HATE MAIL RECORDS/HM007
DEATH INDUSTRIAL/BLACK NOISE/POWER ELECTRONICS
COMES IN A FULLY ILLUSTRATED SLEEVE WITH DUST
JACKET. ON BLUE AND PURPLE MARBLE VINYL.
SIDE A.) THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND:
I.) ON THE RELIC:
This record kicks your ass pretty much right from the start.
THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND opens up with a short moment of
corroded sub-bass and then hits you in the teeth with pulsating
electronics that grind your skull into dust...Pounding deep percussions
and Death Industrial atmospheres and Horror Ambiance.Walls of static and
distortion rush out violently as wailing guitar leads scream and howl.A
chorus of human suffering soon follows and it's like Hell on earth.Warped
electronic frequencies come like rusted gears and cranks grinding together
over and over.Washed out, Lo-fi strands of static strike out like harsh
white lightening over and over again.This is grade A Blackened Noise along
the lines of DEATHSTENCH, T.O.M.B., DEMONOLOGISTS, Etc...Pitch black and
utterly relentless waves of sonic terror.The type of stuff that could strip
the paint from your walls and the sanity from your mind.Towards the end we
go into a more sinister and quiet segment of bleak ambiance and orchestral
passages that spiral downward like fallen angels headed towards the lightless
pits of the netherworld.Like a small dose of eternal punishment.This goes a few
steps further than ritual ambient into the realms of blackened soundscapes.
Pure unfiltered negativity laced in the very essence of whatever substances
nightmares are made of.Powerful stuff to say the least.
SIDE B.) RXAXPXE:
II.) HIS RETURN:
On the flip side, RXAXPXE offer up their own brand of Blackedned Power
Electronics.Dark and heavy shit along the lines of TREPANERINGSRITUALEN
and such.Like noise made by someone into raw 90's Black Metal and with
the same relentless attitude just carried over to another genre of harsh
and aggressive music.This one starts off with a bang! No intro's and no
bullshit.Harsh blasts of corroded noise over pounding metallic drum patterns.
Decayed rhythms repeat on as muffled vocals can be heard barely above a whisper.
After a few moments we shift into heavy industrial drumming and droning feedback.
Raspy blackened screams rise over walls of static and deep currents of sub-bass.
The feedback continues to rise as the vocals turn into deep chants similar to
something you'd hear on an early DARKTHRONE or IMMORTAL intro...What sounds like
a frenzy of voices is heard like a roaring crowd filling the seats of a colliseum
and demanding blood.Thick electronic pulses take the reigns and moan on over deep
and distant drum rhythms that plod on like a mechanical monstrocity shambling mindlessly
without reason.Spoken vocals laced in generous amounts of distortion recite incantations
of death until the last few drum measures and electric waves finish it all off.
FROM PITCH BLACK SOUNDSCAPES TO COLD INHUMAN HARSH INDUSTRIAL.
A DOUBLE DOSE OF OF BLACKENED ELECTRONICS TO CHANNEL DEATH AND
