Violence/Vacuity is the 3rd full length release by Rose Red Flechette. Exploring new sonic territory and instrumentation, Violence/Vacuity at once maintains the jagged, tangled psychedelic throbbing and cyber-industrial rawness of previous works while being extreme and experimental even by previous releases’ standards. Clear beats descend into a miasma of distortion and steady rhythms accelerate into the tonal backdrop of the next rhythm. With Rose Red Flechette’s trademark cyberpunk flair, Violence/Vacuity conceptually explores a very simple duality between the near future’s 3rd and 1st world, the reality of the violence in the former and the emptiness of the peace in the latter. It asks of the listener the choices, or lack thereof, that we make between suffering and complacency, between chaos and banality, between true war and false peace.

Mastered by Priapizzm at Anomalistic Studios with artwork by Nullmenge.
