Japanese moise mongering experimentalists Endon are on a constant mission to be the most extreme act out of Tokyo, and they manage it with mixing the blistering speed and unexpected grandeur of Liturgy, the raw crusty hardcore of Oathbreaker with guttural growls and screeches that’d make Mike Patton wince. Recorded by Converge’s Kurt Ballou. Intense stuff.
Yeah, this is completely insane…. “Catastrophic noise metal” is pretty much spot on. Japanese group Endon create an almost constant state of confusion, throughout Mama there are parts where you latch onto a riff or theme and it is very quickly snatched away in a wall of shrieks and noises. Think a dirtier version of Naked City. Produced by Atsuo from Boris.
