Blanck Mass – World Eater
If there can be such a thing as ‘heavy rock’, then this is ‘heavy electronica.’ Like 2015’s equally brilliant Dumb Flesh, the grotesque cover prepares you for an unforgiving assault on the senses (well, on the hearing, at least). However, it both cases what actually transpires is far more welcoming (in relative terms) and nuanced. Having been prepared for a horror film you realise you’re actually watching a thriller. He isn’t repeating the same old tricks, either; this moves on from Dumb Flesh showing both (even) greater intensity (Rhesus Negative) and tranquility (Please).
