Boomkat Product Review:
More killer stuff from the Riot Season label, this time coming to us from Sweden, and more specifically from blackened drone/noise outfit The Skull Defekts. Headed up by feedback manipulator Henrik Rylander and Ideal records bossman Joachim Nordwall you know you can expect some seriously heavy noise, but little could prepare you for the purist drone assault you end up with on this earth-trembling waxen disc. Think Sunn o))), think early Earth, think all the copyists and then think again, The Skull Defekts' vision is one step closer to Oren Ambarchi or even further into the realm of Line/12k based experimental minimalism, it's just replete with a grimacing blackness that betrays its metal roots. Amazing, long-form drone music and sure to bring a frown to the face of any self-respecting fanboy. Recommended.
