GNAW THEIR TONGUES (Drachten, NED)
Gnaw Their Tongues is a one-man experimental/ drone/ noise/ black metal act formed in 2005 by Mories.
Maurice “Mories” de Jong established Gnaw Their Tongues, originally conceived as Dimlit Hate Cellar, as a new outlet for his music in 2004. Previously, de Jong had been active musically since 1988 and composing music under several aliases since the early nineties. Gnaw Their Tongues’ full-length debut, titled Spit at Me and Wreak Havoc on My Flesh, was independently released in January 2006. The album comprised seven lengthy drone pieces which drew inspiration from black metal and utilized sampling. Immediately de Jong began issuing multiple albums within months of each other, establishing himself as a prolific composer and musician.
Gnaw Their Tongues creates dark and eerie droning soundscapes with multible layers of sounds and samples, tortured vocals and bizarre lyrics about bondage, torture and other controversial subjects.
