A strange and savage pairing here, which pits Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura, Mixhell) against Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Death Pedals). While the pair might seem like an odd match on paper the results are mind-flayingly cogent, combining huge, subhuman beats with white-hot blasts of electronic mayhem. Heavy metal, industrial, noise, techno and Warp-damaged electronica are all thrown into the mix, along with vocal contributions from the likes of Dylan Walker (Full Of Hell), Laima Leyton (Mixhell) and Dwid (Integ, obviously, but perhaps more tellingly in this instance Psywarfare). While the ensuing chaos could easily have sounded haphazard there's a strong and convincing throughline to be found, the record hanging together brilliantly whether the duo are peeling skin from your face, smothering you with fizzling ambience or goading you to dance until you sweat your last drop of miserable life blissfully away.
