Title: Outstretch Your Hand For The Impress Of Truth
Format: CD
Label: Cold Spring (@)
Rated: *****
This new Cold Spring's release is from an english project that could be roughly classified as post-industrial; the main structural element is the drone, however the short duration of the track and the other main element, noise, shifts the result from a static form to a moving one.
The drone of "The Flavour Of The Weak" opens this release as a background for a fistful of sample and noises which slowly became the center of the track. "Your Flag Stands For Nothing" is based on a loop that is the base of the first and the third part of the track while the second is a interlude for samples of string instruments. "Cave In We Are Complete" lies in the threshold between drone and noise music. "Outstretch Your Hand For The Impress Of Truth" starts and ends with a slow guitar while his development is based on noisy samples. "The World Keeps Turning (On Me)" uses noises as a underlining of the drones rather than in a dialectic. "Of Talons And Teeth" is as an almost metal track masked as an industrial track. "Paint Her Face To Simulate The Bloom" uses a gentle piano to escape the harshness of the noises. "The Nameless Saint" is a piano track masked as an industrial track. "Black Deeds From Dead Seeds" closes this release with a drone colored by meditative samples.
While the result is often out of focus and the tracks are based upon a couple of structures, the result reveals the search from a personal sound that needs only further refinement to produce something important. Nice.
