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.

Distel and ‘the new music’

Before Bandcamp and Soundcloud became the way for new bands to present themselves, they used Myspace. I never used Myspace much, but one time (in 2008/9 or so) I was searching around a bit and found out that there is a Dutch project that tagged itself "angstpop". I liked the music a lot, but even saw him/them live before the debut 7" came out in 2010. (more…)

WGT 2014

As always, the Wave Gotik Treffen was a nice party. Besides free visits to museums, including an exposition of the recently deceased Hans Rudolf Giger with pieces from the Giger museum in Switserland, the 'heathen village' and the marked in the Agra hall, there were of course plenty of bands to choose from. Sometimes too much, so I had to skip a couple, but the bands we did see are: (more…)

Thot

Thot is a strange band from Belgium making noisy, industrial rock. Not always brilliant, but they have got some moody tracks.

Left Lane Cruiser

An all-American band that makes a filthy kind of blues rock. The vocals sound like they are shouted into a bad microphone and the music goes from upto rock to more traditional blues. The band has some very nice songs.
