Vatican Shadow is the ‘Militant Religious Industrial’ outfit from multi-media artist Dominick Fernow. In 1997 Fernow founded the Hospital Productions label which manifested itself as an infamous brick and mortar store, engineering studio and packaging workshop in Manhattan’s East Village. Currently residing in the Los Angeles desert, he has set up Bed Of Nails Compound,a new imprint for industrial techno and electronic environments.
Vatican Shadow’s melodic loops and militant rhythms conspire upon the world stage of conflicts, where it isn’t clear what side you are on or who is winning. It is a deeply political music, one that only makes sense in today’s context of entrenched, unconscious Orientalism, government corruption and militant extremism on all sides.
