Boomkat Product Review:
Vereker's Endangered Species label rallies an unswerving stare-down of a compilation featuring Vereker in disguise alongside Skander, Die Kombination and 2NF, all fully committed to the heaviest stuff in Death Always Follows.
A grim survey of the label so far, Death Always Follows combines select material from four previous releases with five unreleased fouls including some deadly, incognito Vereker gear. It’s worth noting up front that there’s very little of what you might call “noise-techno” inside; rather it’s all of a peculiar, sullen and full sunk pallor that resonates with OG west coast nastiness from The Haters and NON as much as TG or even Whitehosue from our side of the cess pit.
It revolves no less than three numbers from Skander’s sorely overlooked Ruins LP, impressing itself in the gravelly mastication of Death Watcher’s Shroud, the heart-aching highlight of Barbed Chains, and the Intrigue & Stuff-like ambience of Mend, beside hurts from his Renoir duo with Vereker, namely the eviscerated choral piece Concrete, the muscle-wasting atrophy of Broken Tongue, and eye-wobbling terror of Stigmata.
Cologne, Germany’s Die Kombination also feature, giving a taste of their Leibermuster  tape in the deliciously depressive atmospheres of Vollkommenheit and the cranky slugger, Territion, whereas Seele reveals a slightly more sensual aspect. However, the most compelling material comes from 2NF and Ferro Mortem; the former with two tape-buckling demonstrations of caustic power noise, whilst the latter finally relinquishes his ear-worming rhythmic noise bug, New Traumas and the never-before-heard trepanation of Blood Organ. Take a guess at the who’s behind those two, and you’re probably right…? You may also be very wrong, which is why you’re reading all this pony.
