Penetralia is the debut studio album by Hypocrisy, released on October 5, 1992 on Nuclear Blast Records. This is the first of two studio albums with vocalist Masse Broberg, who would later be dismissed as vocalist, with guitarist Peter Tägtgren assuming the position instead. Hypocrisy's lyrics do not focus on the paranormal and science fiction as would be the case in later albums, instead focussing on more "traditional" death metal themes such as Satanism and anti-Christianity.

In the attic of his family home, Philip tortures abducted men in search of enlightenment. Using the knowledge left by his father, the Plague Doctor, he seeks to unlock the secrets of the universe, but weakness of the flesh won’t be ignored. The sordid overtures of his nymphomaniac sister, combined with his own perverse desires, soil his subjects before revelation can be found. Now the return of Philip’s father is imminent. Judgment is at hand, and if the fate of his mother taught him anything, it’s that one mustn’t disappoint the Plague Doctor.
Okay, we need to get one thing out of the way: The title of this book, "Penetralia," is not actually as dirty as it sounds. The definition is:

1. the innermost parts or recesses of a place or thing.

2. the most private or secret things.

Okay, so you can get your mind out of the gutter.

Okay, now put your mind right back in that gutter.

"Penetralia" by Jordan Krall is a hard book to get your head around. You're constantly slapped around by images of physical and sexual violence, and yet there's a constant promise that there's going to be a grand revelation of wisdom through these actions. The story follows a family who is seeking through violent experiments on unwilling subjects/victims for an ultimate Wisdom as prescribed through ancient texts. The grown-up brother and sister, Philip and Elizabeth, are conducting these experiments on their own in their father's absence, who dresses in a plague doctor costume and is away for unknown reasons but will be returning soon.

Right away, you will realize that it takes a strong stomach to get through "Penetralia." Krall has never shied away from gross and violent gross imagery before. In some books, like "Squid Pulp Blues" for example, he seemed have a strange obsession with characters releasing their bowels at inopportune times. In "Penetralia," Krall has kicked it up more than a couple of notches. Almost from the get go, you're shown that this is a very incestuous family, and that some of the experiments performed on their subjects/victims to reveal the ultimate Wisdom involve extraction and consumption of numerous bodily fluids and substances. Seriously, do not read this right after you've eaten. I have a cast-iron stomach, and even I felt a little queasy after one of the early scenes where Philip consumes one of their subject's vomit.

If you can get past this (or even if these parts were cut out or rewritten), it's not so much a story about torture, murder, and incest, but becomes a story of an extremely dysfunctional family that suffered continual and extreme abuse at the hands of their patriarch. While Philip resents his father for the abuse with every fiber of his being, he still does everything he can to continue his father's work knowing full well that he will never earn his father's approval. Elizabeth, on the other hand, has a case of Stockholm syndrome, loving her father deeply even for or because of the abuse she has suffered, despite knowing in the back of her mind that what she has suffered through was horrible and violent.

This made the book very frustrating. Krall is a great writer, and the prose is brilliant throughout, clean (not counting the gross imagery), and quick to read, even with making you stop to reread something or think about a particular scene carefully. But the imagery felt unnecessary to what would have been a fascinating story, and even distracted from it. The disturbing images felt like they were put in for sheer shock value. In that respect, they do their job well. But the story underneath it is actually very interesting. The story of a dysfunctional family who finally come to terms with the abuse they've suffered and confronting their abuser is actually quite engaging, but it becomes buried in the shock scenes so heavily that it's difficult to see. You practically get two separate books, one for shock value and one for a heartbreaking story, but the two don't mesh well and are constantly fighting for your attention.

Overall, "Penetralia" has some great writing, a potentially powerful story, and vivid if disturbing imagery. I know that Krall has recently moved away from writing bizarro fiction, and "Penetralia" may have been his swan song in the genre. It's certainly a strong and powerful way to bow out, but it was a little too extreme for my tastes. I sort of wish he had bowed out sooner and written "Penetralia" with more focus on the story than the imagery, which based on his False Magic Kingdom series he can clearly do. Don't get me wrong. Krall has a real talent for descriptive imagery and storytelling, but in "Penetralia," those two forces seem to be at war with each other rather than support each other, making it confusing and not my particular cup of tea.

"Penetralia" by Jordan Krall earns 3 plague outfits out of 5.

When I finished this book, I was left wondering what it was about.
I didn't get it. We learn of a son trying to continue his father's research, but although we find out that it requires human subjects whose lives are gradually and horribly leached from them, we never find out what this research is about. There is a passage with mysticism where the father is consulting with some ancient desert sage but I was left befuddled as to what specifically the father might have learned from this encounter. There are drug induced visions all through for all characters.
Then I realized that none of this really mattered to my understanding of the novel. It was all there to populate the real drama which was the relationship of the father with his daughter and son and the deceased mother. As in classical Oepipus complex theory, the son loves the mother and fantasizes sexually about her, the daughter does the same with the father, the son-father rivalry is there, so is the daughter-deceased mother rivalry. In this novel though, all the incestuous sexual deisres are acted out along with a whole slew of other deviances found in Bizarro works.
Taken from this perspective, the book became a lot more interesting to me.

This is a beautifully written book. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there is something sublime going on here. It manages to remains subtle despite being truly disturbing. And while it is disturbing and even disgusting at times, this isn't a horror book. Yes, horrific things happen, but not in a way that sensationalizes the violence.

Phillip and Elizabeth are siblings who live in a giant Victorian manor where Phillip continues the work of his father, a plague doctor who is out traveling when the book begins. Their mother has been dead for years. Phillip and Elizabeth have a love-hate enabling relationship. She craves abuse from Phillip, who hates that she loves the abuse at all, and Phillip abides because he loves her and wants to protect her.

The work Phillip performs requires human subjects. Elizabeth seduces men and brings them home to drug for her brother. Phillip than experiments on the bodies using various archaic contraptions in the hope of extracting some absolute form of wisdom from the victims.

What follows is a story about the search for truth while a family tries to cope with each other and their mad sexual proclivities. The children sacrificing everything to appease a father who's egotism knows no bounds. But what happens when good children snap? How long can a son hold inside all the anger and resentment toward a father who only shows him disappointment and disapproval?

Follow the black giraffes on their bicycles into a world of arcane texts, sexual frustration, and the plague called Family we are all infected with.

Without question, I would rank PENETRALIA as Jordan Krall's darkest work to date. Blending gothic horror with spiritual madness and over-the-top scenes of sex and violence, and brimming with dread, abuse, and psycho-sexual fits of insanity, I can't say that this is an easy book to stomach. But it's one you have to get through. Like the best of Krall's work, PENETRALIA grabs hold of you in its first pages and refuses to let go until long after you've finished reading.

The plot concerns a family ripped from an Andy Milligan film. Abusive, psychopathic, hateful and incestuous, Milligan would have wept with joy at the "happy family" on display here. The relationship between the two siblings is simultaneously revolting and fascinating, as is the relationship with their mysterious father.

But I'm afraid that's all I can say without giving too much away. As I've said, this isn't a book for the weak of heart. However, if you enjoy strange, perverse family dramas with a liberal dose of gore and madness, and if you've got a particularly strong stomach, pick PENETRALIA up immediately. It will not disappoint.
