Prurient - Cocaine Death

'Cocaine Death'

Genre/s: Harsh Noise, Power Electronics
For Fans Of: Alberich, Macronympha, Grey Wolves, IRM, Pharmakon

Chances are you've probably heard of Prurient if you fancy yourself as a noise fan. Dom Fernow's power electronics project has been going for over a decade now, releasing everything from noisecore to dark wave to 15 minute tracks of pure feedback. On Cocaine Death, Fernow utilizes horribly distorted synthesizers with his trademark amplifier/microphone to create walls of sound that recall both his earlier works and synthwave. The vocals are more dominant in the mix (though still heavily processed with effects) which combined with the whirling vortex of synth and noise in the background make for a formidable slab of noise. Cocaine Death isn't Prurient's most harsh release (check out Black Vase or Troubled Sleep) but it's just as menacing and foreboding as anything in his catalogue.
