BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Cancro is isolation, transmutation, the painful invasion of cellular degradation.

The uncertainty and the tension of the maquiavelic and mechanical droning of this EP slowly rots the brain like the unstoppable and violent human demolition that it is.
Close to the musical universe of Steve Roachs The Serpent's Lair second disc (the dark one) minus the percussion, Cancro could be the perfect soundtrack to a John Carpenters movie that does not yet exist, fusing the heavy ambient of "Prince of Darkness" with the dementia of "In the Mouth of Madness".

Divided in 6 pieces with such revealing titles as "One of these days i'll shoot myself in the head and say it's you" (Um dia destes dou um tiro na cabeça e digo que foste tu) or "Dragging a body through the morgue's corridor" (Arrastando um corpo pelo corredor da morgue), Cancro will probably please Sunn o)) fans as well as William Basinski's, particularly the ones who like suffocation and agony soundscapes.

«Há novidades MiMi; excelentes novidades…
…isto é, sejam muito bem-vindos às paisagens sonoras de Cancro (a.k.a. Tiago Jerónimo); ao universo sombrio e ambientalmente vagueante de Cancro.
São paisagens em tensão, envolvidas num mistério tão etéreo como corpóreo, físico, pesado; sôfrego e em sofrimento. Tensão, parece ser aqui a palavra-chave.
Excelente experiência…»

«Over at the MiMi netlabel (, Cancro is giving desolation a good name. The six tracks on his new self-titled, freely downloadable release are, in a word, doom-tastic. From the static-to-roar of the opening cut, “A sala das máquinas” (MP3), to the military-recon soundtrack that is the closing piece, “Um dia destes dou um tiro” (MP3), Cancro traffics in more turbulence than your average airline pilot. On his profile page at the netlabel website,

Cancro lists his equipment as follows: Personal Computer, FM, AM waves, Guitar, Voice, Daylife sounds

It’s to his credit that none of those individual elements are self-evident in his deeply processed work. Dark echoes keep the material from getting too claustrophobic, though it is undeniably haunting. Check out “Composição n3? (MP3), which announces itself with a sudden thud and then proceeds like the effort of distant machines as heard from a windowless room.
