Pharmakon releases her primal scream on 'Body Betrays Itself'

A shriek is more unnerving when it seems to come from a distance, because you can't tell which circle of hell spit it out. On "Body Betrays Itself," a teaser for Pharmakon's upcoming Bestial Burden (as well as today's 12 O'Clock Track), Margaret Chardiet's faraway screams are primal and otherworldly, simultaneously seeming to lure and banish whatever evil waits on the other side. The track is a volatile mix of pulsing thunderous booms and ominous, subterranean buzzes, and it comments on the "disconnect between mind and body," as Chardiet puts it. It's less harsh noise than cuts from her previous full-length, Abandon, but absolutely no less menacing. Bestial Burden is being released October 14 via Sacred Bones.
