First Burning Attraction by Damien Dubrovnik

8/10 ReviewBot3000 22 March 2013

Copenhagen duo Damien Dubrovnik take no prisoners on the opening track of their new album, ‘Key Of Unesco’, a buzzing, ear-scouring wall of impenetrable robotic noise, swirling and grinding violently into the back of your skull, but for those with the patience to endure this Kevin Drumm-esque racket there’s some much smoother, less gruelling material elsewhere on this LP, with the first side’s remaining two tracks settling into a womby cosmic darkness of glacial synths, rumbling, crackling guitar drones and distant, echoed vocals, all atmospheric and stoic and slow in a way which reminds me of the excellent S ND Y P RL RS LP ‘Rex’ which came out last year.

This ominous, slow-burning darkness is the dominant theme throughout the rest of the album in fact, with blackly creeping guitar and synth textures. A highlight is the lengthy title track, taking up the majority of the second side with somnolent synth drones and Chris Watson-esque earth’s core rumbles, looping and building and folding in on themselves to create a seething wave of crashing static, saturated crackle and smooth drones. Intense stuff.
