You are 35 years old, Mr. Vale. Why are you such a derelict? Such a piece of human junk?

The answer's simple. You're a scanner, which you don't realize. And that has been the source of all your agony. But I will show you now that it can be a source of great power.

Quote: What's so fucking bad about self-medicating? I'm the one who's fucking brain it is, I know what's going on.

Grew up in Pokoh's Peak. In and out of psychiatric facilities since she was a little kid. A regular on the metal scene. Plays in a band, goes to lots of gigs, does a lot of drugs. Kind of a mess. Self-medicates, but the shit she's taking can't be helping. Says she knows weird stuff. Probably just bullshitting.

She plays bass (and sometimes guitar, or weird sound effects) in the band Machine Elves. They're a three-piece outfit, with two other girls on guitar and synth/guitar/weird sound effects respectively. They're playing a weird mix of ambient black metal, psychedelic doom and drone. All slow chords building on one another, drawn-out textures that start sparse and get thicker and heavier. Melody and finesse as a secondary concern to harsh, grinding, crushing drones. Vocals as whispers, chants and guttural rasps, repetitive mantras to old dead gods getting buried under layers of fuzz and static that fold in on them endlessly. Their demo album (available on the band's Bandcamp) draws out three songs - Nergal, Kur and Erishkigal, each exploring different morbid aspects of ancient middle-eastern mythology - over the course of 70 minutes, while intricate (if bizarre) liner notes provide an occult-mythological framework to the pieces. This is doom metal taken to strange new depths of sonic weirdness, somewhere between the visionary and the utterly unlistenable.
