8/10 Mike Staff review, 17 April 2012

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be writing a review or a health warning for this one. Mauthausen Orchestra were/was active in the early- to mid-'80s making unsettling dystopian power electronics. There are plenty of pure harsh tones here, laid out in a kind of concretey mish-mash of flutter and scree. It never goes into total noise overdrive for that New Blockaders level of unlistenability though, and actually listening to it now it sounds quite restrained and tastefully done, exploring the relationships between the pitches and timbres at their command without overcrowding the soundstage. There's a noise that sounds a bit like a drone record being sped up and slowed down which Phil thinks sounds like the power-electronics equivalent of being in a little hut with a crazy storm raging outside. Or imagine if you took all the actual rock elements out of Hawkwind and just had the whooshy noises. It doesn't sound too dated, though...I think it totally holds its own next to the dark ambient/power-electronics stuff being made today with its shrill, textured atmospherics. So yeah, if you like crunchy grating electronic whooshy noises you're in for a right old treat, basically.
