Boomkat Product Review:
Ancient Methods executes duties with stentorian force on Dortmund's bastion of extremity, Hands Productions.
Still knockin' like no other, his 1st outing of 2015 coolly reaches for the jugular, holds your gaze and makes the incision without flinching.
'Guided by the Force of Compassion' he draws first blood with cleaving snares and skin-flaying 16th note serrations before carving up your limbs with the bone-cutting torque and sour grind of 'Protection Had to Be Given'. You're a goner by the time that demented synth drops halfway thru.
He really puts the boot in to grimacing impact with the scything mechanics and shuddering bladesaw buzz of 'This Is All I Could Do', but no doubt the highlight is saved for last with the crushing industrial pop psychosis of 'My Ice Baby'.
