Hentai – “Toy Factory, The ” – [Vital Records]
Hentai, Jakob Nybo from Denmark, is often described as a brutal mixture of sinister minimalistic noise blended with soundscapes and audio torture. He apparently takes all his anger and frustrations and unleashes it in destructive electronic brain noise.
Not quite as painful as Merzbow, but certainly no picnic. This album reminds me of a few D-movie cheesy puppet horror flicks I’ve spent valuable time watching. Great to fantasize your bloody Cabbage Patch doll axing your brothers Teddy Ruxpin bear!
Some tracks complete with evil toy sounds! Hentai also writes articles and reviews on Japanese extreme cinema. -cinderaura
