Reptiljan makes noise.
Not rhythmic industrial or hard distorted techno but real noise.
The Finnish artist Reptiljan makes noise which is as powerful as can be hoped for and maintains the listener’s interest with a varied output of constantly changing sounds and textures.
The long-winded title refers to the eating of old skin and is thought to allude to Reptiljan’s return to the pure noise of his 2002 debut album after a temporary diversion into more beat driven territory.
The main progression here is the conversion from working with digital means to completely analogue sound sources, and the dilution of noise with some surprisingly musical elements is the principal way in which this album stands out from the noise crowd.
