Review by JD on August 24, 2015.
I love when a band collects various influences and turns out a product that was surprising yet familiar all at the same time. Some bands rock it, other just fizzle and die an empty death. Will a band from the Netherlands called Prickrott do it?
Touting themselves as an industrial/experimental black metal band… this Netherlands based five piece also seems to be influenced by techno and grindcore as well. They bring a plethora of different things to the table for their music. Sadly, that is the best thing about this CD, as it quickly dissolves into chaotic noise and horrible derived ideas that lacked any musicality.
This seven song CD is a venture of art meeting different extremes in music- which sadly never comes to completion. Noisy with little in the way of music, it reminds me more like the mind of a seriously deranged person than extreme metal. They have the odd musical moment here and there throughout the album, but they are few and never helps their cause… chaos is never musical.
Horribly recorded… even Lo-Fi would be hundreds of times better than this. This is the way this album goes. I say pass this CD over and thank any gods you may or may not worship that you listened to me. I warned you, heed my warning!!
