In this is year our cities have become giants of steel and concrete. Organized by computers and electronic technology.
It makes us feel to safe to think that man has control of his environment.
That science and logic have explained everything.
And yet, there are many phenomena that reach beyond our knowledge and reason, but we don’t accept them, and so we deny they exist.
Mankind clings to ideas of happiness and order, pursing temporary desires and pleasures, not wanting to experience or understand the fearful dimensions of darkness that run parallel to the world, we think we know.

When only pieces remain from a life of trauma, no dedication to the ego is too great. When the aftertaste of shame and guilt is unending and all-consuming, no offering of blood is sufficient. When every waking moment is a nightmare, no dosage is high enough.
Concrete Mascara is proud to announce the newest document of depravity, “Delusion Rituals”. This cassette documents two complete live performances, from United Forces of Industrial II and M.A.P.S. Fest respectively. These recordings contain live renditions of material from “Blossoms of Shame”, “History of Ruin” and “The Pursuit of Hedonism”.
