REVIEW-HUMAN LARVAE/MYTRIP-SPLIT-CASSETTE

HUMAN LARVAE/MYTRIP-SPLIT-CASSETTE
DANVER STATE RECORDINGS/DSR54
POWER ELECTRONICS/HARSH NOISE/DARK AMBIENT
COMES IN A PLASTIC CASE WITH J-CARD INSERT.
ON CLEAR CASSETTE WITH STICKER LABELS.



SIDE A.) HUMAN LARVAE

I.) ANOREXIC KISS:
My apologies if part of this review comes off as biased in any way.
I have been a big HUMAN LARVAE fan since I heard his album
"Home is Where the Hurt is" a few years ago.I have also really
enjoyed everything he has done since...And I have a thing for
splits that feature bands that compliment each other well.
Whether they do so through means of a common theme or
by utilizing diversity to bring it together as a whole.This
particular release achieves this through the latter.With the
HUMAN LARVAE side we have a track that was recorded way
back in 2008 that greatly differs from what he is doing these
days...Although he seems to change directions to some extent
with every release...This one is really different from the HUMAN
LARVAE we know today.Here we have one track of Harsh Noise
brutality that fills up the entire A side of the cassette.Massive and
ever-changing rhythms of static and dense distortion that ride on
gusts of black wind like an approaching pestillence.Rumbling and
crunching tones in a frenzied blur of chaos along with electronic
experimentation and disgusting samples of vomit and bile being
spilled across the floor in all their wet and choking glory.This has
the essence of stuff like DEATHSTENCH or ADERLATING but stripped 
down to it's most raw and primal form.This track sounds like it was spewed 
fourth rather than simply created.Radio transmissions send daemonic voices 
over the airwaves.Distant rituals and burried seances can be heard if you listen 
closely.This track is filled with hidden treasures.I recommend listening to this 
one in solitude and in complete darkness.It's an utter disaster of high end feedback 
and smothering distortion...All the while low electronic rhythms drone on in true 
Power Electronics fashion.Black vomit circles the drain and then bubbles back to the 
surface.Roaring Hell fires sing an unholy hymn of inverted praise as warped electronics 
swing like knives in every direction.Hissing bursts of steam and glitching noise similar 
to MACRONYMPHA fills the room and then shifts into something new.This can be 
compared to artists like SEWER ELECTION or DEVELOPER at times but it never 
sounds like HUMAN LARVAE set out to copy anyone elses style or approach.The all 
out free for all of Noise sounds like screams of torment at times and a swiftly 
approaching holocaust at others.Burried vocals claw their way to the surface 
and come in low growls with an inhuman quality...And then just like that it
ends as quick as it came.

SIDE B.) MYTRIP

II.) WHITE LEAVES / III.) REMAIN UNBURIED:
This is my first time hearing MYTRIP and as always we were more than
excited to hear something new to us here at Traumatic Static.The MYTRIP
contribution differs greatly from the audio apocalypse of HUMAN LARVAE.
MYTRIP dwells in a quieter but no less creepy side of noise.Instead of killing
you in a brutal attack, MYTRIP chooses the slow and painful approach to
slaughtering your senses.Sinister winds blow like a warning to turn back and
go the fuck home before it's too late.Slow and unsettling Horror movie style
ambience builds and drifts like fog.Distant storms thunder as the sky grows
black and all light fades.Dense and dreary.The sound of hauntings about to
take place and ghost stories about to come to life.MYTRIP offers a totally
different interpretation of darkness in direct contrast to what HUMAN
LARVAE did before...Not only does this keeps things interesting but it acts
as two sides to the same coin.Two seperate but equally painful faces of death.
Spirits moan and writhe coloring the atmosphere in various shades of woe.Both
artists here create something that perfectly reflects the overall vibe invoked by
the haunting album art.We hear low breathing like a contact mic in a coffin as 
someone is drugged and burried alive.Deep pounding bass rhythms are heard
like the sound of dirt being tossed as fresh graves are dug.Deep howls echo in
the distance sounding like daemonic wolves in communication with the full
moon.As we go into the second track on the MYTRIP side we hear what sounds
like impatient breathing.Like a caged beast of unspeakable horror with a thirst
for blood waiting to be free'd.Deep and slow Death Industrial bass rhythms plod
on like the march of reanimated corpses.It sounds like fears and nightmares are
being manifested and unleashed on an unsuspecting public as they sleep.Eerie
ambience hovers like mist over a cold lake.Monstrous growls are looped and
repeated enhancing the overall sense of doom that hangs heavy in the air.Loud
crashes of thunder and deep piano keys bring another layer of dread to the peice.
Sub-bass movements that almost sound like Drone Doom guitar riffs similar to
SUNNO))) or DEATHSTENCH come in giant waves of crushing death.MYTRIP
have crafted and unleashed two plagues on humanity.This is Dark Ambient and
Death Industrial fuelled by rot and decay.Songs for the carrion to creep to.

DANVER STATE RECORDINGS REALLY KILLED IT WITH THIS LAST BATCH
OF RELEASES.THIS PARTICULAR ONE BEING MY FAVORITE OF THEM.DOOM
AND DEATH ARE UNLEASHED AND HUMAN LARVAE/MYTRIP ARE HORSEMEN
OF THE APOCALYPSE.UTTERLY HOPELESS.GRAB THIS AND EMBRACE THE SOUNDS
OF EXTINCTION:

9/10
