Quote from: Baglady on April 03, 2019, 10:02:39 AMSEWER ELECTION - Killing For Belgium C30 (Harsh Head Rituals)If the collab Killing Sessions puts you right in the middle of a natural disaster/battle scene/scary situation, Killing For Belgium has you sitting comfortably somewhat above that scenario. Panoramic destruction. Like an aural harsh noise take on Where's Wally?, or a two-page war scene in some Moebius comic. Side A is a varied affair. Burning hot rumble ebbs and flows, sometimes taking a step back to allow for other kinds of badness to shine, with heavy showers of feedback throughout. Side B has you moving slightly closer to the carnage. More straight, less varied and more wallish, but still distinctly different from the collab Killing Sessions in that you can still easily single out all the parts and details. This might just be one of my favorite SEWER ELECTIONs.
Quote from: FreakAnimalFinland on April 04, 2019, 01:34:20 PMTRERIKSRÖSET "Kristen Musik från Rågsved" LPHarbinger SoundMono noise. That's specified on the cover. Been listening about 60 CD's worth of Merzbow in last couple of weeks and appreciating it's vivid usage of stereo panning and other such tricks. Step to Treriksröset mono harsh noise hits hard and brutal. In good way. Not that I would oppose colorful and neat noise, but despite clean looks of this album, and the title which is not a ironic remark, there is something dark and grim in the noise that Treriksröset does. It is highly active and sounds that could be live-in-the-bedroom type of recordings. Many rotten and ripping sounds, always on the move, but still somehow ... bleak and grey scaled sonics. Listened album instantly couple of times and certainly needs more spinning.
Quote from: Force Neurotic on April 09, 2019, 05:06:48 AMKostas Kefalianos "Phlegma" CS (Thalamos, 2017) Short cassette of synth and tape minimalism (final track for farfisa and tape loop) from one of the label heads. Five great but all too brief compositions, very much from the Maurizio Bianchi school. Apparently, these are edited down from longer pieces by the other label boss (one Panos Alexaidis, whose work I've yet to check out). Should appeal to fans of Arkhe, Copley Medal, Cryptofascisme. Right up my alley and with just enough variety, but too short. Longer, next time, hopefully.
Quote from: Bloated Slutbag on April 08, 2019, 11:40:01 AMTEF – FrameworkTEF, ten years on, is TEF. White-gloved attention and focus on only the choicest cuts, delivering breakneck collisions of blown-out harsh particles exploding in ill-contained rage. Well-contained rage. Whatever. A perfect storm, if you will, of harsh cut-up purity. Ten years on and perhaps some signs of change. A few more experiments with quieter introspection. A bit more space for un-affected acoustics to twist and twerk. More opportunity for subtle intricacies to flesh out the delicious core. For the most part full-force full-metal spastic, like why mess with a winning formula. Total earhole fuckfrenzy par excellence.edit edit editfixed
