In stock

Glowering debut LP of concentrated, razing guitar noise and resonant atmospheres from Christina Nemec (Chra) and Christian Schachinger, both erstwhile collaborators with the dearly departed Peter Rehberg in Shampoo Boy and Peterlicker
Practically picking up where Shampoo Boy left us, mid-decade on Blackest Ever Black, but with notable absence of their close spar Rehberg, Paradiso Infernal explore stark negative space with nods to the precise minimalism of Giacinto Scelsi on their eponymous entrance. The sound is chasmic, abstract and roiling, also reminding of KTL’s skull-scraped guitar textures between the squirming shapes and prickling surfaces of ‘Unrest’, and a nastier echo of Fennesz in ‘Fluch’, while summoning daemonic spirits with claw handed gestures on ‘Lack.’ Nearing its summit, ‘Kalk’ affords some respite with only stereo-swarming electronics shedding scant light on what appears to be a vast ice cavern, before the cavemen yank out walls of feedback, granting access to the album’s boss level 17 minutes of ‘Frosthart’, rent with unfathomable spatial parameters which they steadily flood with a raw but disciplined torrent of needling distortion."
