Go to the Z'ev website  Z'ev - Symphony #2 Elementalities [Blossoming Noise - 2006]

Symphony #2 Elementalities  is a very sleek hellish  take on noise, built around endless layers of clattering percussive. Almost feeling like an audio painting of a descent into hell it’s self.  Religious connection and feeling of damnation appear again in the  apocalyptic bible like texts, in the 12 pages booklet that comes with the cd.

It goes from deep rumbling banks of percussive ambiences, right up to crashing storms of clunking and rattling. It never really reaches the seething head burning heights of harsh noise- it really dwells in a more arty/ sound painting take of the genre. It’s all about the textured of the percussive sounds, more than pounding the listener into submission. It bring’s  to mind a more subdued version of one or two of the early tracks on Merzbow’s Sphere album from last year. It certainly all  has a very tangible atmosphere about it all, painting great landscapes of the yawing and steaming  pits of hell in ones mind. Where demons lead once earth bond humans, to there new task in burning sulpha of mines of regret. 

An accomplished and atmospheric trip into the nether regions,  from one of the old master of the original industrial/ noise scene. To hear samples and order direct crash down here.
