about

“…an absolute mind-fryer, comprising gloopy bass insanity, scattergun drumming and synths that ooze between tuneful, ambient and eye-stabbingly jarring. Things slip and wriggle, touching base with the likes of Trencher, Genghis Tron, and The Locust but out-progging them all and arriving at a sound that’s more akin to malfunctioning alien technology than normal, regular “music.”” – Collective Zine

"It’s dark and weird, but you won’t be able to turn away. Espionage is a fever-dream drenched in bad acid and good cough syrup. It twists, turns, shifts, and discombobulates. It stays crunchy even in milk. Really, it’s the perfect song and video for a place called Toilet Ov Hell." - Toilet Ov Hell

“BANGLADEAFY has been blowing people’s minds with their EP releases over the past few years and now they’re finally releasing a killer full-length record. It’s called Ribboncutter, it’s absolutely going to turn your brain into a steaming pile of blithering nothingness, and we’re premiering it in full today. […] Why bother repeating what you’ve already heard when BANGLADEAFY can destroy you in other, brand new and exciting ways?” – Metal Injection

“The bass and drum duo are skilled, taking the song through multiple moods and levels of intensity over the course of two-and-a-half minutes. Without guitars or death growls, BANGLADEAFY‘s version of extreme is different than, say, Dying Fetus, but it’s no less impressive for it.” – Decibel Magazine

“Yes indeed, it’s heavy as fuck, and sufficiently berserk to make your brain rattle like a marble in a can affixed to one of those pneumatic paint shakers. The music’s combination of intricate, hard-pulsing, head-battering rhythms is nerve-exploding, and the synth’s rapidly warping tones and equally rapid swirling sounds (along with a cavalcade of other darting phantoms of electronic lunacy and doses of wicked vocal incineration) are all mind-melting. Such an electrifying blast…” – No Clean Singing

“Brooklyn two-piece BANGLADEAFY have been making music for close to a decade and have few others they can be compared to. Trying to sell them to friends, usually goes, “they’re like if NIN and Hella had a baby.” The songs are dark, tense, humorous, displaying an absolutely mind blowing amount of skill by Jon Ehlers and Atif Haq. […] Ribboncutter is a furious departure from their last outing, the fantastic Narcopalma, featuring more deep, foggy synths, creating a series of songs that feel like early aught’s techno beats suffering from a withdrawal. […] The album clocks in at just over twenty minutes and is a train heading for oblivion from beginning to end.” – Post-Trash

“It’s not often you get a band that combines the genres of tech, world, and thrash, but when you do, BANGLADEAFY are the ones doing it right. […] As with most of the music from these guys, this track has a lot going on. Although it barely beats the 2-minute mark, the tune pummels you with the aggressive basslines of Ehlers, the hypnotic percussion of Haq, and enough dizzying synth lines to write home about. It’s a banger in the truest sense, and doesn’t let you go until it’s had its way with you, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.” – Gear Gods

“BANGLADEAFY still manages to produce the musical equivalent of a multi-coloured spray-paint can, practically jittering and bursting with bonkers rhythms and stomach-turning dissonance. It’s easy for this kind of thing to fall into the usual chin-stroking, muso trap, but Ribboncutter (Nefarious Industries) retains a certain character that gives it its replay value.” – Ghost Cult Magazine

“Jon and Atif form a spectacular symbiosis. Jon’s bass work is as incredibly daunting as ever, playing across the whole tessitura of his instrument in a frantic and relentless fashion — which made BANGLADEAFY what it is! — while Atif’s drums are complex and intricate, melodic in a sense, too, with different percussions playing the role of pitches on a musical staff. […] Ribboncutter is undoubtedly BANGLADEAFY‘s best work to date, topping even 2016’s Narcopaloma, which already set the bar higher than before.” – Can This Even Be Called Music?

“Drummer Atif Haq and Bassist/synth player/vocalist Jon Ehlers have once again delivered a high energy blast of unique, guitar-free tech metal with punky vocals that inspire feelings of resistance and uprising. The synth work on the track creates a fairly abrasive and disconcerting vibe, and it fucking rules! […] Considering the fact that BANGLADEAFY didn’t even touch their most deadly weapon -the bass- on this track, I’m intrigued to hear how they utilize it in the other tracks on Ribboncutter.” – Everything Is Noise
