Boomkat product review for:

helm - Impossible Symmetry

**Incredible album strongly recommended to followers of The Haxan Cloak, mastered & cut by Rashad at D&M to 140g vinyl. Housed in pro-printed inner sleeve and jacket, itself contained in a silkscreened pvc sleeve designed by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas** Luke Younger has cultivated a strikingly focussed yet free-ranging style of electro-acoustic and abstract sound exploration for the last ten years, both solo and in pioneering avant-drone duo Birds Of Delay with Steven Warwick (Heatsick). Helm is his solo endeavour, now four albums deep with more cassettes and CDRs beside, and if you ask us - or probably any other freak into this stuff - the miasmatic 'Impossible Symmetry' is his finest achievement. On it, Younger confidently builds upon the foundations laid with last year's 'Cryptography', integrating filigree electronics and grunge-sunken rhythms to recall the ungodly spaces invoked by early Coil or Cabaret Voltaire, and finding contemporary parallels with the para-Industrial mindset of The Haxan Cloak, Mike Weis's aquatic masses and, well, something completely undefinable. Using processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and broken guitar strings, he creates a world where these instruments morph into a spectral rust, a shimmering klang swims along passive noise and the relationship between acoustic and electronic derived sounds forms a solid foundation. This delicate construction is steered through a melange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in a post-industrial fashion with a commitment to homemade exploratory zeal. Strongly recommended.
