Å - Que Crève Le Vieux Monde [Toxic Industrials - 2010]

“Que Crève Le Vieux” (roughly translated  “"the old world must go to hell"”) is  a HNW tribute to 18th century French anarchists and writer Albert Libertad who founded one of the worlds most important anarchist journals  L’Anarchie.

This release consists of two lengthy and extremely unforgiving HNW tracks by north/eastern France based project Å. The first untitled track is the longest here at just under the forty four minute mark, and it find s Å summoning up a nice ripping ‘n’ raging storm bound wall of noise that is built around an roaring ‘n’ tearing drone, and smaller jitter ‘n’ juddering static tonalities that bring to mind the sound of a mass of tree branches in a force ten hurricane. The tracks wild and battering through-out, but fairly fixed in it’s structure.

Lastly we have the second untitled track which comes in around the twenty three and a half minute mark. This ‘wall’ is very rapid, fixed and simply yet effective in it’s make –up, it’s two (possible three at times) billowing and raging tones that lock into each other in a  fast ’n’ vicious sonic white-out. It’s  wonderful nihilistic and unrelenting in it’s attack and structure.


“Que Crève Le Vieux” is a release that starts off very unforgiving, brutal and nasty, and really stays that way through–out.  All told it’s another fine themed and executed release from this highly prolific French project and another worthy chapter in Toxic industrials Irritant series.
