REVIEW-CITIZEN 2-13/SWOLLEN ORGANS-CAN'T HIDE-SPLIT-CASSETTE

CITIZEN 2-13/SWOLLEN ORGANS-CAN'T HIDE-SPLIT-CASSETTE
NOISECO2-13
HARSH NOISE/POWER ELECTRONICS
COMES IN A PLASTIC CASE WITH J-CARD INSERT.
ON A YELLOW CASSETTE WITH LOGOS STICKERS.



SIDE A.) CITIZEN 2-13:
I.) RITUALS I. II. & III.:

The CITIZEN 2-13 side offers up a triple dose of relentless Harsh Noise
in a constant state of metamorphosis.Varying tones that strike out and
bitch-slap the listener into submission.Myriad layers of sonic violence
in harsh distortion and screaming feedback.Dense rhythms roll out and
transform as white hot steam hisses fourth from ritualistic machines.
Strange tone fill the air like native flutes and vanish like ghosts of
dead tribes.Punishing landslides of corroded and distorted sub-bass
tumble down and fade into high end pulses.Repetitive segments lead
us into passages of all out destruction.Everything from frenzied and
rabid Harsh Noise chaos to shifting sounds of industrial factories in
full swing.Low winds sweep through voids of feedback as distant machines
pound and pummel in the background.Circular saws cut through metal and
fill the air with sparks and heat until they are taken over by marching
pistons and mechanical arms that thrust in a forceful display of inhuman
rape.It's like fist-fucking robots are having an orgy in your ear drums at
times.Decayed patterns loop and change into glitched out verions of what
they once were.Swarming gusts create small whirlwinds until they are lost
in assaults of harsh distortion that rips through the room like a violent
sonic tornado.Everything sounds crude and unmastered.Pure raw rhythmic noise
for your stimulation.For a short period of time there is an almost Death
Industrial vibe to the last track here.Dreary drones and resonating echos
hang in the air over heavy electronics until all is silent.From destruction
to death.

SIDE B.) SWOLLEN ORGANS:
II.) LIGHT AND HEARTLESS / III.) THE SURFACE OF YOUR BODY:

The SWOLLEN ORGANS side slowly gains momentum as harsh static rises
over deep drones and scrap metal rhythms that sound like a gate being
swung upon on rusty hinges over and over again.Crackling distortion can
be heard rumbling beneath everything like a mudslide of filth and sewage.
The vocals are screamed in wretched tones and sound utterly vile.This is
ugly music plain and simple.No gimmicks, no compromises...Just pure gritty,
lo-fi power electronics with a harsh noise aesthetic and early 90's sound.
All the attitude that made artists like ATRAX MORGURE, TAINT, GRUNT, Etc
so great can be heard here.For a brief moment things get a little quieter
as spoken samples are played over hazy drones and then we are blasted in
the face with skin melting static.Grinding rhythms churn as the vocals 
return.This is some of the best stuff I have heard from SWOLLEN ORGANS
since the split with RAPE-X.There is a total DIY vibe here...Working
class power electronics from someone who is over-stressed and past the
point of fed up.The second track here begins with blistering high end
noise and enraged vocals that sound like they were recorded in a large
empty tunnel of some sort.Noise that resembles revving motorcycle engines
forms the bottom end of this one as pedals wail until they break the thresholds
of pain...Drilling deep into the centers of your ear cavities and dicking around
like they own the place.Mid-tempo bass drum rhythms stomp and hit hard until they
are all that can be heard.Warped and down right pissed off vocals spill out over
this and sound like some sort of alien warlord announcing a grand take over.This
is a great pairing of two different but equally intense styles of underground noise.
Fans of both should pick this one up for sure.

TWO INTERPRETATIONS OF AUDIO PUNISHMENT.BOTH SIDES KEEP IT
INTERESTING, SHORT AND TO THE POINT.IN YOUR FACE AND AGGRESSIVE:

6.5/10
