New release on Trapdoor Tapes from Australia's Radical Creation.
Necropolitical electronics, est. 2011, recorded 2014.
The Irish republican struggle has splintered into factions… multiple visions of a united Ireland, Continuity, RIRA, dissident republicans in every shade of green. Political violence crosses into stand-over vigilantism. Conservatives turning the gun on their own. RAAD, political action in the form of kneecappings. Spreading fear from within, pushing a generation into nihilism – derailing the future struggle.
Collective action is the only effective means to reject the institutions of an oppressor, violence within the community is not a political strategy…
Tiocfaidh Ar La!

Armour Group Purge LP OUT NOW



Ideologically, Armour Group align themselves in the firm tradition of the power electronics/death industrial genre- through their use of extreme minimal electronics accented by samples drawn from cult cinema that broadly reference serial killings, murder, disaster, misanthropy, immoral acts, relationships, love and betrayal. The totality of these important genre-specific elements aims to create an overall atmosphere of apocalyptic and existentially reactionary questioning as well as to incite feelings of euphoria and affirmation, whilst commenting on the way we currently process the impending demise of our current culture and natural surroundings. 

1st Pressing: 250 copies; Matte cover w/ black print + varnish overlay; Black vinyl.

Design – Trine + Kim Design Studio
Mastered By – James Plotkin
Performers – Harriet Kate Morgan, Luke Holland
Recorded Between 2014 - 2015.
