Split Booth 09:51
The power; it's in the promise. The promise; it's in the word. The word is the lord. So cut out my tongue.
Annihilation 12:12
Revel in the annihilation of god. You'll drink our gaul; the gaul of sons. Where are you god? Where is your son? Split their skin. Blood pours in. Seraphim skin. Ascension's cleft. Ascensions clap. Cherubim sin.
Dissemble 10:49
Parousia 04:48
Disappear. Waste away.
Catacombed 10:06
Walls become torn dreams. Hurl us into the void. So leave me alone.
I've to go somewhere for a while. Back to the bunkered century. Stone cold limbs. Gusseted; wired like lambs. Flayed on the mount. Rip. Split. All seer. His parabolic verse.


The Night Guild is a side project of singer/songwriter Pete Devlin and experimental composer James Joys, both of art-pop band Ex-Isles. Established to make more collaborative and cross-disciplinary work, their album Devil, Repent! is the first Night Guild instalment, and features conspiratorial alliances with artist Alana Barton, experimental percussionist Steve Davis, and renowned vocal group Landless, among many others.

Devil, Repent! takes as its starting point ingrained cultures of abuse and neglect within powerful and ostensibly unimpeachable institutions. With musical nods to devotional incantation and hymnal vocal harmonies, as well as an expansive and ambitious sound palette featuring brass fanfares, organs, and bells, Devil, Repent! seethes with brutality and yearns for euphoria. Their album quarries the dissolution, surrender, and disavowal of our own voices to authority in unquestioning deference to immutable truths. That we have allowed sex, guilt, and debt to be weaponised against us is a telling aspect of these institutions’ power. Devil, Repent!’s music uses sensual, heavy, club inspired grooves and rhythms, and passages of free improvisation as a way of resisting the self-righteous, celibate strictures of institutional religious doctrines that have mutated and controlled our culture and our politics.

"We find thus by experience that there is no good applying to heaven for earthly comfort. Heaven can give heavenly comfort; no other kind. And earth cannot give earthly comfort either. There is no earthly comfort in the long run."

"Love can be felt for bodies that claim more than a natural affection: for a church or (alas) a party in a church, or for a religious order. This terrible subject would require a book to itself. Here it will be enough to say that the heavenly society is also an earthly society. Our (merely natural) patriotism towards the latter can very easily borrow the transcendent claims of the former and use them to justify the most abominable actions. If ever the book which I am not going to write is written it must be the full confession by christendom of christendom's specific contribution to the sum of human cruelty and treachery. Large areas of 'the world' will not hear us till we have publicly disowned much of our past. Why should they? We have shouted the name of christ and enacted the service of moloch."

The Night Guild Ireland

An anonymous collective of musicians and artists based in Ireland who come together to create music that wobbles the intersections between deep grooves, improvisation, and electronic wizardry. Emerging out of the multifarious pulses and energies of night & the collective spirit of clubbing, it is shot through with the crepuscular skittering of caffeinated electronics, like an uncanny dawn chorus. ... more
