Pain Lab - _Magenetic Chaos of Parallel Psychosis_
by: Adrian Bromley (2 out of 5)
I can't find the freakin' bio to this demo that we received. No info on who is in the band or where they hail from. But after from listens of this noise-infested barrage of material, I can honestly say that this band (or person) is not from this planet. Like that child's game Simple Simon meets a bad outtake of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, this fucked-up ensemble of noise gets really eerie and agitating as time goes on. My dog was howling to the beats as the music went on -- weird shit, eh? But this record isn't just squeaky annoying noise either, it's also a monstrous amount of noise and feedback thrust into our ears at ear-piercing volumes. Being rather one-dimensional, this stuff lost me kinda fast and seeing that I really didn't have much to go on, this was almost a lost cause. My fault in misplacing the bio (if there was one?), but really, is this something I should be subjected to? I don't think so. Shades of Merzbow (who creates noise music and isn't into this guy???) and Blunt Force Trauma - though not as good.
