Gwynplaine de Pétroleuse
Waves and waves of decrepit Noise Rock drones, and dark electronic crackles and noisy foundations. A morbid and horrifying release littered with laughter and distorted vocals. Sheer sonic exploration, and not a release to be missed.
Favorite track: Side B.
Weeping Icon presents “Ritual Wasteland”, a 14 minute lathe of heavy experimental noise and zine, exploring the ritual of social media and its impact on our perception of personal success. At the center of this inverted reality is the weeping icon, crying for the voices muted out in the vacuous chorus of lifestyle product sales. She begs us to reflect on what is lost when we blur the lines between individual expression and brand identity.

"Intense, devoted, purposeful and persevering. Likes everything that is strong and powerful, adores hot water. Hates being exposed or overpowered.
The Moon feels uncomfortable in Scorpio because the intensity and the permanent inner struggle of this sign contradict the Moon's idea of comfortable life. The Moon in Scorpio individuals are often overfilled with difficult, powerful emotions, and it may be difficult for them to recognize that the source of these emotions is inside of themselves. They might paint into dark colours the surrounding world, become bitter, revengeful or aggressive. They might choose to fill their life with conspiracy or select such a lifestyle that they are seldom seen in public.
The limitless energy of Scorpio, when being revealed through lunar functions, makes people insatiable in one or another respect. Some of them can have a passion towards food, others towards sex, or money, or work, or power, or drugs, or anything else. If the Moon in Scorpio individuals have decided to pursue some goal, it can be difficult for them to stop until they hitsome external limits. Such a lifestyle can be rather destructive for their health, and sexual functions and organs might be the most vulnerable."
