Fausten – s/t
Ad Noiseam adn167
12″ EP / CD / digital
April 22nd, 2013
This eponymous album sees these two producers shift from their dancefloor-oriented material to much noisier, darker and deeper waters. Featuring remixes by Oyaarss, Dadub and Ontal, it is perfectly at the conjunction of modern industrial sounds, dark technoish sounds and cold noise.
Heavy, dense, suffocating and massive: here comes Fausten, the new collaborative project by Monster-X and Stormfield. The whole is here more than the sum of its parts: far from replicating their breakcore, techno and dubstep solo tracks, these two musicians give birth here to a deep album which moves very slowly but does so with an unstoppable drive. Fausten’s début is a misanthropic, oppressive work which reunites noise with modern production techniques as only these two renowned musicians could; a colossal, smart and twisted monster of coldness and inhumanity, of distortion, beats and subtle details.
