- Regression by Nate Young

I reviewed this album when it came out on CD back in 2009 but my review seems to have been destroyed by the Gremlins in the Norman Records mainframe. If I ever get my hands on those pesky little green twats…
So anyway, this was the first of three ‘Regression’ volumes and seven or eight years down the line, it holds up pretty well. It’s most certainly worth copping if you missed it first time around or are some weirdo that refuses to acknowledge CDs and only buys stuff on vinyl.
In many ways ‘Regression’ preempted the splurge of fantasy horror soundtracks that followed but where most have a very glossy 80’s sheen this has a far more rough ass/ primitive electronic sound that was then incorporated into some Wolf Eyes material that followed. Although not intended to be a fictional score, you can well imagine these sounds backing the disturbing moving images of some banned, festering VHS tape. Within the grooves lurk a bubbling mess of gloopy, gurgling electronic slime, metallic clanging and wooden creaking, nauseous claustrophobic bass, insectoid ticks and an overwhelming sense of dread. He even busts out the drum machine on the final untitled cut, for some bleak snuff movie techno.
