Death Unit – “Only Death Is Certain” – [Hospital Productions]

death-unit

Death Unit is Chris Corsano, Carlos Giffoni, Brian Sullivan (Mouthus) and Trevor Tremaine (Hair Police). Released by the venerable Hospital Productions and limited to only 325 copies.

Beautifully nasty improv jazz-noise with dueling drum kits, blasting guitar fuzz and screeching electronics. Blood-stained, rumbling and pummelling.

“Smut” starts off with low resonating electronic rumbles, like getting a buzz-cut from a lawn-mower. Before long the drum explosions start to land, with increasing frequency and fervor, driving the piece with broken rhythms and cymbal punches. Last to the party are the high pitched screeches and static blasts, squealing and squiggling in all directions.

“AIDS Death 666″ is coated (maybe internationally?) in crinkly popping surface noise. The song starts slow, with just the static over faint guitar musings and occasional drum fills and electronic bursts. The feedback slowly builds and the squealing buzzes become more focused and impatient, demanding your full attention. Soon the drums coalesce and the real destruction begins, coming in punishing forceful waves and only stopping once complete demolition is achieved.
