Genre/Influences: Death-industrial, experimental, power-electronics.
Background/Info: Nooit is a Ukrainian solo-project driven by ‘Non’. This album seems to be the debut work of Nooit.
Content: The opening cut is for sure one of the hardest parts of the album featuring 6 tracks. It’s a heavy power-electronic assault driven by heavy screams in the native language of the artist. There’re similar tracks coming up, but Nooit also reveals a more minimal- and experimental side made of icy sound treatments and dark, buzzing sound waves.
+ + + : I like the minimal passages running through this work, which mainly excel at the instrumental “OA03”. But there also is a great and strong dark, tormenting spirit, which comes back in all cuts. I here especially recommend “OA05”. A last aspect I like is the kind of controlled noise power.
– – – : This is the kind of ‘extreme’ release, which is mainly suited for a very restricted number of music lovers. It however is a rather accessible work in this music genre. I just regret the tracks aren’t really exploding with maybe a little bit more power and sonic violence.
Conclusion: Nooit stands for an interesting sound experiment in an extreme and difficult music genre!
Best songs: “OA05”, “OA03”.
