IRM * Closure (cd 2014)

The new IRM on Malignant seems to have more of the ‘eerie’ sound rather than the wall-of-sound type noise. Not a style we have never heard from IRM by the way. What you can expect are the highly distorted (‘underwater’) vocals (so not the screamed and screamed-with-effect kind) with the minimalistic squeaky noisy sounds. There are also some softer, even more minimalistic tracks on “Closure”. What I miss on this new album are the low frequencies, the emotive violence. “Closure” nowhere really gets to me, while other IRM material does.
