Gnaw Their Tongues The experimental black metal project of Mories (born Maurice de Jong), the Netherlands’ Gnaw Their Tongues (named after a verse in the Bible) began releasing work in 2006 with the full-length CD Spit at Me and Wreak Havoc on My Flesh following a year later.
As with most one-man black metal/noise projects’, Gnaw Their Tongues’ output over the next two-plus years was prolific and extensive, including a large number of EPs, a few splits, and full-lengths. After Spit at Me, a few EPs followed before the 2007 release of the second full-length album, Reeking Pained and Shuddering, which was quickly followed by two EPs and another full-length on Crucial Blast – An Epiphanic Vomiting of Blood — later that same year.
The year 2008 would find Gnaw releasing two split albums (with Constructing Enochian Temples, Mary Magdalene, and Narcosa) and a pair of EPs (Devotion and For All Slaves…A Song of False Hope) but, more importantly, it also saw the release of a remastered and re-edited version of Spit at Me.
The bludgeoning All the Dread Magnificence of Perversity arrived in 2009, followed in 2010 by the lighter and more orchestral L’Arrivée de la Terne Mort Triomphante. Released in 2011, Per Flagellum Sanguemque, Tenebras Veneramus saw Morie sreturn to the more direct and aggressive approach of earlier outings, as did 2012’s Eschatological Scatology and 2015’s Abyss of Longing Throats. The project’s 13th studio long-player, Hymns for the Broken, followed in 2017.
