Irrespurrsible Hairy Catthem". If you have puns for the whole track list, send it in and I will cherry-pick my favorites.

    Every contributor will get a special thanks mention in the Bandcamp description!

    Thank you!

    My submission for the Metapop "Produce This #91" scoring contest, where I scored a clip from a German fantasy movie called Die Krone von Arkus (The Malevolent Queen). Here's my Metapop entry link. Wish me luck, peeps!

    Torture Sauce - esque

    I had so much fun making this one, so I HAD to release it. Also, I submitted an exclusive Torture Sauce track to a compilation which will be out on September 1st. More details later; watch this space!

    Torture Sauce - Swells

    Surprise! A new TS track. This one leans more into HNW territory, though its tone is slightly deeper and more robust than you'd expect; in fact, it's one of my favorite sonic textures that I've made. And it was a complete accident! I'm working on my first-ever sample pack (coming soon!) and I felt like taking a break from an intense sound design session... by making more sound design, albeit this time without a plan in mind. I loved the result so much that I gave it some super-hot brickwall mastering, et voilą!
