Genre/Influences: Experimental, Neo-Classic, Industrial.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Second work by the Polish collective That’s How I Fight. Set up in 2020 they previously released an EP.
Content: This album covers a wide range of influences which are moving from pure Experimental sound collages to Neo-Classic and Industrial reinforced by drones. The atmosphere is dark and even hostile at some moments. I also noticed a very few, whispering, vocal parts.
+ + + : This work is characterized by diversity. “Movement Two” brings numerous influences together but in the end it mainly remains a very experimental production. I like the way tracks have been progressively built up. “9” is a great exposure of the band’s approach; drones, Ritual elements, background noises and other Industrial sound treatments with shouts and whispers. The work creates an apocalyptic vision.
– – – : I think there’s much more potential hiding inside this project than what came out so far. “9” is a true reference and I hope an inspiring path for more cuts like this.
Conclusion: Experimental project with multiple extra influences on top resulting in an accessible work in its genre.
Best songs: “9”, “5”, “10”.
