Bizarre Uproar is a Finnish power electronics slash harsh noise project initiated in 1992 by Markkula. The thematic subject matter is founded in extreme sexual transgressions, and rests within a totalitarian fetish culture at the explicitly perverse spectrum of human erotics. Central concepts within this context are pleasure carnage and death ritualization; mixed with an affixed seething desire to exercise fetid sexualized violence and humiliate the contemporary – sans safewords – towards utter degradative collapse. BU makes no attempt to conceal his predatory filthy devotion. On the contrary: With sadomasochistic affection, hate symbolics and iron hard cock; Bizarre Uproar blatantly edict to strangle and fuck the world into cold end. The fervor for mass annihilation and the ultimate cleansing originate from corporeal anti-social instincts as lust and hate that urge to burst – explode – in all directions… Leaving only crushed hope and nothingness in its wake. Can you hear the boots and latex clad masses hailing? “Verillippu nousee! Kyy Nouse!!
Twenty-three years into its run, Bizarre Uproar is at the apex of anti-music, progressively pushing what is frontier with a consistent strain of releases. The discography counts today over 100 titles and constitutes: Studio albums, live recordings, splits, eps, singles, compilations, films, numerous collaborations and studio musician appearances on external cadre’s releases. BU’s work is published and distributed worldwide on imprints as: Freak Animal Records, Trash Ritual, Spite, Filth & Violence, Urashima and Wrath. Bizarre Uproar has worked with many of today’s well-established bands within underground noise and black metal. We cite: Bastard Noise, Deathkey, Goatmoon, Ride For Revenge and Grunt. In addition to studio related work; BU played shows in Scandinavia, Baltic region, Europe as well as South-America; and in this capacity shared stage with several contemporary industrial/noise acts from Sick Seed to Sutcliffe Jugend. Beyond sonic work, Markkula have gained recognition for his visual expressions in raw xerox collages, installations and niche erotic film. In 2012, he collaborated with Jukka Siikala and Mikko Aspa on the art exhibition and integral book “You Are Worth It”. The exposition was presented at Gallery Kalleria, Helsinki/Finland. The inherent significants of cited actor’s influence on industrial culture and underground black metal, bare witness to the high level of professionality BU operates on; and that the initiative is recognized as a pioneering effort with substance by fellow musicians and a cult-following of noise fanatics.
Urashima is proud to present Bizarre Uproar’s 2015 hate opus “Amputaatio”: A monumental suffocating grind that tremor with the physical density and ritual ambience of late BU saga live-performances. The material on the LP bridge eras “Vihameditaatio” (2014) to “Rape Africa” (2012); and consists of two structured compositions of lengthy, slow-crawling, torturous nature. The instrumentation and compositional strategies extend the groundwork defined on “Vihameditaatio”, and is subtly balanced with “Rape Africa’s” static rawness and brutally imploding gutter-vacuum. The metamorphosis of the two otic stances plus live-sound fervor, cement “Amputaatio” as a meditative and destructive volcanic mass that froth with malignant intent. All out rotten. Sheer bestiality. Total alienating filth. Recorded in the BU bunker Autumn 2014. Mastered by SS-Pekka.
