Album Review

Iron Lung – “White Glove Test” – [Prank]

mann   5/8/2013   A Library, CD

Progressive power violence from the culture’s no gimmick mainstays. The first CD labeled “White Glove Test” the music version which is guitars, vocals, drums is the definitive work here, while the second CD labeled “Finds More Filth” the noise version which plays at equal length was recorded while playing along to the finished first CD so the end result can be albums played simultaneously, separately, or mixed in and out in the listeners never ending quest for the “best” version to them personally. It can be whatever you want. The result is interactive power violence that gets buck like a handcart kicked around by a triceratops inside a linear accelerator tunnel; it piles and stammers, slackens and dins forth obliviously into an austere profusion of cutting riffs, magnetic tom assaults and shouting like it’s all they got. The best example of the music version marrying the noise version is the run of Hidden Task, Brutal Supremacy I-III, and Plasma Separatist, moments of silence that were once there in the solo listen are fractured with uncomfortable voltage that gives a different cohesiveness to the work that could also be called claustrophobia. When it comes to PV these dudes art the smartest in the game (band-wise, label-wise, DI-Yze, launch a hog leg and get swivey on the wheels. Mann the General.
