Dclxvi - Year of The rabbit [Harsh Noise - 2006]

Year of the rabbit is real ear wax dislodging, filling juddering harsh noise; even at low volumes Iím sure itís dangerous to not just your ears but your whole body. Though this is not just a wall of noise, there are defined changes in tone and structure bubbling and rip and tear apart bellow the searing noise cocktail.

I can clearly  hear what was once harmonic and melodic tones burned and flayed, as there crackle and bend trying to be heard through the circuit overload. Dclxvi (Patrick Fernanades) really seems to have manged  to boiled up his own take on electro aggravated digitalized noise. You can almost hear circuit boards frying, speaker cones cracking and melting. But through all the pressure and burning weight of sound the tones seem some how haunted and disturbed. On offer here are 8 tracks running between three minute to near on ten minute mark- each as unforgiving as the next, but you can hear a shift in tone and sound on each track, so itís not the same piece of noise cut to different lengths.

As his website claims ďDclxvi is hailed by many as one of the harshest digital noise artist aroundĒ for once you can believe pr hype- this certainly is one of the most meaty and  tortures noise adventures Iíve been on in some time. Just donít turn it up too loud- I think this could well cause you whole neighbourhood to panic. Dclxvi website can be found here and you can buy this direct there.
