Gnaw Their Tongues is one of a few solo projects from Netherlands musician Maurice De Jong. A vile concoction of avant garde and black metal,Eschatological Scatology has a pervasive, foreboding atmosphere of chaos, terror and madness. Maurice De Jong's excellent use of sampling, noise and layers along with regular instrumentation (guitars, drums etc) lends itself to an immense wall of sound; there's just so much going on at any given second that you'll need multiple listens to take it all in. Plus the use of orchestral instruments gives certain parts of this album an almost 'bombastic' feel (think Hans Zimmer meets black metal), which makes for an interesting contrast to the whirling vortex of noise. This is by no means a conventional black metal album, it's way cooler than one, and it is most certainly worth subjecting your ears to.
