8/10 Brian Staff review, 01 December 2010
I feel like I'm in a dark place musically today. The best thing I've heard all week is by the Swedish sludgecore legends Brainbombs and my first two reviews have imposed the combined effect of a debauched nightmare & the essence of a scary crumbling mental hospital on my psyche. The first act on this rather terrific split CD has been compared loosely to Throbbing Gristle & I can hear why. Juddering mangled retro-electronic weirdness, stealthily monged rhythms, deviant sounds, creepy lyrics, druggy bloopy atmospherics from the first lot. Frightful dark ambiance & sludgy, treacly apocalyptic sound-scapery from the other ones. It sounds a little like early V/VM (particularly the initial The Stranger & Caretaker gear before he got a better computer & imbued his music with his contempt for this beautiful isle). I love the decayed synth sounds & muffled industrialisms that leech horribly onto your mind. I ultimately feel like I'm on a the ghost of a rotting slave ship with a steaming drunk Daniel Lopatin as the black-toothed pirate whipping the groaning tatters of his disenfranchised skeletal crew. Cool!
