Here’s some sonic Body Horror for ya, courtesy of some fresh blood from somewhere around Manchester. Apparently much of the source material comes from a pack of early Slipknot samples, which Croww has mutilated and reassembled into these Frankenstein, mutant, industrial/noise/grindcore/drill & bass informed tracks. They're bolted together as a ‘MechaMix’ and comprise the entire face of this single sided record. This is dark, futuristic and nightmarish stuff that has me thinking of classic Japanese Body Horror flick Tetsuo. The vivid sound design is like prosthetic body parts, wires and circuitry ripping out of human bodies in a bloody mess of metal and flesh. It gets pretty hardcore too, like a bunch of Dutch footie hooligans in some aircraft hanger at a gabbar rave getting stormed by an army of cyborgs and subjected to mechanical torture then dragged bag to some filthy laboratory and subjected to a series of biological tests. They only anaesthetic - what they’ve already shoved up their noses at the rave, so we get to hear them occasionally choke and gag.
It’s all pretty grim - like a good dystopian science fiction movie -- albeit one that you wouldn't want to be watching while troughing down your scran. Edition of 300 copies on clear wax.
