Neuropathic Force Feedback – “Experiment IV” – [Steinklang]

nff

Nothing like a bit of German Power Electronics! This 2005 EP on Austria’s Steinklang Industries is not a far cry from the work of precursors like Whitehouse, Genocide Organ, Anenzephalia and Operation Cleansweep, but it’s fun to listen to nonetheless. Mostly hissing, shrieking, oscillating bursts of noise like a synthesizer having a nervous breakdown, densely layered. No discernible voices, except samples on side A of a Gulf War veteran discussing the effects of experimental performance-enhancing drugs on his combat-zone psyche. The unsettling tension on the A side is more rhythmic than B, which ends up meandering into super-amplified cricket sounds and good old-fashioned feedback torture. NFF seems to be a side project of the better-known outfit Sektion B. Violent, inaccessible and uncompromising selections, too soon over.
