Artist: Kenji Siratori (@)
Title: Sickness For The 21st Century
Format: CD
Label: SkullLine (@)
Distributor: SkullLine
Rated: *****
Only a very few months after his debut release "Death Creature" for the German SkullLine label, the Japanese Cyberpunk-/Ambient-artist KENJI SIRATORI returns with a new album. Again strictly limited to only 50 exemplars, KENJI offers a musically onslaught quite different to his mentioned debut. Although "Sickness..." still compliments with long and static Dark-Ambient-like drones, the overall outfit is much harder-minded. He could integrate a wide-ranging distortion/overdrive effect manipulation on his long running tracks, again simply named in a row of "I" to "VI". A nightmarish and yet very sinister sounding experience. Which brings him nearer to some Cold Meat Industry acts, but mainly a sound outfit which avoids to deal with any beautiful thing of the world. No music for the faint-hearted for sure, and the end of the rope still isn’t reached for KENJI. Tracks are ranging between 5 and 16 minutes, this album comes out with a semi-glossy cover and it is hand-numbered. A collectors item soon for sure, so act up ASAP.
