Review of Alfarmania “Nojjan” CS

5 January 2011 2,735 views No Comment

From Andrew McIntosh:

Time to glug. This is pure, dark, filth ridden thunge Noise that augments heavy distorted feedback, extended metal scraping and ash burning electronic sounds as a slow moving, self-contained anti-cosmos. “Low fidelity” is not the right word to describe the sound as the recording is careful with it’s attention to certain detail but bass heavy enough to thicken the mastering without rendering it too low in volume. The grunting synth sounds are thick, hostile and pleasing, aggressive voices pierce the audio fog and metal clashes and bangs in the background underneath layers of oppressive static. The term “psychedelic” has been used to describe this and I can hear why but it’s a muggy psychosis, not so much a collage of distinguishable sounds but a furious meld of dark groaning drones, hisses and feedback that gels together like something Lovecraft would write about. It sounds like a simple set-up, actually, and the results are wonderfully primitive and hate filled. Momentum is not lost throughout both sides of the cassette. Uneasy, yet pleasurable listening.
