Boomkat Product Review:
UPFRONT EXCLUSIVE. Second release from Nos Phillipe, appearing on the Back Atlas imprint some months after their debut for Confront. This excellent self-titled work deploys a broader palette of textures and developed scope spread over three long tracks. With 'Deacons (Control Of The Candidate)' and the 24 mintue 'Live At Cafe Oto' they incorporate a doomy streak of metal soundscaping, weaving detuned riffs in between sheets of coarse grey noise and wailing drones. The first track is the most impressive, creating a blank staring and wide open space for the ghostly happenings to occur, letting passages of Hafler Trio-esque static movement disintegrate under the impending riffs until they reveal the internal layers of scarred and blackened flesh recalling Nurse With Wound. Lovers of Badalamenti/Lynchian atmospherics find something to grip onto here. Recommended.
