Being - Predator [Skeleton Dust Recordings - 2009]

Being is the Dayton, OH based Harsh noise project of Luke Tandy who also runs the skeleton Dust label. ‘Predator’ is a C20’s worth of pummelling, fierce yet fairly active & shifting harsh noise battering & hammering wall noise abuse.

Side one opens with a thick drilling, slowish, nasty & static encrusted throbbing industrial noise bass loop with which Tandy attacks and bombards with layers of rolling feed back, low-down hiss, crush & deep crunching tones. The track feels like been in a Concrete building as it starts to fall and crash around you. Through-out the track Tandy keeps it nicely active, shifting yet unforgiving.  The next track on side one starts off a lot more crunching & thick wall based in it’s make-up as  Tandy hits you with two different texture walls of sound after another; yet Tandy  still keeps nicely shifting and boiling the crunching wall of sound, but in a more subtle manner than the first track.

Moving onto side two one & only track which opens up with fast running plates of harsh noise texture that Tandy shifts and grinds against each other in a rather effective & brutal droning industrlized manner. As the track goes on he turns the sonic gears more towards roaring & tearing tonalities which he slowly rips and tears around you like a slow monition storm- this part of the track I guess feels more wall like & focused in it’s intent.

With ‘Predator’ Tandy offers up an enjoyable, but punishing & fierce release that sits between brutal & shifting industrialized Harsh noise making & more persistent/ roaring HNW making.
