Bleeding Ears - Soiled
Industrial, Noise From Swedish industrial noise project Bleeding Ears comes Soiled, a new four track EP given birth earlier this year in February. Though described as industrial noise, which may have been true for past releases, the actual beat that forms bears in mind more of a rhythmic noise approach. Still noise, just more musical than not.

Disintegration gives us a taste of the rhythmic noise approach that Bleeding Ears wants to get us accustomed to. Hard electronics flow in a medium paced beat with a few noises to spare here and there; nothing at all too fancy, but nothing to ignore either.

With sounds kicking off like tools at a construction job having a great big fat orgy in Engorged, the metallic clings and clashes surrounding a hard drum beat was decent. A bit punishing to the ears, but this wouldn't be considered noise if it didn't fuck your aural senses in one way or the other.

Soiled, the title track, doesn't have much formation of a beat at all; this is what noise is. Lots of bass is amplified to good effect, but the overall song just doesn't do much aside from repeat itself. The sound are good for a few moments, but even in the short duration for two minutes and forty two seconds, I kind of got bored with it.

Unsane went back to the sort of rhythmic noise, power electronic sort of phase, and dished out a scratchy like sound along with the electronics being delivered. Once more, not bad, but repetitious.

And, that's the main enemy of this album: Repetition. It's not really the noise that echoes from my earphones that kills me, rather it's the overall looping aspect of the songs. I think that if this artist could bring more noise into the fray by flipping the songs around every so often, then this would become killer in no time.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
