NDE - KRIEG BLUT EHRE ASCHE (CD by Cold Spring)
IRON FIST OF THE SUN - BEHAVIOURAL DECLINE (CD by Cold Spring)
WICKED KING WICKER - GOD IS BUSY SAVE YOURSELF (CD by Cold Spring)
NDE is a Belgian project that belongs to the darkest spheres of electronic music. The artwork of the cover is pure grey-tone colors without any warmth or happiness. There are no sign of contact details or reference to information sources on the cover to the band. Furthermore the band has no myspace or website, leaving the band in the deep underground. In that sense the surroundings nicely fit the musical containment of present release titled "Krieg blut ehre asche" (In English: War blood honour ashes). The album is the debut from NDE and a very nice one indeed! Eight pieces of sonic brutality is what you get here. Deep rumbling drones of power electronics moves along screeching harsh noise and martial percussions meanwhile the vocal side consists of evil screams and guttural expressions with much reference to the black metal-scene. To strengthen the dark atmosphere samples of distant voices and subtle orchestration leaves the listener cold and isolated. A very interesting work appealing to listeners of darkest electronics. Pure evil!
Next album from Cold Spring also belongs to the harsh side of electronic expressions. As was the case with aforementioned NDE, anger and extreme aggression saturates the compositions of the album. In comparison to NDE, Wicked King Wicker moves in more abstract spheres with no sign of rhythm texture and almost non-existing vocals though signs of human roar seems to be somewhere in the tick fog of sheer brutality. Last album in the line comes from British power electronics artist Iron Fist Of The Sun. Present album titled "Behavioural decline" separates from the aforementioned albums with its old school oriented approach to the noise scene recalling the early days of Industrial pioneering. As you listen to the eight tracks of the album associations towards compatriot legends in Whitehouse shines through, though there are plenty of moments with high-tech violence to prove its existence in the presence of contemporary harsh noise scene. Again the vocals are a dominating parameter to create the brutality, but the vocal sound on this one is more human in expression with some pure shouting without the witchery hellish black metal screams of first reviewed album from NDE. Three great new exercises in extreme aggression from British essential label Cold Spring. (Niels Mark) Address: http:///
