Introducing Marital Vows, the new project from Passed Loves operator Daniel Stolarski.
Inspired by growing up fascinated with the angst-ridden nihilism and contradictory upbeat machine rhythms of EBM/industrial rock, the almost-too-honest project is not easy to define in terms of genre. Marital Vows collages the testosterone-fueled minimalism of Nitzer Ebb and Front 242, the post-punk-pop sensibilities of The Talking Heads and The Normal, and the noise-drenched gothika and doom behind Godflesh and Broken-era NIN yet births a new beast from many years of an ever-expanding musical nomenclature, breaking down the restrictions and boundaries of influence.
"Hell Is Real" appears on the project’s debut cassette tape, which will be available at the second Passed Loves/Something Cold night (TBA Fall 2013), where Marital Vows will also debut live.

Supporting Roles’ full length debut, the Cronenbergian body horror-inspired 2xCS entitled Dysmorphia.
Roughly an hour’s worth of material recorded straight to tape, Dysmorphia is as painstakingly dynamic as it is authentic, and is a true push forward for the Supporting Roles project. The traditional nomenclature of feedback driven treble, destroyed vocals, and apocalyptic rumbles still exists, yet engulfs an extended palette of both analog and digital synthesizers resulting in a soundtrack for one’s own anatomical anxieties.
Fusing influences of industrial, dark ambient, modern classical, and musique concrète, each side takes you further down the abyss until you’d wish you’d hit the bottom.
Undisclosed limited quantity. Hand-assembled 5” reel boxes housing one black and one white C32 in a sealed bag. (First edition sold out. Second edition coming soon.)
This digital version has been ripped directly from the original to-tape recordings, being the first time they have touched a computer during their entire process of creation.
"Starts off very fuzzy, a dissonant sort of mix between punk and hardcore, this demo is quick to start, but this changes as a couple of longer song more indicative of asymmetric noise rock, heavily incorporating jarring chords and distant, simplistic shouts of indiscernible words. This is a mix of noisy punk music to the tune of a skramzy style singer, or perhaps an entity completely disconnected from the music altogether- despite this, there seems to be a small rhythm to it anyways. There isn’t anyone around here really doing this style right now, so this demo has the opportunity to really take off. Though it’s classic 80s hardcore and skramzy noise mixed together, a marriage often failing, it does work decently well here. Weird music for an even weirder subculture. Enjoyable, though I’d like to see the band head in one particular direction or another with their sound, since there isn’t really a contingent style throughout- it’s either blown-out, lengthy noise rock, or fast, dissonant hardcore punk, with very little grey area.
