Industrial Culture

Luna Dopa * Dead.Circuit * Awake For The Black-Out Procession (mcd 2010)

It is not really the time of the year to release dark drones, is it? Inspite of that here we have a 20 minute 3″ cd with one track of Dead.Circuit and one of Luna Dopa. Dead.Circuit created a slow and monotous drone track. Low frequencies, almost no other sounds, a nice track. Luna Dopa also contributed a minimalistic track which is more soundscapish, but adds some guitar sounds (?) which I find not particularly appealing. The parts without the guitars are nice.

Industrial Culture 7, 8, 9 Praew Jik, The Sleep Sessions, No John (3″ cds 2007 industrial culture)

A while ago I received an email of Industrial Culture from the UK if I was interested in reviewing some of their material. Last week three 3″ cds fell into my mailbox. I think Artur of Industrial Culture has read my noise reviews and decided to send me three of Industrial Culture’s noise releases (they also have “drone”, “dark ambient”, “ambient/industrial”, etc.) I can be quite short about these three minis of about 15 minutes: they are not my kind of noise. It is all extremely violent, unstructured, high-pitched, earcracking noise. No John from Belgium has a bit more variety and also has some low-frequency, more industrial and more ambient material, the the other two releases only work on my nerves. Perhaps a bad guess of Industrial Culture about my taste or just bad luck, but I must say that the other styles available from their website, the ambient is too monotous for me… I know, I have a difficult taste, sorry!
