Noumen :: Apeiron (Central Processing Unit)

Aperion (Greek for “boundless”) stands up to its nameplate—fine-tuned structural audio blocks filled with a plethora of blackened IDM fragments, and disjointed post-industrial layers.

Following up from the White Silence 4-track EP, Noumen (aka Andriy Vezdenko from Lviv, Ukraine) finally reveals a full length album after a handful of compilation appearances, this time for Sheffield based Central Processing Unit.

Apeiron lifts off into full-fledged electronic mayhem—sparks flying in all directions. Opening with brittle Brothomstates styled melodic rhythms and a definitive technical arch, the album soon transmutes into what some might recognize as early Richard Devine induced mechanical arrangements where a darker tinge accents mercurial sonic depths.

Highlights take shape with the title track and its delicate symphony and crashing beats. The industrial cacophony, glitch tentacles, and stream of consciousness on “Hidden” is simply brilliant. A broken drill’n bass smorgasbord is displayed on “Follow The Rat”—an utter blast to the senses. It’s easy to hear that Noumen gravitates towards more aggressive electronic workouts. The acidic experimentation on “Untrodden” somehow unveils an industrial wasteland and ricocheting percussive bits plastered against an emotive backdrop.
