Boomkat Product Review:
"Recorded by Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh). Two new Årabrot tracks + covers of Lee Hazlewood and Death in June. Includes perfomances by Karin Park and Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh). In their eleven years of existence noise rockers Arabrot have been an intangible and ever-changing orchestra. Forever amending and constantly in opposition, often towards themselves. Throughout the years they've touched many a different field, but seldom as eerie as on Mæsscr. With pianos, pump organs and hissing, whispering vocals as main tools, Arabrot is molding a musical landscape that lugubriously signals sexuality, violence and morals. In addition to two new songs, Arabrot have done remakes of Lee Hazlewood's "Poor Man" and Death In June's "Kukuku" and "The Honour Of Silence". The recordings have been made partially on American and Swedish ground, but the main recordings, mixing and producing was done by Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh) in Malabar Studios, Oslo, August 2011. Participating musicians, in addition to the Årabrot core of Kjetil Nernes and Vidar Evensen, is Magnus Nymo (gong), Karin Park (piano and flute) and Emil Nikolaisen (guitars, harmonium, noise). Mæsscr is another fundamental outburst from a group that never stops being unpleasant. Positive feedback from Terrorizer + The Quietus so far."
