FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Industrial Music Project x.a.o.s Releases New Video Volley In Current Culture War
Melbourne-based industrial music project x.a.o.s has just released a new video for the song “Big Daddy”, which appears on their most recent album, “Algea”. This video is available for viewing on YouTube.
The Not-Safe-For-Work cartoon features deliberately childish and crude (in more than one sense of the word) animation that explores the sexual sublimation and hypocrisy of christian beliefs and practices. This is at a time when Australia wraps up a years-long Royal Commission into child sexual abuse, including attention paid specifically to the Catholic Church, whose top-ranking Australian official has been recalled from Rome to face charges of the same. A recent academic study decries the Australian Church's demonstrated lack of ability to safeguard those children in its care. Meanwhile, a highly divisive, government-sanctioned public survey on the subject of same-sex marriage is resulting in vocal opposition by some to potential policy change and its imagined ramifications as being somehow immoral on religious grounds. Recognition of the underlying sexual phobias and repression that inform such an organised religion is perhaps germane.
The x.a.o.s album “Algea” (referred to by the Brutal Resonance music magazine in their review as “madly genius”) can be found at bandcamp as a limited edition physical release wrapped in butcher paper and twine, and also online at iTunes and wherever digital music is streamed or sold.
