The sludgy industrial project from Dave 8cylinder and Nick Breinich unveiled its debut, A Futile Stream of Commands (Darkfloor Sound), in October.
Over the course of six tracks (and five remixes, including takes from Luke Lund and Napalm Death’s Mick Harris), modular synths crawl all over each other like giant centipedes, while a drum machine pulses mercilessly into the slimy, metameric pile. “Melting Mammoth” lumbers with apocalyptic mass through a pixelated dust storm; its kick drum sounds like Godzilla’s footfall, while its high-end response cracks like a whip. The beat starts slow, drowns in a sea of white noise, and then comes back in double-time, swaying its hulking shape like an ogreish patron of some grimy dance dungeon.
