REVIEW - ACTUARY - NAILED TO THE EARTH - CASSETTE - C10

ACTUARY - NAILED TO THE EARTH - CASSETTE - C10
ENEMATA PRODUCTIONS
BLACK NOISE/DEATH AMBIENT/HORROR AMBIENT/DEATH INDUSTRIAL
COMES IN A JEWEL CASE WITH J-CARD INSERT. ON BLACK CASSETTE
WITH STICKER ON THE A SIDE.


SIDE A.)
I.) UNKNOWN CONSEQUENCE:
ACTUARY is a project that I've enjoyed for quite some time now. I have heard about
a dozen releases and have yet to be dissapointed. This is still true with "Nailed 
To The Earth." Although this is a short release at only ten minutes in total run
time, It is an excellent ten minute stay in pitch black territory. Side A showcases
"Unknown Consequence" where we certainly go into the unknown without caution and most
certainly face the "consequences." Dark and dreamy atmospheres with distant clattering
echoing drifts out of the speakers and pulls us with it. Synth drones rise and linger
along with reverb laden percussive elements. The track floats in a ghostly manner like
low fog wavering over ancient graves. Restless voices are heard murmuring within cyclic
distortion. Noisy signals and pulses crawl over the senses like insects blocking out all
light as they tear you apart and drag you down into the hollow depths of the cold, wet 
earth. By the time we reach the end of the track we have been devoured by a harsh cacophony.
A steady, yet heavy hand rests and works on the ENV and cutoff switches. Feedback and harsh
scraping junk abuse lacerate the flesh and wreck the mind until we are carried into the abyss
by phased drones and uneasy ambiance.

SIDE B.)
II.) NAILED TO THE EARTH:
On the B side we journey into the title track. In the brief five minutes of side A we've
already experienced mass amounts of disembowelment and despair. Let's see what ACTUARY 
has in store for our drained husks with "Nailed To The Earth." As we've already been
through expiration and interment it can't get any worse right?...Right?...Think I may
have spoke too soon...Malevolent atmospheres come like wretched apparitions with sinister
intentions. Moaning synths drone out and drop off into silence in repetition. Synth saws
slice fresh wounds in dead flesh. Power tools are utilized to bring all the warmth and 
cheer of a cold industrial abattoir. Blackened vocals spew filth and curses to make our
stay all the more pleasent as we are seperated limb from limb. The vocals are treated
with filters and effects that give them an inhuman/alien quality. It sounds like we
are going from abduction to vivisection to (Insert each and every horrible way to die
through dismemberment here.) Schitsofrentic electronic fuckery is heard along a backdrop
of noise that sounds like a trash compactor doing it's job without care that it's crushing
us to bits. Earthen crucifiction is a terrible way to go out. Be glad this is just music for
your entertainment...

ACTUARY PACK A SHIT TON OF ANNIHILATION INTO A MERE TEN MINUTES.
POTENT AND DEADLY. THIS IS A GREAT RELEASE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED:

8.5/10
