Boomkat Product Review:
*Almost 4 hours of absolutely immense, often harsh and visceral electronic works - ESSENTIAL* Alberich is the bleak ambient and power electronics alter ego of Kris Lapke, revered studio engineer for the likes of The Haxan Cloak and Prurient, his bandmate in Ash Pool. 'Nato-Uniformen' was released in 2010 as a micro run boxset of eight cassettes, but thankfully for the ferricly challenged it's been released digitally, collecting 30 highly diverse yet gestalt operations, nearly 4 hour in total. At the top there's the beautifully discomforting synth and bomber drones of 'Atlantic Munitions Development', but the further we engage, the more bloody the battles. From the bludgeoning Doom Techno payload of 'Skyweeper' or 'Limit Mitigate Counteract Transmute', through entrenched drone of 'Artillerie Korp', and epic emotions of 'Man Is Ready', this is a mission not to be taken lighheartedly, but the spoils are worth every bit of collateral damage. Simply put, the production is exceptionally visceral, but not just noisy, and comes hugely recommended to fiends at the harsher end of the spectrum.
