Resurrection Catharsis has jolted Ultradyne back into productivity. Following that five tracker of fire Wave and brimstone Electro comes Visions of a Past Life, the latest from Pi Gao Movement. Six fierce and fetid tracks are the offering from the team of Frank De Groodt and Dennis Richardson.
“1264” buries venom filled fangs into the listener. Toxins run thick amid abrasive distortion and strangled chords. Factory echoes blur into Electro for the machine pulled “Life in the Nine Circles.” “Program 1-3” is a cold and sinister track, melodies grating against one another in harsh and brittle strokes. “Voyeur” moves with broad bass and rasping beats before “Mode De Transport” plunges into blackened despair. Sharp snares try to force their way through a bulwark of bass, mutated words battered into submission by a terrifying musical weight. “Reincarnate” is the final piece of pain. Clouds loom, eclipsed and submerged notes pierced by beats. Vocals are lost, the listener being pulled deeper into the Ultradyne abyss.
Ultradyne’s rawness hasn’t subsided with time, they’ve actually become darker and more brutal. Visions of a Past Life doesn’t gaze into bygone days with a rose-tinted nostalgia, quite the opposite. Scorn and rage pour forth through ruptured mechanics, petrol fumes leak from the decaying shell of Detroit. Famine, pestilence and lost hope dished up for an anger-ridden outing.
Visions of a Past Life is available on Pi Gao Movement.
