Serration is a Michigan-based duo that traffics in militant heavy electronics. Pulsing walls of industrial noise form a backdrop for menacing vocal assaults over the course of five tracks. This is the soundtrack for the pervasive global violence of the 21st century. Fans of labels like Tesco and Unrest Productions will find plenty to enjoy here.
If you're looking for the sound of kindling dread and cold alienation, this is the album for you. I'm used to Deathbed Tapes' output being a sonic assault, and artists whose approach to sound is to invariably push it "into the red". This however is so much more subtler, it's gentler pace drawing-in curious listeners, enveloping them in it's all too intriguing darkness. Ben Harris
