Hoor-paar-Kraat & Fecalove - Dyonisus- Dyonisos [Goat Eater & Turgid Animal - 2008]

Dyonisus- Dyonisos harness the surreal sound scapeing of Hoor-paar-Kraat and the seething noise power of Feaclove to create something quite unique and rewarding in its own right away from either parties already impressive work.

Firstly let’s start with the artwork which as usually with anything put out on the Goat Eater label is something rather special, arty and handmade. The cd comes in a handmade paper folder with a tracing paper slip paper to hold the cd in that’s also embossed with a wax stamp, inside there’s a slip of tracing paper watermarked with three branch pattern– very classy.

So on to sound within the cd features two tracks totalling 35 minutes in all. First up we have the track Bacchanalia which starts off with a series of junk like metallic/ noisy sounds and amped up tape textures. In the back ground there are strange harmonic music box like patterns & odd chattering voice textures that all sound like there been heard through water, the noise element soon lessens leaving the amped tape textures and the creepy and sinister child like feeling of dread. Through out new noise textures bob up to the surface-like throbbing wall, searing edges, feedback shorts and storm textures, though they never take away from the dreamy odd atmosphere. The track has a great dense shifting feel to it- the sounds, noises and harmonic hints seem to hover around you in a dreamy underwater manner- really the whole track is wonderful hypnotic, enveloping, creepy and strange.

Lastly we have the track Oscoforia that opens up with a revolving eerier harmonic drone pitch, random percussive clattering, smoky jazz tone and simmering noise air that soon boils up nicely in industrialized attack with feedback shorts. Again the track has quite a shifting and eventful run with some great and strange elements, textures and field recordings been throw into the mix. Later on theres this clever mix of  people chatter added under the sound elements that’s a mix of the everyday banter, cryptic, creepy and bizarre chatter which is let here and there drift on it’s own strange path- with one voice that keeps saying ever so often “you did lock the door didn’t you?”. Also along the way we have tinkling harmonic/ haunted music box tone, some typical Feaclove sexualized groan ‘n’ moans and all manner of strange and violent sound matter. This track is a lot more fiery than the first but it still keeps it’s strange other feel.

Really one of the best collaborative efforts I can remember in any genre for a long while with both parties adding and producing very high quality work, with a nice balance between both sound worlds to create something very distintic,odd, violent and strange- really and truly total unmissble. Let’s hope they work together again very soon.
