The second half of EP1 slows things down, with bad trip interlude Into Ludes stepping into Scorn territory. Misery Box is built around a sombre chorus lyric of ‘Everything falls apart’ and final track Waster pits reflective, elegiac verses against overloaded industrial terror, drawing proceedings to an overwhelming conclusion by approximating a tussle between Godflesh and another Justin Broadrick enterprise, the fuzzy shoegaze outfit Jesu. There aren’t many making this sort of racket as convincingly as Lair Of The White Worm right now; let’s hope EP2 isn’t too long coming.
For fans of: Godflesh, Scorn, Pitchshifter
EP1 is released on October 15 via APF / Trepanation
