Ilya Kuryakin – Noisepollution (Digital Album – Ilya Kuryakin)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Industrial, power-noise.

Background/Info: All I know about this production is that it has been composed by a Belgian artist based in Ghent.

Content: “Noisepollution” features 10 tracks, which are inspired by power-noise –for the hardest cuts, and electro-industrial & indus-trance –for the other remaining tracks. The power-noise tracks are rather classic ones while the main part of the tracklist is different and more sophisticated. The cadence is slower; the loops remain rather repetitive, but revealing cool sound treatments.

+ + + : The power-noise freaks will be pleased discovering songs such as “Noise In The Head” and “Barotrauma”, but I personally prefer the other tracks. The trance-driven cuts such as “Factoryslaves” and “Diones Sunset” feature an interesting and powerful approach that will get you into dance. These compositions have something shamanic and might appeal for lovers of modern industrial music.

– – – : Most of the tracks are rather short during and sometimes feel as snippets or a demo.

Conclusion: This artist has something interesting; there’s a potential hiding behind this production, which is comparable to some more professional productions from the Hands label.

Best songs: “Tenebrae”, “Diones Sunset”, “Factoryslaves”, “Devour”.

Rate: (7).

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
