Street Sects - Broken Windows, Sunken Ceilings
Noise, Industrial I've been meaning to grab this for review for a while, well, ever since I listened to the crazed first EP The Morning After the Night We Raped Death. Utterly uncompromising, aiming to slam complete guttural noise down your throat in the sickest manner with a huge love for noise in every form, Street Sects is perhaps one of the hardest hitting bands I've heard in quite a while that doesn't manage to drown their noise into complete incomprehensible garbage. These guys have a lot of anger built into their music, and they're able to push out emotions to the limit through lurid shouting and intimidating songwriting that feels just so right.

Broken Windows, Sunken Ceilings is the latest outing by this act, and it's part two of five in a series titled Gentrification: A Serial Album. Three short tracks spun fast together in a riveting six minutes provides a hell ride to journey through, and it's so fun.

Gash Addict hits us off with a healthy dose of electronic sounds that are soon joined by the distorted chords that lurk behind Street Sects. A more rhythmic noise approach is taken as a beat is formed underneath inhumane screams, drum works, as well as a bunch of other sonic bursts of carnage that are just hard to describe without comparing to them next to an orgy of half-drunken, half-angry robots.

Disappearing Infamy lurks more so into the noise territory, brutalizing the idea of a stagnant tune for all too long. The track is so ADD ridden, that at one point you're listening to the devilishly delicious cries of pain echo out, to just really slamming drum work, to just more electronic charges meant to do nothing more but fuck your speakers.

The final, digital only bonus track Public School No. 4 actually includes some vocal work that was slightly more understandable than previous, however, that notion disappears quite quickly as noise floods in and the angered speaking turns into frantic, passionate screaming.

And, if you're looking for harsh sounds, look no further than Street Sects. This is two guys who seem like they know what they're doing, but the way the song comes out, it sounds like a fucking nightmare. A lovely, horrible nightmare that you'd just never want to journey through again. This is an album that will give you a glorious headache, but as soon as you remember where you got the pain from, you'll just smile and say, "I'll have a second dose of the pain game." Sit down, and let this three track release slaughter your insides for six minutes; see how it makes you feel afterwards.

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.
