Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient, death-industrial, noise-ambient.
Content: “Fiende” is not exactly similar to “Fullstendig Brennt”, but you rapidly will recognize similar sound ingredients. There’s a similar fascination about how manipulating sounds and creating noises, which has been mixed with pure industrial sound treatments and still a flavor of ritual music. The work moves from haunting atmospheres in heavy industrial outbursts. The three last cuts are absolutely genius!
+ + + : I think it always is a bit of challenge composing a new album after a masterpiece. I still have a little preference for “Fullstendig Brennt”, but this work reveals a similar quality. The ritual touch running through “Blod Fra Helvete” is a great and noticeable aspect I discovered. But I can also talk about the furious industrial blasts ending in a boiling noise-mould at “Poszthum”. This work sounds hard and rough, mixing impressive industrial sounds and rhythms together with ritual passages and constant noise treatments.
– – – : The noise parts are sometimes maybe too explicit, but still accessible. It’s a part of their creation, but not necessarily my favorite aspect of the work. So I hope they’ll not lose their creative mind into a noise abyss.
Conclusion: I can simply confirm that Dødsmaskin is one of the most talented and creative projects I’ve heard at the wider fields of industrial music for quite a long time. This duo has something different and definitely exciting!
Best songs: “Blod Fra Helvete”, “Posthum”, “Den Nye Døden”, “Syndrom”.
