Go to the Doc Wör Mirran website  Doc Wör Mirran - The Soundtrack Of Death [Moloko+ - 2002]

The German act Doc Wör Mirran has a seemingly endless discography, which I would not even start counting. "The Soundtrack Of Death" is their latest professional release (since they also release numerous CDRs), and is probably the noisiest and loudest Doc Wör Mirran release to date.

The concept of Doc Wör Mirran is to combine music and graphic art, alongside all kinds of other forms of art such as paintings, sculpture, poetry, etc. Therefore Doc Wör Mirran is not only known from their musical side, but also from the frequent expositions they organise. DWM also has an open-membership policy, causing the enormous output still very varied and different from each other. With the recent acquisition of a digital recording studio, the future promises even more DWM releases.

"The Soundtrack Of Death" is, as the name implies, not really an easy-listening disc. The floats somewhere between old-school industrial, power electronics and droning ambient. It is not as noisy as the newer power-electronics acts or Merzbow for example, but instead concentrates on slow building rhythmic loops and noisy feedback, creating a dark atmosphere rather than an aggressive one. The five tracks span almost three quarters of music, and that's unfortunately a bit too long for me to keep my interest to this album. It has its moment, but it also contains too many long boring parts which need improvement. More prominent rhythms, samples or vocals might do the job, but that's not the case here.

Regular Doc Wör Mirran listeners might indeed be surprised with the noise on this album, but then again, you'll never know what you get... There are better and more interesting releases available in this genre however, but I don't want to slag off "The Soundtrack Of Death" totally. And because they consider this to be a real soundtrack to die along to, it comes packed in a nice metal film can.
