Aha! I knew it was only a matter of time before I stumbled upon something truly weird in this week's review mountain. This LP from Kaumwald has five tracks of creeping, grating, clanging dark ambient electronica with touches of post-dub, kind of like Forest Swords' sinister ambience crossed with the visceral dark noise drift of Ela Orleans & Skitter's recent 'Le Flechettes' LP.

Side A opens with the brief and twitchy 'Fetemes', which grinds and groans and glitches like a long-dormant robot flickering into life before the lengthy 'Lethe', which takes up the bulk of this side, drops softly into a Coil-esque landscape of hissing static and industrial drones over a pulsating bass drum beat, with various clicky, echoed rhythms and mechanical shudders gradually encroaching on the hypnotic ambience.

This music would make excellent incidental music in a 'Terminator' film...in fact the whole album gives me that feeling of machines developing a malevolent intelligence of their own. I wonder if that was the intention. On side B things do seem to get more accessible...or am I just becoming acclimatised to this horrifying soundworld I'm trapped in?
