Go to the The Cherry Point website  The Cherry Point - Black Witchery [Toniks - 2006]

Black Witchery brings together a trilogy of limited edition 3” cd releases from 2004. Celebrating all things darkly ocultic with three bloody slabs of seething walls of noise, that often ooze out more atmospherics and eerier filmatic creepy scapes.

Each track runs near or at the twenty minute mark, and seem to total overcome the listener and engulf them into a black cloud, that sometimes lessen so you can see chilling visions. Like an abandoned village its walls scrawled with rust coloured pentagrams, the decaying windows that seem to watch you. Or a walk though rain cloaked forest, where you pick up odd chants from somewhere and the smell of strange burning, could someone be cooking a pig, way out here you wonder?. That what really seems to set Cherry point apart from other noise artist is his ability to balance burn you face off or massive walls of noise that you feel in your bones, along with some very chilling and creepy hovering of dark ambient noise craft. But not lessened by either element of his sound.

One of my favourite tracks on offer here is the Devils witch, which has a wonderful cave like vibe to it, and what sounds like a mix of the yawning abyss of hell and amplified drippings and odd bat calls. Creating a track that’s both brutal and look behind you creepy, it really does build up the point were you feel you are lost deep underground, and the cave walls seem to be pressing in on you, as you hear what could be echoed sighing behind you.

Another superb release from The Cherry point, pummeling you to near breathless submission, then scare the living daylights out of you. Dark noise art of the highest form.
