Keep your pre-conceptions at the door and hold back just for one minute as this isn't your typical Gnaw Their Tongues release. Influenced by Japanese serial child killer Tsutomu Miyazaki and recorded on both analogue and digital synths with a barrage of samples, bass and live percussion, these recordings capture the uneasy and unsettling feeling which convey the horrific story of Miyazaki and his crimes in an explosion of terrifying abstract black noise.

Two of the tracks titles are named after letters which Miyazaki sent to the families of his victims:

To the family of victim Erika Nanba, Miyazaki sent a morbid postcard which had been assembled from words cut out of magazines: "Erika. Cold. Cough. Throat. Rest. Death."

To the family of Miyazakis first victim Mari Konno, he charred her remaining bones in his furnace, ground them into powder and sent them to her family in a box, along with several of her teeth, photos of her clothes and a postcard reading: "Mari. Cremated. Bones. Investigate. Prove."

The third and final track is named after the man himself, 'Tsutomo Miyazaki".

***Second and final pressing limited to 50 hand-numbered copies on red cassette with alternative coloured artwork and packaging***
