Katarrhaktes’ re-interpretation of Pentecostal Chip Shop Holocaust’s debut EP is painted with acid, weaving EBM-influenced dance hooks and orchestral ambience through a deluge of digitally crucified percussion.
The Xallarap Investigation is a muted affair, favouring stripped back, simplified waveforms to the densely programmed sound fields of prior releases.
It’s dense, distinctly electronic in design, and has the duality of abrasiveness coupled with frailty that one might associate with the name.
Katarrhaktes is not responsible for any damage you may inflict upon yourself while listening to this compilation. You have been warned.
Katarrhatkes takes music and makes noise. This collection of remixes weaves the unexpected sources with his own brand of pure sonic mayhem, to create unrecognisable choral drones, noise avalanches and cavernous chambers of sound.
Paranoia, fear, anxiety, adrenalin, loathing, caffeine and alcohol. In musical form.
