Genre: Ambient, Noise
Label: Malignant Records
Ugh. It’s finally happened. I’m listening to something from my favorite supplier of audio crack and I ain’t feelin’ it at all. This isn’t the normal offering that I’m used to. It a ton more abrasive and too far into the realm of BORING.
Sure, there may be a lot going on in some of these tracks (a random scream here or there as well as some inorganic swells and jolts) but ultimately, this album just feels directionless. As the listener, I was in the same boat. I was never really sure what I was supposed to be feeling or what the artist wanted me to feel, even though the Sin (re: emotion) was the name of the track! The sad hallmark of a unrealized idea.
Broken down, Deadly sins has a cool premise: each track is meant to remind the listener and/or relive an experience related to the Seven Deadly Sins (something I think that Negru Voda would of hit with a direct bull’s eye. But, hindsight and all that…). Instead, the listen is reminded that there are much better releases out there that make them feel more than just utter annoyance.
All Deadly Sins sounds like to me is noise. Other releases in similar genres make me feel something. Relive something. Transport me somewhere alien or familiar. Deadly Sins just gives me a god damn headache.
Overall: I am thoroughly disappointed that my new go-to genre isn’t as bulletproof as I wished it was. Foolish. :(
