SPK: Dekompositiones Side Effekts)
In their Seppuku (ritual suicide) incarnation, and oddly enough a rumble at the back of one of these tracks reminded me of Suicide's 'Che'.
Mostly SPK sound refreshingly unlike anybody, although it's intimidating, boiling, sometimes matt black noise on the verge of concrete music. Metal thunders uncaringly in the middle ground, untraceable earthquakes shift the floor, booming spirit voices and the shredding grind of unknown machines fill the rest. An eerie disquieting place yet I confess a modest admiration. Here is starkness and destruction that sounds as unafflected as it can be (which is still affected).
