Album Review

Lord Time – “Black Hole At The End of The Tunnel” – [Universal Consciousness]

abacus   12/13/2013   12-inch, A Library


As the title suggests, Sandor Finta aka Andorkappen brings us another glimpse into realms of hopelessness and disavowal under his moniker Lord Time. His background is relatively diverse, coming from LA black metal trio Harassor but also part of harsh noise trio KILT, we drift from pounding blast beats and bristly guitars into clouds of murky drone and emerge among swaths of psychedelic soundscapes. 20 short tracks smashed together into 2 side longs that move through all varieties of noise, metal and ambience. A dark and dreary dirge from a decrepit, deserted dungeon will boil over into a black maelstrom of feedback only to subside, gliding into brittle guitar tones. Sometimes the sound veers to a more electronic timbre, with pulsing ritualistic repetition, other times the wall of guitar teeters under its own heaving mass with only the hollow echoing drums to hold it upright. The album throughout has a sharp, metallic and very lo-fi sound giving it a bleak and despondent disposition. Each side with their own harrowing outro; side A a haunting organ piece and side B a plodding piano march. Either way you go you’ll get shivers staring into his icy eyes. Might as well just sit tight in your dank tunnel for eternity…
