On October 14, Margaret Chardiet (better known as Pharmakon) will release her new album, Bestial Burden, on Sacred Bones.
Pharmakon makes menacing, harsh, dense, industrial electro-noise somewhere in the vein of Dominic Farrow's Prurient and Vatican Shadow projects and brutal horror film soundtracks. This is not music for the unprepared. Her latest single, "Body Betrays Itself" is an excellent first dive into the album which was inspired by emergency surgery last fall. Take a listen and be warned.
