Devour marks the fourth full-length record from New York City based artist Margaret
Chardiet’s project Pharmakon and the most intense output of her 12 plus years
creating industrial noise. Like her previous albums, Devour comes with a strong concept
that is exorcised throughout the five demolishing tracks on the album, using imagery
and language of self-cannibalism as allegory for the self-destructive nature of humans.
Each of the five songs echoes a stage of grief associated with this cyclical chamber of
self-destruction and the chaos surrounding us that leads us to devour ourselves in an
attempt to balance the agony.
