Album Review

Liver Cancer – “Children of The Vortex” – [Love Earth Music]

abacus   7/18/2012   A Library, CD

More industrial-grade power electronics from this devilish duo out of Sacramento/Roseville. These guys take caustic, grating noise through all sorts of chaotic yet mesmerizing variations in tone/tempo/timbre with all the peaks and troughs to keep you hooked. Sheer force of an iron foundry with the destructive power of molten steel or a pummeling tsunami. Tweaked like dirty street drugs and bleak like an icy blizzard, with satanic ghouls tearing in and out. The album opens with apocalyptic incantations and the one perceivable FCC??before unleashing the fury. On 3??chainsaws give way to a rolling avalanche of twisting feedback distortion and static deformities. Did I hear sirens or am I losing my mind? The faraway chug of a train offers momentary peace from this constant cathartic release of painful sonic hatred. On 7??we’re locked in a leaking decompression chamber where darkness opens to an ominous nightmare with nefarious demons creeping out of your subconscious. The album closes with an otherworldly dialogue of goblin like tongues and ogre-ish grunts and growls. Pure misanthropia!
