Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Nordvargr – Pyrrhula
With it’s mixture of grim and dark ambience, bleak drone expanses, doom /slowed blacked metal tone & funeral industrial rhythms Pyrrhula builds a highly effective soundtrack for a dead, barren and grim world of endless darkness.

Adam Cornelius – People Who Do Noise
Glancing over the list of artists interviewed on this dvd I thought to myself: who are these people? If this is a documentary on noise why limit yourself to the scene of Portland, Oregon (USA) to have Daniel Menche stand out as the most famous artist?

Univers Zéro – n/t
When cd’s entered the scene many lp’s were released on the new medium rather carelessly, if at all. Years after that launch, even on the brink of the demise of it (as some claim), many recordings are given a proper treatment of remastering and repackaging.

Good Guys – The Social Engagement
It comes in a rather minimal and black sleeve, the debut of New Orleans-based band Good Guys. The Social Engagement is far from dark or black, their energetic rock is almost the opposite, actually.

Hiroshi Hasegawa – Ascension no.999
Ascension No.999 is a highly creative, shifting and psychedelic trip into noise matter from Hiroshi Hasegawa ( C.C.C.C, Astro, Mortal Vision, ect). Split over 2 long and devastating 20 plus minute tracks this really is nirvana for those who enjoy long form shifting Japanese noise.

Svarrogh – Yer Su
Yer Su is a very densely layered and shifting album that attempts to bring together treads of Germanic and Bavarian folk, metal, industrial elements, cinematic/ classic tone and stew of other sonic flavours. And through it often succeeds in its blending of sounds-it sometimes gets a little too crowded for its own.
