Lebanon Hanover’s bassist William Maybelline is back with his solo project. After the debut album Sable from 2015, Qual strikes back with a three-track 12” maxi-single. Each one of these new songs explore a different dimension of Maybelline’s approach to Body/Wave electronics. The title-track Cupio Dissolvi is what we may already call classic Qual: gloomy and throbbing, synth-driven and labyrinthine. A Bloody Blob explores new martial slants, with war-like timpani and a marching robot gait. Rape Me in the Parthenon is a 8 minute long dancefloor mayhem anthem scanned by some pounding techno drumbeat and EBM snare and pads. The most alert of you already checked this in some Ancient Methods DJset. By far the most extreme track Qual recorded so far.
“Buried in flowers with hands of gold / Buried together we’ll never mold” shall be thy epitaph here, as well as your message engraved on virgin vinyl.
