Boomkat Product Review:
A crushing epilogue to Deathprod’s immense ‘Occulting Disk’ album, the ‘Dark Transit EP’ was exclusively available at the Norwegian noise lord’s prestigious Oslo Opera House show on 10th November, 2019, and is now available here in a very limited edition of 200 copies.
While we’re still keeling in the wake of ‘Occulting Disk’, the Norwegian demigod’s exclusive epilogue peers into the abyss once more for anyone who wants to go further down the wormhole. Produced by Helge Sten at the Audio Virus Lab, the EP suggests a perilous freefall thru sustained, vertiginous tones that scream like a banshee from the top of Norway’s granite peaks.
Inscribed with run-out grooves reading “anti fascist”, Deathprod disambiguates any confusion between fascinations with negative energy and plain negativity that may be associated with “dark” music from Scandinavia. With intent focus he banks two sides of whelming tonal dynamic divided by deathly lacunæ that simultaneously make the listener feel nanoscopic in the grand scheme of things, while also imparting a dark energy that can lead to positive lines of thought, in the right hands and mind.
We're told by the label that this reease won't get a re-press - don't snooze.
