The Von Deer Skulls - The Damned Chapter
Rock From the head of the multi-faceted and schizophrenic mind of The Von Deer Skulls comes their latest remix/rarities album. Out on October 31st, this album includes several remixes, a cover, a live recorded track, and some other odds and ends you'll likely find interesting.

Obviously, the live recorded track of their track From The Wood sounded exactly as you would expect a live track to sound. It wasn't nearly as clear as the in studio recording, but that's expected. And the crowd sound suspiciously large.

They also covered Tool's Right In Two. Sounding similar to the original, just darker, with the vocals more disturbed and distorted, I liked the cover version better.

The remixes from the various artists are decent, and interesting. They all keep in tune with the lighter touches that the originals had, and my favorite mix comes from Nequam's mix of B*tches Of The Wood. The overall dark ambiance of the track, along with the various electrical noises to screams make it an instant hit.

The three different sections of the last three songs, To The Damned flows one into another. They occupy sounds of noise to low-fi guitar, and were a horrid, but lovely, mess to get through. The mere clattering of different sounds were quite well off, and I enjoyed it all.

And, for a remix album with a few random and interesting songs here and there, it wasn't all too bad. This is definitely something you should check out for yourself, as it is somewhat weird, but also very entertaining to get through. Go ahead and give it a listen for yourself.

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.
