REVIEW-EN NIHIL-DEAD FREQUENCY-CASSETTE

EN NIHIL-DEAD FREQUENCY-CASSETTE
DANVERSSTATE RECORDINGS/DSR58
HARSH NOISE/POWER ELECTRONICS/DEATH INDUSTRIAL
COMES IN A PLASTIC CASE WITH J-CARD INSERT.
ON A BLACK CASSETTE.
EN NIHIL IS:
ADAM FRITZ



SIDE A.) 
I.) DEAD FREQUENCY I:
Soft rumbling sub bass rhythms crawl across the floor in a lurching
loop.Instantly a feeling of dread fills the air as feedback climbs
from out of distant depths and reaches towards the listener.Secondary
loops consisting of high end electronics radiate like pale moon light
filtered through a dust smeared window.Wet sounds like bullfrogs on the
other side of your walls can be heard along with scratching noise like
rats trying to force their way in under the foundation.Harsh noise and
thick frequencies splinter the wood of your floorboards as everything
around you begins to quake in a fear induced fit.Audio terror and digital
decay.Straight noise rarely sounds this corroded and vile.This is pure black
audio.Soon everything around you is thrown into a frantic whirlwind as if you're
belongings are being violently misplaced by energetic poltergeists.Twisting sounds
like come like a forming vortex and shoot powerful jolts of raw energy in every
direction.It sounds like we are in Frankenstein's lab as the monster awakens.High
energy levels reach hazardous peaks.The paint is stripped from the walls as the
stones and wood holding it all together begin to come down in a cascade of debris.
EN NIHIL has never seemed so furious and I have reviewed several of his releases
over the years...Dead Frequency is an all out storm.Raging harsh Power Electronics
like you've never experienced before.Heavily distorted and yet so crisp and clear
that you can make out every sound in the carnage blasting fourth.Pummeling bass-
drum-like rhythms beat you to a bloodied pulp as chilling ambiance begins to hover
on spectral strings.It feels like the very spirit of Death himself is being channeled
through your speakers...This isn't a noise album...It's a fucking conjuring.In the 
Lovecraftian tradition I will leave you with no words to describe the foul beasts
that enter next...All I will say is that they are absolutely maddening.It arrives
in a wave of silence.Deep heavy breaths fill the air and all fades into a dead
silence...On we go to side B where other nameless horrors await.

SIDE B.)
II.) DEAD FREQUENCY II:
Intense feedback that literally scared the shit out of me rings in the air
beyond the threshold of tolerance.This shit literally caused me to jump in
my fucking seat.Harsh walls of swarming static devour what little sanity
you have left.Distorted rhythms turn out like a foul ocean of rot and 
stench.Additional layers of merciless noise roll out like a fucking
panzer tank on an all out warpath.This is total destruction.Cannons
fire off and blow large chunks through anything in their path.It almost
sounds like blast beats sped up ten times fast.All while the original
high pitched signal rings in the air like audio torture.The levels of
distortion here are unmatched.This is about as harsh as noise can get.
Bones are grinded into a thick powder as the war machine treads on.
Every obstacle is smashed...Every building demolished.In terms of
volume this is beyond loud.At times it sounds like a militia of
ground forces have been deployed with orders to start a mechanical
massacre and leave no survivors.There are no fucking prisoners left 
to take anyways.EN NIHIL will leave you absolutely wrecked with this
one.The sounds of heavy artillery and rotating chopper blades come 
and create an atmosphere of pure punishment.Un-oiled and rusted
machines are air dropped in to blow the debris into dust and the
dust into nothingness.I literally had to turn this one down as shit
started shaking and falling off of my shelves.If you have ever wanted
to experience the sounds of a battlefield during World War Two then
look no further than this release.That is literally the best comparison
I can think of to describe what I am hearing.Rockets burst and send sharp
missiles of shrapnel back down to earth.Mountains of human gore are piled
up and blasted into chunks and chunks of chunks until nothing remains that
could be recognized as a human being.Steaming fountains of blood form rivers
and then seas as the assault comes to an end.A few crunching rhythms chew up
any remaining bits and it's lights out.Permanently.

I KNOW IT IS EARLY IN THE YEAR BUT "DEAD FREQUENCY" HAS ALREADY MADE MY
TOP TEN LIST FOR 2015.A FUCKING MASTERPIECE OF RABID HARSH NOISE:

10/10
