Caustic Infibulation - _Caustic Infibulation_
(Independent, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
Warned early on by creator Bill Norris of the infancy of material found on this LP, I took all that into account when playing this for the first time. I was quite pleased to hear such a complex sound flowing from the music. Bill... this isn't infant-staged music, to say the least. Complex and eerie in the sense of many ambient-styled outfits (Soma, Trail Of The Bow, Juno Reactor), Caustic Infibulation seems to radiate an aura of dark emotions and explores many of life's experiences. The problems I had with the music found on this debut CD is the certain degree of holding back in the music. It seems staged at times, staged to a point where barriers have been set up and abided by. I think what CI needs to do is break down those barriers and explore. Maybe this is just an infant state and the band really does have bigger and better plans. I dunno. I'm interested and want to hear more, guys. Show me you can progress rather than stay stagnant and unmotivated. Good ideas, just lacking something -- though the track "Harsh Acid Injection" rules supreme.
