Suspension - HALO - Degree Zero Point Of Implosion
Label: Embryo Recordings - EMB010 • Format: 7x, File MP3 • Country: Australia • Genre: Rock • Style: Industrial, Doom Metal, Noise
The fourth release from 4 Voice Fantasia No. 8 In G Major - Henry Purcell - The Fantasias For Viols improv sonic terrorists HALO takes their bastard mix of noisecore sludge and abrasive power electronics to new depths.
HALO deconstructs the sad carcass of Heavy Music with relentless efficiency, forcing it through a meat grinding power noise aesthetic to leave it shivering and wasted by the side of the road, begging for release.
Degree Zero Point Of Implosion mixes wall-of-noise dynamics with brutal cacophony — critically detuned bass lays down sheets of white noise and static, modulated into damaged doom riffs and atonal drones over thunderous snail-pace rhythms and throat-tearing catharsis.
Well, that pretty much sums up the sound and attitude of this release. It will NOT make you happy. It will not brighten your day. And like those two other albums it has moments of cohesiveness, with almost song like structures, and some parts with noise just pounding away. It has certainly been a long time coming. HALO is definitely progressing and carrying the torch of twisted misery, while avoiding cliches of what is and what is not heavy.
