Primer Rhythmic Noise, TBM 1N.C1.D3.N7 A few of you will recognise this band name, as they've been in existence in the form of a single track 'The Incident', which was found on a compilation CD in 2009. Personally, I'm delighted to finally have a release by them, as Rhythmic Noise is a genre in which I like 1 in about 12 bands, David Lopes' '1N.C1.D3.N7' being one of the minority. Kicking off with 'Book of Shadows', the beat reminds me immediately of Combichrist's 'Enjoy The Abuse', except this act isn't strangulated by scene boys and girls who will only ever remember one song, and it's much heavier, and much more comprehensive in it's authority. No prizes for guessing how 'The Bomb' sounds - it's the 2nd review in a row that's been littered with air-raid sirens, but this is something very familiar to the Rhythmic Noise litter - chaos, frantically paced beats, and just enough melody to peek through like a frightened little girl observing the chaos. It gets heavier still with 'Experiment', a song that just seems like it was made to be in a film like Resident Evil. In terms of sheer brute force, and insane melody, I'd lumber this firmly between Terrorfakt and Phosgore, yet with a Mediterranean identity - the act is from Portugal, but there's just elements to it which give it that feel, similar to how Hocico just sound Mexican and fierce. Skip a few tracks (not that there's any reason to other than ease of reading), and we come to 'Wraith' - my nomination for 'try before you buy', and after the 7 original tracks, there is (ironically) a remix by Terrorfakt. The other two remixes don't particularly send alarm bells ringing in either direction, but I'm so pleased to see this act finally on the market that I simply don't care about the remixes. Strong release for a genre in need of redesign. 350
