GAS CHAMBER: Self-titled: 7” flexi

I remember back in the ‘90s when powerviolence bands started experimenting with noise. Mainly, they were following the footsteps of Man Is The Bastard / Bastard Noise. The results were pretty forced and subpar. More than ten years later, hardcore bands and the like are starting to try their hand at it. And this time the results are better. This is the Gas Chamber from Buffalo, NY who put out the dark stuff doing noise. This is pretty good. One piece with a cold drone that borders on white noise. Tones rise and fall, with some sounds hovering like alien space craft. The sort of music to zone out to, contemplate, and eventually come back down when the song is over, or until you tire of moving the stylus back to the beginning.
