Synths arpeggiate….if thats a word…..within the first few seconds, but do not be fooled, anyone who had begun to fucking gangdam style had better be prepared for the noise that erupts from the speakers in the following minutes. Its gets hard, harsh, dragging you through the shit of the mind, your saturday night cumshot was a waste of thought and poise, you are fucking useless at picking up women/men, why bother? In life people just cannot keep saying, you had to be there for this gig! You had to see and feel the artists dimension and grace……
Nineteen minutes of fury make up for all the need, and it is harsh, noisy, an unrelenting stab at the stomach and heart, a mind racing energy cycle….There are synths here, I cannot say that there are not, but they are used sparingly, the basic eruption of noise never goes too far away. You are beaten into submission by the sheer intensity of the noise itself, and there after your only rise above all the hiss and destruction is the odd voice, the odd slash of the synth whip that unfurls and recoils against the frequencies and unshame.
A nice gig, wish I could have been there.
