Rot In Hell/Psywarfare/Magic Bullet Records/2013 Split Album Review

  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  Belgium's  Rot  In  Hell  and  Psywarfare  both  side  project  of  Integrity's  Dwid  with  both  projects  being  harsh  noise/power  electronic  which  was  released  by  Magic  bullet  Records  in  the year  of  2013  and  we  will start  off  the  review  with  Rot  In  Hell  which  mix  harsh  noise  with  neo-folk.

  Their  side  of  the  split  begins  with  some  harsh  power  electronic  and  loop  sounds  and  after  awhile  you  can  hear  nature  sounds  into  the  music  before  calming  down and  adding  in  some  classical  guitars  and  a  few  seconds  later  spoken  word  samples  start  making  their  way  into  the  song  as  well  as  some  melodic  clean  singing  vocals which  evolve  into  some  aggressive  sounding  hardcore  vocals while s till  utilizing  the  clean  singing  in  certain  sections  and  after  awhile  the  noise  and  avant  garde  sounds  return  to  the music  while  also  keeping  around  the  acoustic  guitars  and  towards  the  end  flutes  make  their  presence  known in  the  music  and  their  side  of  the  split  closes  with  the noise  elements.

  Song  themes  and lyrics  cover  war  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Rot  In Hell  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  harsh noise  and  neo-folk  with  the  best  music on  the  split  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  project.  RECOMMENDED.

  Next  up  is  Psywarfare  a  project  that  plays  harsh  noise/power  electronics.

  Some  ambient  noise  sounds  along  with  some  people voices  in  the  background  before  going  into  a  harsh,  loud  and  brutal  direction  along  with  some  high  pitched  screams  and  as  time  goes  on  by  the  music  starts  getting more  diverse  in sound  while  remaining  harsh  and  brutal  and  in  certain  sections  spoken  word  samples  are  added  in.

  Song  themes  cover  war,  while  the  production  has  a  very  dark,  brutal, raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Psywarfare  are  a  very  great  sounding  harsh  noise/power  electronics  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  the  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED.

  In conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  harsh  noise  and  power  electronics.  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
