ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A haunting brew of dark ambient electronic soundscapes & neo-classical strings with Ned Kirby of Stromkern, Laurie Reade of High Blue Star and Pigface, and Erica Mulkey of Rasputina. Darkwave darling Emilie Autumn providing vocals and violins on one track. All mine enemys whispers (The Story of Mary Ann Cotton) limited first edition of 1000 includes set of 4 reproduction stickers of original victorian poison bottle labels! The first 200 copies of the limited edition sold via Projekt.com will include the booklet autographed by Attrition mastermind Martin Bowes.


A surreal nightmareish journey into the mind of a Victorian serial killer from this darkAmbient pioneer. Mary Ann Cotton was Britain's greatest female mass murderer. Poisoning upwards of 20 of her own children and partenrs with arsenic. She was arrested, tried and hanged in 1873. Attrition's Martin Bowes is a descendant of the arresting officer, Police Sergeant Tom McCutcheon.

Completed on Oct. 31, 2007, this is no ordinary Halloween album; Mary Ann Cotton's story (augmented by the real-life connection between the album's composer and the killer herself) will do a much better job keeping you up at night than any slasher film killer or long-haired Japanese ghost child. The music is a haunting brew of electronic soundscapes, neo-classical strings, and eerie children's voices. Shuffling sounds, anxiously scraped strings and electronic drones create the mood, while ex-Courtney Love band violinist Emilie Autumn conjures up a momentary sense of pity for the condemned killer with her sorrowful vocal rendition on the album's climax, a submersive darkAmbient gem which incorporates the hymn "Rock of Ages."

All mine enemys whispers features Ned Kirby of Stromkern, Erica Mulkey of Unwoman and Rasputina, and Laurie Reade of High Blue Star and Pigface.

"As subtly chilling a thing as you'll ever hear. If you're brave, you can listen to All mine enemys whispers in the dark, but you might want to pull the covers over your head just to be on the safe side." - REGEN magazine, USA

"Pushing the boundaries of dark ambient and neo-classical..." - Justin Mitchell/Cold Spring records

Extremely moody, neoclassical work
I am a giant fan of great concept albums. People that write great songs are fine, but I love the art form of creating an album. In my world, all albums would have consistent themes. Attrition's, "All Mine Enemys Whispers" is an example of such a concept album, and it is executed very tastefully, and with great talent. The album is about Victorian era serial killer, Mary Ann Cotton. I want to focus on the music, but you should definitely read up on the subject matter, as the story is quite fascinating.

Overall, this is a dark ambient style album with a lot of neoclassical elements. However, all of the instrumentation is very subdued, extremely dark, and quite ghostly. The piano work that is scattered about the album is very gentle, but genuinely spooky. The same can be said for the violin and cello work, which very slowly creeps around the mix. The subtle musical movements are really quite scary. The electronic ambient work is not quite as thick as what you might hear on a Lustmord recording, but does create a very tense and tortured mood. There is definitely a sense of evil here that takes place between every musical note.

It is hard to draw comparisons, but this might be of interest to anyone who likes Midnight Syndicate, Shinjuku Thief's "Witch Trilogy" or Jill Tracy's soundtrack to Murnau's "Nosferatu".
