BLK TAG
Collision/Detection v5 Front and Follow

Article written by Michael H - Sep 29, 2012

At this point in Front and Follow’s Collision/Detection series, I’m beginning to recognise some of the sounds that make up the pool from which contributing artists must draw their music. That said, any recognition is fleeting on BLK TAG’s addition to the project. Abandon hope listeners, for this CD drags your ears off to the deepest, darkest parts of the woods and commits unspeakable acts upon them. ‘We Buried the Hatchet in Bromine Chambers’ sets the scene with an odd combination of black metal guitar scraping and bowed gong electronics echoing around the trees before storm clouds gather and distant thunder erupts. ‘I am not in yr Love’ and ‘Watch Me Pull a Tool Box Outta Yr Chest,’ continue the unease with drones, metallic bangs and grainy synth hum. Finally, ‘A Man with His Back to the Wall… Another Man Fending Him Off With a Chair’ closes this excellent release with ominous accordion loops, the howling of mutant wolves and a clanking procession of who knows what on their way to who knows where.

Possibly the best in the Collision/Detection experiment so far, this fifth entry is a hauntingly sick EP, perfect listening for the inevitable encroaching darkness of autumn.
