Daniel Menche - Wolf's Milk [Utech Records - 2007]

Wolf's Milk finds Mr Menche dipping into prime eerier, gothic and hypotonic drone waters. With three long & untitled tracks each sourced from a different sound source- with very little of a noise attack, this concentrates on smothering and grim atmospherics.

The first track utilizes Organs and is the longest here at just over half an hour, it’s doom ridden organ loops & building dread  bring to mind sinister & violent going on’s inside a country church- like watching  a distressing human sacrifice with out sound and in grainy black and white played out in slow monition on the churches alter.  The  tracks throbs, drones and black unfolds sucking you into a grim hypnotic trance. The second track users only gongs and unsurprising  has again quite an  ritual/sacrifice feel about it, with an almost aquatic air too - like slowed, slurred and out of focus voodoo dance soaked in eerier and decay air. It  has a great feeling of morbid anticipation and growing fear as Menche clever builds the atmosphere to such a hypnotic  fever pitch, but never  resulting to noise. Lastly we have track three which users just penetration drone tones of trumpets, the tones seem boar deeper and deeper into your very being as Menche unfold one pitch on top of another, often having a bell like tone or stomach pressing airless about them. It nicely finishers off the album with  your body in heighten state of edginess and grim wonder.

Again another highly reward and deep release from Mr Menche that’s wrapped in a such a wonderful rich and grim air. Primed perfectly to putting you into a gloomy trance- leavening you staring in  a haunted manner off into space.
