INFERNAL MACHINES: Rife DL Clang
The Demark based Clang label is awash with a mass of sound experimentalists. There are the odd few that shine, such as the impressive Wavemultiplier and Anders Holst; and some that fall way below the mark and are simply unreviewable. Infernal Machines fall somewhere in-between.
When this duo gets going, as in midway through ‘Is That a Light’, I can almost see what they’re trying to achieve; with a virtual hypnosis present amongst an impossible wall of layered electronics. Then it all falls apart on the clattering mess of ‘Ashen Lines’ and tacky electronics of freeform ‘Steady Jolt’.
Regardless of the obvious talents that Infernal Machines may have; these are hidden amongst a wall of self-indulgent musical theatrics that are as unnecessary as they are ridiculous.
