Jazkamer – “Metal Music Machine ” – [Ass Piss]
Jazkamer-“Metal Music Machine” (Ass Piss Records)
2004 recording from Norwegian experi-metal maniacs previously known mostly for their electronic free noise output. This time around they employ notorious Enslaved vocalist Ivar Bjornson to signify the change. Each track discerns from the other from start to finish while holding true to the darkness: Side 1=TRK 1-Strikes quickly with a stunning fury of repetitive annihilating napalm firestorm riffs and super heavy shrapnel percussion set on rapid-fire. TRK 2-Suddenly relents into slow erupting molten lava flow sustained chords.
Side 2=TRK 3-Only vocal track with a frantic hardcore edge with gripping changes and turns. TRK 4-(Title Track) Shocking, twisted and bizarre with tape manipulations reigning chaos of distortion, shrill feedback and piercing vocal static with an ice cold ending. TRK 5-Starts w/ one continuous riff building with tension as creeping distortion sets in and takes hold. A second repetitive tone driven axe moves in as distortion fades briefly only to return with increased strength awash in drowning waves. Then suddenly its over. -AFremont
