Five days ago German harsh noise/power electronics act Scatmother have returned, unleashing their new full-length release, Sadotantra.
The recently released Sacrificial Rites Of Devotion split with Chaos Cascade revealed a creepier, more mid-paced side of power electronics, Sadotantra offers a more violent & aggressive side of Scartmore- yet dark as always. Sharp in sound as Beyond Of Hijokaidan, but one can also find brutality similar to Massona or Gruntand above all, a sound of its own identity. There are subtle textures, rich in detail.
The album will blossom best if you raise the volume until it hurts. Brahma Shakti is a landmark & explains well what the album is about – ideas. The songs melt various ideas into one & take less time than many other power electronics bands do. It’s like an attack with a drill towards your head that will give you more than half an hour of discomfort.
