Anemone Tube vs Dissecting Table // This Dismal World
RIYL: Einsturzende Neubauten, Swans,
TAGS: LOCAL LABEL, Germany, Japan, Dark Ambient, Old School Industrial, Noise

Cassette sent to us by BLACK HORIZONS. This is a great split with, IMO, Dissecting Table really nailing it. Mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate).

Anemone Tube - Dark and abstract. Nothing to hold on to. The second track is very enjoyable.
1.) (9:54) Slow scraping and rumbling dark ambient. Minimum Entropy.
2.) (6:11) + Pulsing falling sound in background with harsh-but-not-too-harsh noise textures on top. Echoing male chant.

Dissecting Table - This track is perfect. Old-school-ish industrial masterpiece. This is why I became a DJ -- to find music like this.
3.) (19:00) + + + + Oh fuck yeah! Clanging metal "beat", ominous esoteric male group chanting throughout, weird 8-bit percolating noises…this track has it all. Harsh distorted vocals kick in around 3:30 and the pandemonium increases. Backs off a little around 7:30. At 11:30 the textures / ambient drop out from below and it's just banging metal and chanting vocals…so fucking good. Last three minutes switch it up with the textures instead of the banging and vocals.
