Brutal Blues – Brutal Blues (Nerve Altar)

Brutal Blues – Brutal Blues (Nerve Altar)

Norwegian grinder Steinar has been fraying the fringes of the style over the last few years with the futuristic Psudoku and the crusty Parlamentarisk Sodomi. But Brutal Blues might be his nuttiest soundbomb yet. Joined by drummer Anders (Noxagt, Blodsprut), the two juxtapose rapid-fire blasts and reverbed vocals to create a mind-spraining array of crossrhythms. It’s as if the tablature to Discordance Axis’ “Typeface” was carved into the drill bit of a jackhammer aimed at your temple and operated by a theremin. So Brutal Blues should be as messy as your splattered gray matter, but replays uncover something of an order; though admittedly the kind of airtight logic favored by the insane. All in all, it sounds like the end of music. Your roommates will hate it. –Ian [LISTEN]
