Churner - Shadow Voyeurs [Violent Noise Atrocities - 0000]

“Shadow Voyeurs” is a brutal yet deeply atmospheric two disc collection of long form noise compositions that take in elements of: caustic ambience, noise drone, static texturing, cinematic noise construction and atmospheric Hash Noise Wall dwell.

The two disc set offers up eight tracks in all, with most tracks hinting just over the twenty minute a piece, and each track here offers up its own caustic yet hypnotic & atmospheric vibe. The set opens with the title track which finds Churner building this very bleack ‘n’ grim swirling noise drone track  that sears back and forth with this billowing & grating ,yet harmonic series of caustic ambient drone textures- it’s a great mournful yet nasty start to the release. Later on disc one we find the track “Railsolation” which is built around thick ‘n’ juddering noise textures that swim & swirl with seared yet atmospheric feedback pitchers.

Over onto disc two and the track “Frequency Fornicator” finds eerier ‘n’ bleak Sc-fi like high pitched tonalities that slowly churn and atmospherically  mixers with slow motion walls of static judder ‘n’ drone.  The second disc finishers off  with “Insanity Trip” which finds Churner offering up a great slice of muffled ‘n’ speaker vibrating static texturing that has this neat yet grey atmospheric and almost harmonic path about it. Really all of the eight tracks here are worthwhile in their own right, with each having something slightly different to offer ,and each being  a nice and balanced mixture of seared nosiness & atmosphere.


So another great and consistent release from the always worthwhile Churner. The album shows Churner perfectly mixing together noise depth and presence with atmospheric and emotional depth.
