As promised, here is some fucked up music that's gonna make your ears bleed.
Let me break this down for all of you real quick. I thought it was sort of strange that so many metal heads respected classical music yet had almost no knowledge of it at all. I decided to experiment a little bit and post some composers along with their music. You guys/girls have made it clear that you are interested and receptive to that academic snobbish shit and that was exciting for me. Now I want to try something else...
Another thing I find odd is the small amount of cross over between the noise scene and the metal scene. I mean I get it, but still whats up with that? Are you all so concerned with who's got the most patches and biggest beard that you have become detached from the raw power and expression of anger that attracted you to this genre in the first place? I hope not. I know some of you know a little bit about it. Aesop has posted a lot of Yamataka Eye's early noise projects on his blog (Go check those out too). I want to try a couple albums out on you guys over the next few weeks and see what you think. Give this stuff a chance, you might find that its not all that unlistenable after all.
The first album I want you to try out is John Wiese's Soft Punk. Wiese is prolific and respected artist in the noise community. His style is spastic, filled with quick cuts and drastic changes. While he's moved toward a more "minimal" or "spacious" sound recently, his earlier records tend to have dense, abrassive textures.
John is promiscuous, collaborating with all sorts of people, including Cattle Decapitation on 2008's The Harvest Floor. He makes no secret about his interest in metal music, you'll hear blast beats and growls mixed in with static and feedback on Soft Punk. But you can hear all that and more below...
