Blanck Mass - World Eater— Si Sharp -
Glorious noise from one half of Fuck Buttons. World Eater is a mix of industrial assault, soaring arpeggios, ambient sounds, and terrifying distorted vocal samples that builds layer upon layer and is engaging throughout. I would say I was left open-mouthed by this album, but since my natural gormlessness ensures this state, I’m lost for an adequate illustration. Suffice to say, there’s a lot going on here, it’s done brilliantly and defies pigeonholing. It’s like the soundtrack to an abstract horror film set in a nasty nightclub. A film where you have no idea what the plot is doing but leaves you thoroughly unsettled.
