More Info

Too much noise, drone, and other post-industrial stuff sounds pretty much the same by now. This release, however, is one of the rare cases where proven elements are reconfigured in a way that is really fresh, surprising, and suspenseful. Starting out with what sounds like a battle between a diesel engine and a chainsaw, the piece morphs into glacial sheets of lowercase hum before, on the B side of the tape, fierce percussion starts to build up an extremely ominous atmosphere

One of the satisfying things about this release is that it manages to use both concrete and completely abstract sounds to their full emotional impact. Even though split into two sides of the tape, the release has a very consistent sound and dramaturgy. After the subdued, near-silent end of side A, the insistent rhythmic build-up on side B almost like a shamanic ritual comes as a real surprise and also something that brings out what was foreboding throughout side A. If you only ever get one NYM release, get this one.
