The Haters / Kadaver – The Haters / Kadaver – Cassette/Download
– Tribe Tapes – 2022 – Tribe 012.
The Haters – Pump Powered Permawave (2021).
Kadaver – Venomous Agent.
Neither of these projects presented here really needs much
introduction from me. OK, if you insist, we have the Haters, US Noise champions
of destruction and new ways to make noise in a live setting. The Haters is GX
Jupiter Larsen active since 1979. Kadaver is Michael Zolotov, who is one of the
new pioneers of Death Industrial in its present form.
Haters straight away sounds like
something of today, waling screech and ominous drones go off as background
sounds play out. You can’t say, ‘oooh, the Haters doing their old thing…’ it
has a strong contemporary feel to it in production methods and choices of sounds
used. The drones make me think of a nightmarish
take on Angus MacLise or Phil Niblock resonating bad vibes caused by the accompanying
noise. Pump Powered Permawave is
simultaneously sophisticated and anxiety inducing. The death drone on the die
out is gorgeous. All elements create a strong representation of the Haters five
Death Industrial back in the day
was bits of Italian and English projects, then Brighter Death Now in his shades,
then Atrax Morgue being bleak and sexy, now days it is S.T.A.B. Electronics resonating
street hate and Kadaver bleeding out of Israel. Big synthesisers resonate approaching death, feedback menaces over it, as if threatening to kill you. I mentioned ‘Gorgeous’
in the Haters paragraph, this track resonates a grim beauty with simple
elements squaring up to each other over nine and a half minutes. As the
sickness to the sound is increased by tweaking the two sources, so does the
beauty of the work. The drop of sound into muffled bubbling provides a contrasting,
die out to the track.
The more I review, the more I
discover gems like this. Great work both.
