v/a – Besides You In Strength (2021)
When Thomas Garrison was diagnosed cancer facing an expensive near future, a whole group of fellow noise artists teamed up to create this 28 track compilation go gather financial support.
Released by Chthonic Streams through Bandcamp, I found a variety of known and new (to me) projects. Sistrenatus, Gnawed, Theologian, Gruntsplatter, Murderous Vision, but also names such as Lkerr, Vitriol Gauge, Thoabath and Straight Panic.
Most tracks are not as extreme as Control can get, but you will hear a lot of ‘wall of noise’ type of noise. Also more ambient approaches and industrial tunes.
The contributions are usually fine to good with a few tracks are are less of my liking. All in all not a bad compilation. Let us hope it will also help Garrison in some way.
