I already own this on CD, but can I justify buying it again on vinyl? Probably not considering I have three children to buy christmas presents for but I'm currently suffering from a severe Editions Mego vinyl addiction for which I fear there is no cure... Now I don't think I'd be exaggerating if I was to state that this album, in many circles is considered to be a "noise" masterpiece and the one that made lord Drumm a household name amongst racket worshipers. Originally released back in 2002 it hasn't aged a bit, still sounds orgasmic, totally relevant and therefore really is worthy of this lavish gold foil debossed gatefold vinyl package. Beginning with 'Impotent Hummer' Drumm paints a bleak and dense sonic landscape with throbbing drones and super rich textures that evolve into a full on shitstorm. Revisiting the audio, again and again it still manages to hypnotize me every time, to the point where I can focus on nothing else. When I'm completely submerged it's effects are almost paralyzing. 'Turning Point' is three and a half minutes of overload with rumbling bass and static scree along with what I think is an analogue synth crunching away a dislocated machine rhythm which recalls the joy I'd have late at night listening, in a darkened room, to my hard drive de-fragmenting. Then things peak in intensity and abruptly end. 'Hitting The Pavement' goes for the jugular with extreme frequency exploitation and filthy fuzzed out nasty evil distortion. Then we get to 'The Inferno' which is a relentless attack on the senses. I just know that piping this into my ears will probably cause long-term damage but who cares, as when this takes hold it's kind of like enjoying being beaten up... an epic skull frazzler. To me it sounds futuristic too recalling the elements that appeal to me from guys like Hiroshi Hasegawa. What's particularly great about the record is that after such an uncompromising assault the closing track 'Cloudy' offers some time to heal and reflect. A gorgeous drone piece that would pave the way for some of Drumm's future creations. Never before has a record's title been so befitting of its content. No discerning record collection should exist without 'Sheer Hellish Miasmah'.
