Luftwaffe – “Solipsistica Nihilisti” – [Punch Records]

10″ follow up to their recent full length CD from this American martial/industrial noise outfit with members from Ostara, Valence and Gnomonclast. This is great for fans of Boyd Rice, Death in June and Aleister Crowley which leads to somewhat questionable political leanings with sinister themes like dictatorship, war, mass executions and general human evil. Lyrics can be a little straightforward but definitely reflect blatant misanthropy. Supporting the thematic material is a diabolical musical underbelly of decrepit bass rumblings and serrated gritty noise with some instrumental appearances, all punctuated by driving, repetitive military beats. Dubbed vocal samples creep out from the terror recounting fascist speeches and a subjugated populace. Tracks 4, 8 and 10 offer a brief respite from the march to oblivion with more folk/ambient sounds. Album ends with an apocalyptic ballad set to swirls of synth complete with samples of crying women. Happy night terrors!
