Curse of The Golden Vampire – “Curse of The Golden Vampire” – [D H R Digital Hardcore Re]
This is a 1998 collaboration between Alec Empire and Techno Animal. There are some pretty typical and expected elements here from a DHR release – a very noisy and industrial sounding album with experimental tones. Elements of hardcore, breakcore and noise from a post-Atari Teenage Riot Empire; plenty of hard breaks and distortion, but it’s a far slower bpm than what one would expect from DHR. The tracks here are in the 70-90 bpm range, creating an apocalyptic industrial soundscape of spaced out, distorted hip hop and downtempo. This is most likely suitable only for the headstrong fans of harsh noise and breakcore – not for the weak or timid, you will find no shelter in these beats.
