- Now I'm Just a Number: Soundtracks 1993-94 by Black Rain
1 review. Write a review for us »
Black Rain, Blackest ever Black, Black sleeve. This is the first ever vinyl outing for this previously obscure post industrial band who apparently started off as a death metal band before transforming into a post industrial electronic minimilist sound. This is the best of their instrumental work which covered the years 94-95. Its remarkably modern sounding, reminding me of the type of minimal instrumental stuff that slips out on the Thrill Jockey label from time to time such as Oval and Rome. Standout tracks use rhythmic almost Joy Division like drum patterns adding eerie soundscapes and a real sense of space for such dark intense compositions. There's a real filmic quality to the work and its no surprise to learn that Black Rain have been involved in soundtrack work over the years, there's a sense of the 'Bladerunner' soundtrack in the shifting patterns and breathless beats creating a dark end-of-the-world terrifying sci-fi vibe. At other points its kind of like an organic take on techno music with 4/4 kick drums and dark chilly synths.
