Cactus – “Night Is Rising On The World” – [Resipiscent Records]

Like the plant after which this band is named, the four tracks on this CD are thorny and not at all comforting. Each lasts about ten minutes, and each is guitar noise in pure form. Although I know nothing about the noise genre, I tried hard to make sense of what sounded to me like a head-splitting version of the spin cycle on an industrial washing machine. At times I could make out rhythms, but mostly I just wished I could watch the music being performed live, because I would have more appreciation for what goes into its making. I may not love this, but I do respect it.
