Fugue State Records first release Asspanther’s “Eucharism” 7″ Art Object available Friday March 4th @ Wootini Gallery

Posted on Mar 3, 2011

Fugue State Records is proud to announce the release of Asspanther’s
inaugural North American Release, Eucharism on 45 RPM single.
Eucharism will be available exclusively through Wootini Gallery at the
Blood Brothers show in North Carolina starting March 4th – 31st. Fans
of the international Black Metal scene will note that Asspanther has
long been considered the premier Icelandinc Black Metal band. Their
brutal metal onslaught has frightened censors here in the US and their
anti-religious songs “Eucharism” and “Religion is Mind Control’ lash
out at the hypocrisy found in the houses of the holy all around the
world.

Fugue State Records (http://fuguestate.posterous.com) is a fictional
“Extreme Music” record label created by NYC Artist, Abe Lincoln Jr.
He will be using the form factor of the iconic 7″ record to release
singles from the fictional Hardcore and Heavy Metal bands on the Fugue
State label roster. These are NOT real 7″ records with music on them,
they are Design Objects meant to be displayed with the rest of your
Art collection.

He’ll be laser etching various materials to create the records and the
sleeves will be digitally printed. Each release from Fugue State
Records will be limited to no more that 10-50 pcs per colorway. Once a
colorway is done it will not be released again. In support of these
releases I will also be doing other Artist Multiples such as band and
label “merch”. T-shirts, gig posters, stickers & zines, will be
released as the project continues.

The goal with the project is to tell the story of Fugue State Records,
creating a world that has continuity. There will be multiple releases
from the bands on the Fugue State label roster. New bands being signed
and old bands moving on or breaking up. The project is meant to be
ongoing. I plan on doing multiple art shows/record releases and
putting out new Multiples regularly.”

The first release is from Fugue State Records is from Icelandic Black
Metal band, Asspanther. The Eucharism 7-inch contains the “tracks”
Eucharism and backed with Religion is Mind Control.

This edition is laser etched red acrylic plastic, with a digitally
printed sleeve and limited to 20 pieces. It retails for $60 USD and
will be available at Wootini Gallery (http://www.wootinigallery.com)
for the Blood Brothers show with MCA and Evoker from March 4th – 31st.
There is also a 22×30” silkscreen poster on 250gm paper, available for
$40 also limited to 20 pcs. After the opening the Objects will be
