World Eater Re-Voxed, a digital only release, began as an idea Ben Power, the musician behind the project, had while traveling the globe in support of his critically acclaimed 2017 release World Eater. He contacted some of the most interesting musicians and artists today, and asked them to imbue the tracks with their own sense of meaning.
Power says of the release, ”The theme with this remix EP was to see how a group of other artists visualize and reassess my world sonically and more importantly here, lyrically. The use of human vocals is prominent in my more recent work although I try and steer more towards an emotional language as opposed to conventional syntax, so this was an interesting exercise in interpretation."
The remixes include tracks by Zola Jesus, Naked, M. Lamar and Gazelle Twin.

LIke tman1015, I am a little scared of this album. It is a deeply shocking and accurate musical portrayal of senile dementia -inasmuch as I've (sadly) observed members of friends and family become gradually subsumed by it.
Yet it is captivating, there are many moments of beauty along the way. I cannot stop going back for another listen.
I wonder if anyone (apart from the artist) has managed to listen all the way through in one sitting. I am not even close to managing yet. Simon Woolf
