Album Review

Bizarre Uproar / Death Key [coll] – [Audial Decimation Records]

Bizarre Uproar and Death Key deliver two agonizing sides of pure noise straight from hell. Here you will find some terrorizing sounds, though the noise is not saturated, there is use of negative space here. Both sides are about 16 minutes of grating, unpleasant, apocalyptic noise. Bizarre Uproar creates a waking nightmare. It sounds like death. Riddled with the screams of people being burned alive. Sticky with the static crackle of destruction. These sounds are possessed and demented. Quite painful to listen to. Death Key creates a dark dronescape in two movements. A storm of static and low gritty moans, not loud, but tense for about the first half, before the second movement kicks in like machine gun fire unleashing the piercing sounds of warfare, annihilation and general unpleasantry. This split is like sandpaper to my ears. -Surfer Rosa
