THis is not necessarily an outstanding album, but it’s been a very long time that I listened to rhythmic noise. So cheers to that! Side note: interesting that this is self-labelled as industrial techno, haven’t thought of rhythmic noise as such, but it makes sense.
This became my go-to album lately, I listen to this literally every day. It is so calming and helps me focus like close to nothing. The interesting bit is that exactly that same recently I started to formulate this idea that I don’t like experimental music that much anymore. Whenever I listen to that noizy-glitchy IDM kind of experimental electronics from the more elitist kinds I feel only annoyance and impatiance. Although all the while I’ve been listening to more ambient than ever before, which often comes with drone and weird sounds. So I’m not sure what makes me stick or bounce. I think I appreciate harmonies now. Nice ambient soundscapes and well balanced patterns both give me that. Harsh noize and non-rhythmic sounds don’t. This record is one of the most sophisticated and masterfully crafted rhythmic noize sets out there. Also, this is one of the leading definitions of literal Intelligent Dance Music.
Wow, this is intense, surprising, deep, a journey. Apocalyptic bass heavy rhythmic noise with an industrial feel to it. Bites with sharp teeth and consumes with acid. And this is a debut album, taking off at Raster – not bad, not bad. Reminds me of when Diamond Version was new.
Power noise with rhythm and weight.
Strange and odd and experimental. Ranging from slow to mid tempo, ambient to power noize, beats to moods. Could be a great listen live.
