New from kulturterrorismus netlabel comes a split by two great artists who I am getting to hear for the first time. Joris J and Ratbag epitomize true, traditional industrial music as it's meant to be played. Ratbag starts it off with some dark ambient atmospheres, punctuated by clangs and scrapes that are dampened, not jarring and mix well. The second track is a tightly composed harsh noise piece with low rumbles, high-pitched chirps and mid-range metallic drones. More industrial atmospheres are followed by Joris J's contribution, their first track starting off with some distorted bell tones that evolves into some aggressive sample & hold electronics. The next track starts off with some unplaceable '60s sample, then moves into a multi-layered drone passage. More ambient industrial atmospheres follow, with a short noise piece wrapping the split up. Diverse sounds that you can play in order or random for different flavors with every listen. Available as both VBR MP3 and Ogg Vorbis, highly recommened!
