Brutal Calling cover art


Format: LP

Release date: january 19th 2007

BILL LASWELL and SUBMERGED deliver an angry reaction to the attacks of 9/11.

The first collaboration of legendary producer & bass player Bill Laswell (Material, Praxis, Painkiller and countless many more projects) and drum&bass-producer Submerged (OHM Resistance) brings together the mighty bass of Laswell in all his virtuoso aspects and the nervous breakcore-patterns of Submerged. This angry and aggressive album was conceived as reaction tthe terror attacks of 9/11 what explains the dark atmosphere on the album, which is perfectly reflected by the new artwork for the vinyl created by longtime Laswellian John Brown.

Originally released 2004 on John Zorn´s AVANT-label in Japan only, this vinyl-only release is limited to 1,000 LPs worldwide.
