Boomkat Product Review:
D&B darkness from Homemade Weapons, Russian nutter Torn, and Roho on the 3rd of three Samurai Hannya volumes. Taking its title and thematic cues from the mythical masks of Japanese Noh theatre, the artists each enact their own form of darkside D&B dramaturgy with mutual conclusions.
Homemade Weapon is summoned for his 4th instalment to the series with the trepanating ice-pick snares of ‘Omen’, while Russia’s newsreel answer to the like of Limewax plays a blinder with the wolf prowl atmospheres and desiccated hardstep of ‘Dance on the Bones’. Ye don’t come anywhere near us in the dance if this one’s on.
Torn then tags in Homemade Weaposn for some Legion of Doom business in ‘Isolation’ on the backside - think raving your lips off in radioactive tundra - while Roho wraps up with the rattling halfstep pressure of ‘Totemz.’
