Carlos Giffoni/ Prurient - Heavy Rain Returns [iDEAL Recordings - 2007]Heavy Rain Returns is a gruelling, electro buzzing, doom laded, limb-ripping vocal extreme trip into vein barring and sweat ‘n’ Blood spiting noise. That managers to sound extreme, dangerous and full of grimy atmospherics.
From the murky/grim more disturbing the more-you-look at it cover artwork, you know you’re not in for an easy, relaxed or gentle ride. From the outset this wires you in the mains,flicks the switch pumping the power level up and up, till you eyes bulge. Then every and now you get forced over and vocal abused by Prurient's vocal seeth, before once more been battered back down to the floor by Giffoni's pulsing and burning synth overload and electronic pump.
Spilt into two brutal un-named half’s of around 20 minutes each beating. This barely ever lets up it’s intensity, when it does it’s to tread grey sweat and vomit soured corridors of cruel and forced doomy electro throb, or smell of cheap pleasure under the fingernails ambient last breaths. It's Heavy rain indeed, the kind that nail guns you to the floor and then skins you alive, letting you up ever so often to taste your tortures breath before one more forcing you down with it’s weight.
A welcome collaboration between these top-spec noise hitters, which by all account will be bearing new decaying and violent crop in the near future. To find out more, hear samples and buy direct check into this meat locker.Roger Batty
