I am of course presuming that Mordor had analog synths, liked to torture guitars, and used amplifier/mic tapping overload, but this seems like a safe guess. I don't usually go for "noise music" as such, but the fact that this is structured so well, doesn't go on forever thus overtaxing the listener's ear, and even seems to have riffs of a sort present in the chaos gives this appeal for me, while throwing the claim of the cover, "Noise Not Music" into doubt. Sorry guys, this is loud, painful and disconcerting while remaining music. Very MOVING music.
Track descriptions: The first track starts quietly enough, although there are some things clunking, popping and tapping around. An Albert Ayleresque sax enters the melee at some point, then there is this horrifying sound which defies description-this is the sound Hell makes. I think we are into the second track, "Lake Of Roaches." Other favorites include the title track, freakin' loud again, but again, there is the semblance of a riff going on here. Track five, "Rusted Mange." I think the singer is saying he "hates" something...Track six is another ambient soundscape of Hell, but this one is almost soothing, relaxing at some points. This is especially nice, showing this band's capacity for loud/soft dynamics, employing them with skill. Track seven, "The Driller," is another riff-rocker, with sampled dentistry. As a third-shifter, my best recommendation for listening is waking up in complete darkness, throw the disc on, crawl back into bed and listen as you slowly wake up.
