Paal Nilssen-Love - battery of total limb annihilation
Massimo Pupillo - low-end bowel chainsaw
Lasse Marhaug - electronic torture devices
Recorded live at the Next Festival in Bratislava on Deember 3rd 2011.
I am not sure if I ever heard of Massimo Pupillo, who plays 'low end bowel chainsaw' on this record, but since a lot seems tongue in cheek here, it might also be a guitar with effects. Everything here says: we poke fun at those who play with the stereotypes of the world of industrial music. One side is called 'First Offence' and has titles as 'Necrophiliac Cunnilingus', 'Rope For The Undead' and 'Vomit Buffet', while 'Second Coming' has 'Rib Cage Of Rotting Horror', 'Broken Spine Crushed Cranium' and 'Forest Of Disembowelment'. Nilssen-Love plays 'battery of total limb annihilation' and Marhaug 'electronic torture devices'. I think I summed all of the inside jokes here, but what about the music you may ask? Ah, now well, that's something that fits well, except that it is not a joke of some kind. But I can imagine that 'post concert/dressing room' they said, that's was a great hell of a racket, wow, almost like industrial music' and so the idea came to be to present it like that, but then over the top. There are of course not really three pieces per side, but just two sides of some excellent free improvised noise music. Loud, vicious and unrelentness. And curiously: it doesn't sound like good ol' industrial music, but more like good ol' free jazz from a very noise end of the spectrum. Think Borbetomagus but then without the saxophone and lots of drums. An ear cleansing exercise. Excellent.
