REVIEW-WHITEWATER ORGASM-MOMENTS OF SUFFERING-CASSETTE

WHITEWATER ORGASM-MOMENTS OF SUFFERING-CASSETTE
 DANVER STATE RECORDS-DSR48
POWER ELECTRONICS/HARSH NOIZE/AMBIENT
COMES IN A PLASTIC CASE WITH FOLD OUT INSERT.
TRANSPARENT BLUE CASSETTE

SIDE A.)
I.) DISSOCIATION:
Harsh blasts of annihilating distortion followed
by brutal waves of peircing high end feedback.A
churning holocaust machine of mayhem.Nails on a
fucking chalkboard noize.Screams distorted to an
extreme over a layer of stirring shoegaze like
ambience filtered through mild distortion.The
vocals are tormented on multiple levels and the
music is harsh as hell but there is an obscured
undercurrent of beauty that refuses not to be
acknowledged.Surreal and hazy daydreams engaged
in intercourse with vivid nightmares.
II.) FISHING HOOKS THROUGH YOUR ORGANS:
Extreme high frequency feedback rings out in
a dizzying array as pounding bursts of distorted
screaming appear and vanish.Glitched out and out
of control.This actually reminds me of SUTCLIFFE
JUGEND at times.A short and to the point demonstration
of pure fury.
III.) WAVES OF FLAMING DESTRUCTION:
Stirring ambience under brittle distortion.Whirring machine
like noize gives way to deep distortion and mangled screams.
Wave after wave of flaming destruction and crackling fire.
Thick and dark like an ashen sky.Hissing steam and smoke
choked rage.A kataklysm of charred life consuming chaos.
You can almost fill the smoke in your lungs and taste the
tar on your tongue.Having an album cover depicting brightly
lighted carnival rides is beyond misleading.Sarcasm and irony
folks.What did you expect from a band called WHITEWATER ORGASM?
whatever it was...A total audio inferno is what you get.Jump in
the furnace and be consumed.
IV.) STRIPPING AWAY MY HUMANITY:
Crunching static and glitched out electronics.Waves of thick
distortion similar to SHOCK FRONTIER.Manipulated distortion
breaks apart and disentegrates like a defective cog in the
machine.Death growls filtered through wavy effects flow like
smoke through pale moon light.Fuzzed up textures of layered
ambience looped and filled with an electric pulse.This segment
sounds a lot like the early minimal noize/industrial projects
like NON or maybe even THROBBING GRISTLE.Deep sub-bass rythms
add more of a pace and a point of direction to the peice.The
diversity of this album is what makes it so good.From total
violence to eerie silence with noteworthy amounts of beauty.
SIDE B.)
V.) INSECTS:
Striking feedback and warped frequencies fall off a cliff into
a chasm of dense distortion.A black underground realm of creeping
insects and nocturnal lifeforms.Shards of sharp static and vocal
roars take command peircing through the walls of sanity and breaking
through into realms of pandemonium.Soaked in anger and frustration.
Sounds like someone has had a really bad year.Dragging steel scrapes
across the floor as the vocals take dominance til sickness grows.
VI.) SICKNESS INSIDE ME:
Harsh feedback in a short lived meltdown.Almost an endurance test
if you have this cranked up loud enough; Which you should.
There is much to explore wihin the confines of this album from
harsh noize oriented murder to deep bass filled distortion and
tear jerking ambient segments.WHITE WATER ORGASM proves that
genre restrictions are a mere suggestion that is better left
ignored.A master of suspense,urgent aggression and veiled
atmospherics.
VII.) HEADS OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN
SCATTERED AROUND THE COURTYARD:
Dim room ambience drifts like a heavy fog.Chimes are heard ringing
like lost memories in the shifting air.A stark contrast from the
previous track.Thick synths swirl like living shadows changing
form and consistancy.All the dreariness of suffering in a cold
hospital bed as a malignant sickness festers and rots inside you.
Reflective tones of past joys tease at the fringes of the mind.
Despondency...and nothing else.
VIII.) INTERNAL BLEEDING:
Another display of beautiful stirring ambience with that signature
shoegaze-esque quality that was present before.All the emotion of
bands like NADJA or SKY BURIAL can be heard.A gentle radiance and
something I really would have never expected before hearing it.
Tidal waves of foam and liquid nearly conqueor all though if you
listen closely there is still much beauty to be found.Strangled,
writhing screams appear again taking me by surprise.If I had to
make a guess on how this would sound using only the song title
as a guide I would have never reached a conclusion that even
comes close to what we have here.Original is not a term often
seen is this genre but WHITEWATER ORGASM has earned the description.

IX.) FLOATING AWAY IN QUIET SOLITUDE:
Claustraphobic harshness injected with electronic weirdness.Brutal
and abrassive vocals in an all out fight to the death with anything
unfortunate enough to be in existence.A short session of complete agony.
X.) WILL I EVER BE ALRIGHT:
Ethereal synths filtered through phasers and other effects form a brilliant
cascade of heartwrenching saddness.Very brief but worth everysecond.I highly
advise that you invest some time in this.Not your average album.
FUCK TRADITION...TRY SOMETHING INTERESTING:
7.5/10
