Boomkat Product Review:
Burkhard Friedrich is probably best known, at least in Germany, for his opera work (not least his Lynch inspired ‘Imitation of Life’) but this latest record, an installation which is enhanced by visuals, explores his interest in electronic music. The sound is rich and evocative, with the nail-biting terror of a Miasmah release juxtaposed with the digital intensity of classic Mego work. Strings are re-carved with noisy bells and computerized belches, drones appear from just behind you and cavernous rumbles enhabit the entire disc. It’s not easy listening, that’s for sure – and anyone interested in blackened drones should look no further.
