On this long-gestated follow-up to 2013's eponymous EP, Simon Pomery's Blood Music project continues to rage, syncing Taiko-inspired drumming patterns with vicious metal guitar dissonance and contact mic haptics. "Chicks" runs at a febrile EBM heartrate, pelting modular palpitations made alongside Russell Haswell against walls of guitar feedback-as-melody like a thuggish Keiji Haino. "Badgering" reengages the 'floor with improvised, squabbling electronics around rowdy drums and bugged-out vocal glitch, recalling Endless-era Pan Sonic and strobing Bunker acid parties. Luke Younger aka Helm's remix of "Chicks" uses electroacoustic phasing to reimagine the original's techno cravings and bring forward the original Taiko inspiration.
