    humansacrifice is pleased to announce the release of SCI FI DEATH MASK by Peeesseye. Recorded in Antwerp in 2010, this is the last music made before the band split up....

    Peeesseye was formed in 2002 in Brooklyn NY by Chris Forsyth (guitar), Jaime Fennelly (harmonium & electronics), and Fritz Welch (percussion, vocals). Over a 10 year period they released a series of LPs, CDs, and tapes which displayed a restless evolution from quiet & static improv to acoustic noise and facemelting non-rock. Since the group's demise and the band-members' gradual evacuation of Brooklyn, they've remained individually active. Forsyth has relocated to Philadelphia and released a series of lauded guitar-centric records under his own name; Fennelly lived in a remote island in the Pacific Northwest for a few years and has re-emerged with the deep drone project Mind Over Mirrors; and Welch has formed various groups in the UK and Europe including the crypto conceptual anti-band Asparagus Piss Raindrop.

    "In a desperate effort to capture the final episode of Peeesseye, someone jacked a microphone into a cassette deck and pressed record. With a Wrecking Crew wink, SCI-FI DEATH MASK was created. It was the crowning.. and the killing.. of PEEESSEYE. No mucking about, this was pre-ordained. The natural conclusion.

    PSI/pee-ess-eye/The Peeesseye - Chris Forsyth, Jaime Fennelly and Fritz Welch -  has been decalcifying the pineal gland and throttling parameters for over a decade to craft shifting nimbus tensions - and deliverances - the sonic experience of lone naked swimming over the Mariana Trench. A Ranter's harmonium, tattered flag guitar, arrhythmia sleep percussion, meff soul crooning and electrical overload are arranged on a sixpence with a nefarious Brotherhood's collusion: the beauty is found overcoming the obstacles, not by roaming endless hypermarkets - letting go of not only formal technique, but just.. letting.. go - becoming a Radical Zen conduit; channeling a language that teeters between elegy and barbarism, the magical and corporeal. Soul and gut.

    The sad reality of right now is that SCI-FI DEATH MASK reached such a level of enquiry – or hallucinatory divination – it broke PEEESSEYE forever. 'What Is The Value, What Is The Purpose?' is the album's swan song. It transcends from crumbling blocks of sound debris into a beautiful orphaned force. From within the Cosmic Quaker Meeting House, the irrevocable tide of decay is contemplatively beatified!

    It's a miracle this album even exists. Who are we going to turn to now for audio-cosmi-anarcho-politico-necromancy? I'll miss you PEEESSEYE."
