In a nutshell
Benjamin John Power (one half of Fuck Buttons) brings his project Blanck Mass to Rich Mix this April.
In World Eater Benjamin John Power - one half of Fuck Buttons – through his third album as Blanck Mass has made a reactionary and representative record of a year teeming with anger, violence, confusion and frustration. “World Eater is a reference to both the inner beast inside human beings that when grouped en-masse stops us from moving forward towards good, and a reference to human beings themselves and their place on the planet.” He says of the inner and outward consuming beast. “The beast is highly territorial and violent. It is very clear to me that the beast remains an ever-growing presence and threat. We have to understand and control the beast before we turn the world inside out and destroy it.”
Through seven tracks it becomes an emotionally varied and dense record that asks as many questions as it answers. A record planted equally in fear and hope, perhaps an apt sign for what the future holds, as Power says. “Fear and hope are both parts of our human make up, but it’s the way that we act upon these feelings that is of concern to me - to understand the beast or to become the beast.”
