Ultraspießer * Tight Fisted Bastard (2011)

A rather ‘mysterious’ Dark Matters release. However this project seems to have more material available, I cannot find it on Discogs. The Dark Matters list on Discogs seems rather complete, but no Ultraspießer. “Tight Fisted Bastard” is a weird release. Weird soundscapes, slightly noisy, sometimes a bit ritualistic, hard to describe actually. There are guitars in it, drumming, distorted sounds, so in a way it is one kind of drone (contrary to the low frequency dark ambient explanation of that term). The release is somewhat interesting, but not really my thing. It is nice to hear what weird music there is out there though.

Dark Matter * Mo.N.D. (cdr 2011)

A while ago I ran into Radical Matters. A label in noise with a fairly large download section. The debut release of Dark Matter is rightly an “ambient noise” release. One long ‘noisescape’ which is pretty noise and pretty dark. Here and there there is a more violent sound. In the beginning I find this release quite enjoyable. I often like these dark ‘wall of sound’ kind of noise releases. After a while things remain the same and it seems that the atmosphere goes down. Not bad, not great.
