Genre/Influences: Power-noise, industrial-techno.
Content: The main basis of those ladies sound is clearly driven by hard power-noise music. That’s already what we could experience at their debut work. The sound is now also featuring a few techno influences, getting the production more trance-like. I experienced this work as more varied. Next to ‘classical’ hard and distorted power-noise cuts Cacophoneuses has created a wider sonic horizon where it feels good to dance…
+ + + : “Chaos Theory” moves on there where “The Myth Of Lorelei” stopped. It means that this album goes a step further, exploring new ideas while getting the sound more diversified. The main parts remain however totally addicted to power-noise. Those girls are composing music with a huge dose of testosterone. I especially like the evolution into trance/rave fields.
– – – : I noticed a few details in the global production (like a fade out on one of the tracks), which are a little bit amateuristic, but Cacophoneuses is clearly not into subtle treatments, but into hard power!
Conclusion: I thought testosterone was typically male-like, but those ladies are the exception to the rule. They’re driven you mad with their “Chaos Theory” and I think they’ll make a lot of guys jealous.
Best songs: “Nemesis”, “Sweet Bitter”, “Damage Control”, Take Over”, “X Marks The Spot”.
