Discussion about RU-486 - Hook & Barb Pt. 1
From CRUCIAL BLAST:Another recent limited-edition chunk of bestial power electronics and junkyard-crush chaos from Thomas Mortigan's Ru-486 project. Issued in a tiny run of forty copies in a hand-assembled sleeve, Hook And Barb Part I features two tracks/twenty one minutes of heavy industrial violence, combining a rather atmospheric (by RU-486 standards) live track and a collaboration with noise outfit Defiler.First is the title track, a delirious hypno-jam that slowly takes form as looping tribal rhythms enter in, a steady and constant pounding that evokes images of a multitude of percussionists hammering on hand-drums while massive black clouds of distortion and reverb-drenched drone billow in over the beats, and sinister chanting rides in on waves of thick amplifier rumble. Totally different from the brutal junk-noise/bestial electronics hybrid that Mortigan usually delivers with RU-486, this dense drone-trance still has that ominous, murderous overtone that hangs over his other recordings, especially when the vocals begin to become more aggressive and the layers of sound grow more abrasive and blown-out. The other track is the collaboration with Gordon Lazarus of Defiler/Unit 371, "You Won't Survive This Fight"; this one delivers more than ten minutes of intense harsh noise and feedback drone that starts off with the heavy hum of amplifiers hovering beneath sheets of corrosive high-end distortion, then transforms into a monstrous power electronics assault as the snarling vocals drift in and those blackened drones. The track builds into a thick, bone-rattling wall of amped-up death-hum reminiscent of Genocide Organ or Anenzephalia that bores through the whole track. Brutal stuff that fits in alongside the rest of RU-486's stuff, but then they suddenly drop a massive breakbeat into the mix, a beefy boom-bap loop that pounds and skitters underneath the increasingly foul PE assault, creating a strange but killer mix of Scorn-like trip-hop beats and suffocating blackened power electronics. Works nicely, I really hope that this is something that Mortigan will continue to experiment with on future releases.
