Jute Gyte – “Old Ways” – [Jeshimoth Entertainment]


it is sometimes surprising how the most evil and disturbed of projects can come from the most unassuming people, but then again it’s the polite ones you usually have to worry about; like Adam Kalmbach here, a college student out of southwestern Missouri, experimental BM project that is sure to polarize listeners. cracked decrepit guitar tones creak against the maelstrom of drone swelling and spilling in harmonious fury, with buried drum machine marching through the void and anguished vocals recounting an ancient war of mass slaughter. electronics and treatments figure more prominently than on other BM projects, sure to piss off purists and blurring the divide between metal and noise: overwhelming buzzing distortion and delay; especially with Round falling into an almost industrial goth beat. pushing even further outside classification and harkening deeper into the primeval is the mandolin Interlude echoing through chambers of memory. the album slogs along, rarely traveling above mid-tempo, making it and even more painful and tortuous test of perseverance, suffering through the sludge onslaught of Peace and into the discordant flogging of brittle guitars and psychotic feedback of Snail into the epic finale aptly titled Death. with the degree of misanthropy displayed here few are meant to enjoy this sort of torment and abuse, but for the sonic masochists such as myself this is pure agonizing pleasure
