POWER ELECTRONICS/HARSH NOISE
COMES IN A PLASTIC CASE WITH
J-CARD INSERT. ON PLAIN BLACK
NURTURE ABUSE IS:
I.) BITCH CAMP / II.) FOOD RIOTS /
III.) I'M GONNA GAS YOU ALL:
NURTURE ABUSE are a new one to me, But judging by the overall packaging
and the fact that Danvers State Recordings always releases excellent artists,
I had high expectations going in...Still...I was not prepared for the level
of total badassary I was in for. The unapologetic "Bitch Camp" starts things
off by taking us into clinical and hostile textures that shift and slide along
with rhythmic drones and some seriously pissed off and confrontational vocals.
Wicked, spiteful rasps that fill the air with pure scorn. The noise is dense,
Low, Deep and minimalistic. Early Industrial meets 90's Power Electronics
aggression. The drones break up and recollect as if reeling from the vocal
attacks. High end experimentation mimics guitar leads (Or maybe they are treated
guitars?, I can't really tell but it sounds awesome.) These bring the track to a
close along with the return of the opening textures we go into "Food Riots."
Whining feedback and noise that sounds like teeth grinding themselves to dust.
So far these guys could be described as something like WHITEWATER ORGASM meets
BLOODY MINDED or SICK SEED. Walls of rumbling noise roll out. Injected with
generous amounts of bass and fury. Secondary layers created with a heavy hand
on the knobs are added to increase the effectiveness of the assault. The vocals
are a rabid sermon of hate that comes spit right in your fucking face. No bullshit
to be found here. "I'm Gonna Gas You All" puts a cap in the A side with a slowly
rises electrical buzz and distant, Booming, Mortar fire bass kicks. Screams come
laced in crisp distortion as bass engines ignite and roar like a rocket taking
flight. Dull, muffled thuds come in chain gun blasts but are buried deep in the
mix. The overall intensity of it reminds me of the more vicious side of SUTCLIFFE
JUGEND although the sound of NURTURE ABUSE is much more their own. All in all this
is some killer Power Electronics.
IV.) FORGET EVERYTHING MOVE ALONG /
V.) HASH OIL BLOODLUST / VI.) ROOTING
OUT A PROBLEM / VII.) SLAVE / VIII.) WIPE
THE SLATE CLEAN:
"Forget Everything Move Along" throws us right back into the pit. All aggro
on this one. Sharp high end noise severs and slices as clouds of bass roll
in like a dust storm. The vocals are still bitter and brutal. Cruely commanding
that we forget everything and move along. Short and to the fucking point. "Hash
Oil Bloodlust" starts with surreal ambience that pools and slowly drifts. Synth
choir voices hum a melancholic lament and Harsh Noise textures add a static tension
as CP preaches hymns of death to an atmosphere of desolation. Again this is a really
short piece but it doesn't necessarily need to be long to be effective. "Rooting Out
A Problem" continues with another short fit of rage. Stomping rhythms, Emergency
alarms and alert signals and rolling distortion bring an all out black out. Heavy
bass currents flow and carry along vengeful screams. Additional "you're fucked"
alarms sound off and bring this one to an early death. "Slave" follows on dense
wings. Deep quakes of violence begin as an eruption of disgust and hate pours
out along with streaming synths that reach skyward. Shifting, scraping noise
takes over and things pick up again for a strong finish. "Wipe The Slate Clean"
ends things off just how I'd hoped. No remorse here. Looped pulses, Heavy bass
movements that tremble and shake, Razor sharp vocal delivery and strange distorted
noises. Simplistic, Unrefined, Power Electronics perfection.
