Gnaw Their Tongues

"Once I had a dream. It was something like a large avant garde orchestra. With a crowd of members. And all of them were playing a terrible abstract piece of improvisation: two drummers, four bass guitarists, horn section, string section, a host of vocalists... That's how everything started", tells Mories - professional graphic designer from the Dutch city of Drachten. He had been a member of local black, death, doom bands since 1998. Then he gave music up. And in 2002 he sat down to his computer to literally make his dream real. That's how Gnaw Their Tongues project was born. The title was inspired by Apocalypse, the last book of the New Testament: "(16:10) And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, (16:10) And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores,  and repented not of their deeds."
