Kristus Kut

Kristus Kut * Oneironaut (2012)

Kristus Kut is an extremely active Dutch project of an even more extremely active man. KK releases tons of releases in all kinds of different ways. Apparently “Oneironaut” was supposed to be released on a label, but in the end became a ‘name your price’ Bandcamp release. I do not think I have heard much of the music since the 2008 Bone Structure cd, so I decided to check out the new album, especially since it is announced as being: “full off tribal noise created by acoustic instruments”. Just as on the other album that I reviewed, this one contains good tracks and annoying ones. I am in particular no fond of the over-use of porn samples (and themes) which tend to get weary quickly, but there are also very nice and dark soundscapes and some nice industrial noise tracks to be found and indeed, also tribal elements. Since you can name your price and you can listen to the album on Bandcamp first, you might want to have a look at this weird noisy album.

Kristus Kut * I (cdr 2008 bone structure)

I thought that I already had something of this Dutch project somewhere, but maybe not. The label describes this release as “dark industrial soundscapes”, but description is way off in my opinion. KK makes strange industrial noise music. Sometimes it is a bit technoish, sometimes a bit punky, sometimes more digicore, but always industrial noise. There are ‘vocals’ which gives this release something extra, especially because the ‘lyrics’ are in Dutch. KK uses a bit too many high frequencies for my poor ears. KK has a sound that I have not heard so far. Unfortunately KK not only seems to have the need to shock musically, but also thematically. I don’t like the projects name or several of the titles of releases and tracks. Not that I get shocked or something, but I don’t see the use of naming a project “Christus cunt”, or a release “offering whore”. Anyway, the lyrics on this album seem to have been taken from the Bible or so and the weird extreme kind of industrial music is at times very good, so I guess I have to forgive the young man (?) for the rest.
