Ghast / Rape X - Split CD
- Availability: In Stock
Obskure Sombre Records brings us this highly interesting split release, featuring two relatively unknown bands who deliever two different music styles. Canada's GHÄST open the disc with their first contribution 'Le Noyé' and plunge into a world of feedback, black ambient and mesmerizing loops. Within a very few seconds the band is capable to construct a mysterious and eerie atmosphere. Although they have a modern sound, I detect subliminal influences from German pioneers like Tangerine Dream and Cluster but that doesn't mean GHÄST is trying to revitalize the early 70's. Sometimes a slightly distorted voice can be heard which is interwoven into this impervious sonic web that is fraught with tension. USA RAPE-X is a power electronics unit which is in the wake of bands like The Grey Wolves, Deathpile or Control. 'Civil Servant' is subdivided into three parts with a running time between 4:38 minutes and 20:04 minutes.
