Churner - Coffin Angel [Violent Noise Atrocities - 2010]

The artist Churner has been prolifically releasing projects since 2007 (with Churner mainly but he is also a member of Black Metal band Octagon).  In between all his musical projects he also is the man behind Violent Noise Atrocities label.  Throughout the years the consistent element to Churner is that it always seems to be evolving.  His work may lean towards power electronics, ambient or harsh wall noise, but he always seems to bring something different to each release.

“Coffin Angel” stays with the afore mentioned course with music that is challenging yet compelling at the same time.  From a beginning (and ending) of eerie keyboards and horror film atmospheres, to pulsing reverb and screaming vocals; Churner combines them all with ease.  Moments can be excruciatingly raw, grating and course.  At other times the sounds can be downright disturbing (and given a few song titles like “Gagged”, “Closed Casket” and “Stop Breathing Please” maybe it’s par for the course) and violent.  Traces of Ambient subdue the relentless din only momentarily, but additions of mechanical and industrial sounds bring depth to the project as a whole.

Now and then the crushing noise of it all does fray the senses a bit.  However it does seem to highlight the cold and nightmarish tone that Churner is trying to convey. Is it music to listen to in the car on the way to work?  The reality is most likely not, but it definitely is a project to jar the senses and emotions.
