Propergol * Un Déchaînement De Violence / Cleanshaven (2cd 2006 functional records)

Tesco rereleased the two very limited debut albums of the French noise-act Propergol. I got to know Propergol for the extremely dark, well-structured noisescapes with here and there a power electronic eruption. These two remasted albums mostly contain merciless noise. Extreme power electronics lacking the structure and the many samples of the later albums. Only a few tracks have those typical elements such as extremely low frequencies, deep beats, filmsamples and strange sounds. On both albums are a few magnificent tracks, but the over-the-top noise tracks that sometimes last for over 10 minutes, are too much for my taste. Nice for archival reasons, but I prefer the later recordings of Jérôme Nougaillon.
