At last, Kevin Drumm's classic 2002 album sees a full vinyl release, including a bonus track. Crank it! Utilizing guitar, tapes, mics, pedals, analog synthesizer and some computer assistance, Chicago's own Kevin Drumm concocted a sonic beast with Sheer Hellish Miasma. One is taken on an intense journey of storming feedback, open audio onslaught and somewhat savaged sonics. The extreme end of anarchic electronics and possibly a hint of musical violence is present throughout much of the disc. An essential release capturing Drumm at his most ferocious and most inventive. It's an exhilarating, visceral test of endurance brimming with demonic humor and a tour of Drumm's ever-expanding sonic palette. For seasoned noise veterans, Sheer Hellish Miasma offers a bracing soundscape filled with exquisitely abrasive textures and more than enough hidden detail to warrant repeated listening -- a distinct voice in the increasingly same-sounding world of abstract electronic noise. For everyone else, Drumm's journey through the noisy underworld is likely to inspire fear or, in an optimistic case, fearful admiration. This reissue comes with an additional track, "Impotent Hummer," taken from the same period -- a 13-minute drone piece that draws the listener into the forthcoming blizzard. In total? A din of arms, the fierce swell of damaged drone and the shriek of subtle, shifting sonic slaughter ... for the seasoned, a bountiful sonic feast awaits, for the meek it's intense and rewarding -- noise rarely sounds this exhilarating. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, September 27, 2010 by Rashad Becker. Deluxe gatefold sleeve with gold foil lettering on the cover.
