Noise is one of the most mysterious, yet shocking musical styles, that's for sure. Master bands like JESUS LIZARD and later OXBOW had helped to shape this "music", also inspired by the stoner rock scene, especially by THE MELVINS. Noise's main characteristics are a suffocating apparent ugliness, lack of coherent melodies, whining distorted voices and a dooooomed slow and heavy touch. I keep affection for noise because I am a sucker for OXBOW's album "King Of The Jews"... anyone looking for unconventional music, should buy now that masterpiece.
Back on topic... What VOLT present here is not as fucked off as the previously mentioned band, they have more density and their music is more defined, and well...they're soul-crushing shit. The guitars are paranoid, the bass player is a schizo psychedelic weirdo and the drums are corrosive. The ambience created is a tangled noise salad that will embrace you with fear and horror and man, believe me that I would sell my soul for suffering these Germans in my own flesh live.
