Cthulhu Detonator ‎* Infernal Machines (online album 2012)

With websites such as Bandcamp it is much easier for artists to put out their music. “Infernal Machines” is one of those ‘name your price download releases’. I have the idea that especially in the field of noise (coming from whatever scene) there is more available than anyone can listen to. A downpart is that much of these truely independent releases, again especially in the field of noise, are not very imaginable or interesting. Chthulhu Detonator is from an artist who also makes/made IDM and folkrock and recently started to experiment with more extreme sounds. The music is built on what he calls “noise jams” and that is indeed a good description of the sound. Chthulhu Detonator sounds like an ever evolving sequence of ideas. This sometimes leads to a lack of consistancy, sometimes to interesting ideas, but to my ears the first result predominates somewhat. There is another problem for my ears, Chthulhu Detonator uses way too many headache frequencies. There are a few parts in which a nice, low frequency brings a darker atmosphere to the music, but the high frequencies prevail. “Infernal Machines” is not very extreme, the sound is mostly what I describe as “ambient noise” with a few harscher moments. If you want to hear a new noise project, you can listen to the entire album on Bandcamp and buy it for whatever price you think it is worth.

Most played music in 2013

Last.fm keeps track of what I listen to. I “scrobble” most of what I listen to, so this is fairly accurate. Not “scrobbled” is what I hear in the car. In any case, just to give you an idea, here are my most played artists in the last 12 months: 1 A Place to Bury [...]
