Whirling Hall Of Knives Celestrian Ferroxxide
8/10 Brian Staff review, 25 November 2010
I'll do a tape now. Yes, they still make them. Sure they'll be trying to flog Phil Collins new album on cassette in 10 years time, when he'll be back in Vegas in his cunty shiny suit playing to all the psychos, rapists & paedos that still like him. The cheerfully monikered Whirling Hall of Knives make some pretty damn fine noise. This is stealthy stuff though. Not just a wall of hideous sludge & evil power electronics from these kids. There's something creepingly apocalyptic about this. A deep, foreboding pulse mongs periodically away in the background like a metronomic warning to the nation as this windy vortex of caustic despair builds slowly in urgency. Then take (what I approximate to be) the sound of elephants from an escaping zoo & frantic air-horns and hear them mingle worriedly, blended effortlessly into a steadily escalating, increasingly static-doused cyber-shitstorm. This is truly great stuff that really takes you on a proper journey, albeit one that may induce panic attacks & mania. And i'm listening to it relatively quietly too.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.

Related artist data is provided by Spotify. Why?
- They are much, much better at writing clever algorithms than us.
- They have much, much more data to set their algorithms on.
We think this is a better option than stinking up your browsing experience here on Norman Records with a crummy implementation of our own. (We only wish we were this clever: Artist Explorer.)
Spotify generate recommendations based on the listening patterns of their massive audience, so they are generally pretty good. The data does throw up some odd combinations though. So, if you do spot anything daft have a little chuckle at their robots but please don't contact us about it. There is nowt we can do.
