Nagasaki Grotesque - Confined By The Worthlessness Of Your Existence (2009) (SOULLESS AMBIENT/DEAD ANTI-MUSIC)

Nagasaki Grotesque - Confined By The Worthlessness Of Your Existence (2009).
© 2009 by Moribund Tree Records & KYR Productions.

This album was released on Cassette in January 1st (New Years Day), 2009 by Moribund Tree Records. The artist states that he lives in Illinois. If that is actually true, then he and I are from the same state. ;)

I just looked up the bizarre word, "Moribund", and I found it's meaning.
Much thanks to Google, who immediately places the definition of most words right below the search bar. To be honest, I had never heard of this word before, nor knew what it meant. So to save everybody some like what―5 seconds? I will just tell you the definition right here.

Mor-i-bund /ˈmôrəˌbənd/ [Mawr-uh-buhnd, mor-]
1. (Of a person) At the point of death.
2. (Of a thing) In terminal decline; lacking vitality or vigor.
1. In a dying state; near death.
2. On the verge of extinction or termination.

3. Not progressing or advancing; Stagnant.

Word Origin/History:
1721, "about to die," from Fr. moribund (16c.), from L. moribundus "dying," from mori "to die" (see mortal). Fig. sense of "near an end" is from 1837.

You can just thank the wonderful people at Dictionary.com and Google for giving us the knowledge from making websites and adding tools so we can just quickly look up words that we don't know right here on the internet.

Information about this artist (taken from his page on Last.fm):

'Nagasaki Grotesque is a project. Founding member A describes the project’s output as “” or “.” The titles and artwork of Nagasaki Grotesque frequently refer to World War II, and specifically the human impact. More recent works have moved toward philosophy and ritual works." -Last.fm

Such notes as for some of his albums frequently referring to World War II can be acknowledged by his album, "BURN THE CITY". The front cover for this album is a real and famous photograph that shows the severe effects of radiation on a Nagasaki/Hiroshima Atomic bombing victim. As you can see for this poor person: since after the bomb was dropped on those two cities, his skin had begun to fall off and melt away as if it had been turned to jelly. I just couldn't imagine all of the pain and suffering Japan had to endure in the aftermath of this abominable turn of events that would give America the heedless freedom and happiness of finally winning WWII. Disgusting...
