Album Review

Aufgehoben – “Fragments of The Marble Plan” – [Holy Mountain]

abacus   6/3/2015   12-inch, A Library


first recording since their first performance in 2006; thriving in obscurity this british group carries an aggression that executes more in precision than power. contrasts of near silence, crackle and sizzle implodes into steel grinding misery. guitar, two drums, and a whole bunch of metal and stone to drill with electronics make up the industrial instrumentation of this group; rhythmic less in the percussive sense and more in the presence of absence, with more subtlety than pure assault, carefully contained incursions into aural terror. the promo sticker on the front stated “this music is war…get a helmet” which may be more hype than necessary, but this is damn scary nonetheless.
