New review for Asolaar’s “Interceptor”

Had Suicide successfully evolved from the seventies it might have become Asolaar’s “Interceptor”. Asolaar wastes absolutely no time in setting the physical borderline violent atmospheres. Similar to Pan Sonic’s harsh work, Asolaar tends to work in the lower rumbles of sound making it felt as much as heard. Bass frequencies are phenomenal for the collection. Fortunately Asolaar makes good well-organized frenzies of sound ready to absolutely flatten the listener.

Far away disembodied snippets of voices define the opener “Temor Al Autovox”. Near silences are used as ways to disorient the listener. The sounds reach a fevered pitch for the final stretch destroying everything in its way. “Interceptor” takes a confrontational approach to its sound a mix of punk and noise brought together into a wonderful aggressive partnership. Noise, the thing that had been threatened on the previous tracks, comes in as white noise for the unstable “Cruce Magnético II”. Rhythmically it appears to progress forward until it collapses under its own weight. “Lord H. Mohawk” takes an expansive view of sound akin to Earth’s early threat-infused drone work. By far one of the album’s highlights the song manages to go beyond the threatening noise and create a mood that is almost contemplative.

“Random Violence” is perhaps the most straightforward track on the entire album. Actually not random it is an incredibly well-crafted song akin to a noise-infused rave-up. It offers a view of order among the chaotic tracks. “Lu In Dimension” ends the entire album off on a distorted wavelength. “Interceptor” is an excellent album full of satisfying sheets of noise.
