Genre/Influences: Experimental, electronics, ambient.

Background/Info: Old mates Daniel Bressanutti and Dirk Bergen are back on track unleashing this new work featuring 3 tracks. “Mutanten Maschine” has been originally released on cassette format on Wool-E-Tapes. The band also self-released the album on USB-stick and now brings a CD-version limited to 200 copies. The CD format features one extra song.

Content: Nothing But Noise sounds like an electronic sound laboratory. It covers different influences and is mainly characterized by the deep, vibrating and low sound frequencies, which are like a trademark for Daniel B (and still noticeable in the Front 242 releases).

“Mutanten Maschine” sounds a bit in the line of the album “From Berlin To Brussel”. It’s dark and astral-like, sometimes a little less repetitive and also featuring dreamy-like passages. The songs remain totally instrumental-like; no vocals or spoken samplings featured. Notice by the way the third track is an alternative version from one of the original versions.

+ + + : The deep bass sound remains one of the most noticeable aspects of the work. It sounds a bit like the Daniel B trademark, but Nothing But Noise is much more than this. There’s a nice twist between different sound inputs (mainly analogue-like). It also is a work with a visual appeal.

– – – : The slow progression from the tracks sometimes creates monotonous passages.

Conclusion: Nothing But Noise remains an abyssal sound experience. It has something evasive, but still creating a suffocating effect through its dark approach.

Best songs: “Mutanten Maschine 1”, “Rückmutation”.

Rate: (7½).
