Hear Objekts funk-addled Second Witness from debut album Flatland
Sep 30, 2014 3:44am | Fact Magazine

Objekt is due to crown a blistering run of singles and split EPs with his debut album on the unstoppable PAN next month.

Flatland, which we presume to be named after E. A. Abbott’s curiously mathematical 1884 novella, “imagines a world in which any scene can be seen from every angle at once,” the label explains. “Semblances and cross-references entwine the eleven original tracks and Objekts existing recordings, shaping a powerful and absorbing album that weaves between the alien and the hauntingly familiar.”

Ahead of its release, the Berlin-based ex-pat has shared the stumbling, funk-addled ‘Second Witness’ Stream it below and look out for Flatland on 2XLP, CD and digitally on October 20 scroll down for the tracklist.

Electric Wizard - Time to Die
Sep 30, 2014 3:18am | Drowned In Sound

Heres the deal: Electric Wizard are one of the heaviest, nastiest doom metal bands of all time. If youve ever listened to an Electric Wizard album before youll know what youre getting yourself in for. The songs are slow and built around crushingly heavy repeated riffs with lengthy jams. The vocals are distorted often to the point of incomprehensibility. Death and Satan are common themes in the songs and many feature samples from classic horror films, a classic Electric Wizard trope. In short, if youre already a fan of the band youll find Time to Die another pretty excellent entry in their canon and if you like your metal especially slow, detuned and evil then there arent many better places to start (although it goes without saying that you must also check out their 2000s stone-cold masterpiece Dopethrone as well).

But on to the specifics of the record itself. Its certainly a long album - in fact the longest Electric Wizard album to date - and sometimes exhaustingly so. Time to Die clocks in at a whopping 65 minutes, and only three of its nine tracks are under seven minutes long. Given that the opening trilogy alone will cost you over half an hour of your time, its something of a relief that track four, Destroy Those Who Love God, offers a much-needed break, as well as one of the more musically interesting things on the album.

Over burbling, textural, wall-of-noise guitars runs an ominous organ line and a repeated sa...


NehruvianDOOM - NehruvianDOOM
Sep 30, 2014 3:18am | Drowned In Sound

Its hard not to get terribly excited whenever the name DOOM is labelled on a record. The man consistently constructs some of the most interesting and intelligent hip hop on the planet, with a solo and collaborative discography as long as your arm and a backlog of production thicker than a badly made Victoria Sponge. The man is as talented as he is enigmatic and has recruited a young new protégé for his latest outing NehruvianDOOM.

Its no secret that a lot of todays greats did not get there completely by themselves; no man is an island and in the ever expanding world of hip hop sometimes it is a case of who you know. Eminem and Kendrick Lamar would be nowhere near the heights they reach today without Dre; we can thank Jay-Z for the narcissistic brilliance of Kanye ;and there would be no Drake without Wheezy. The latest in this tradition of young hopefuls, taken under the wing of an established giant, is Bishop Nehru, a 17-year-old rising rapper who has been given guidance by none other than The Villain himself and is ready to remind you just how little you had achieved before you hit legal drinking age.

Although MF DOOM is no stranger to collaborations, this is the first where he really takes the opportunity to showcase young talent the Madvillain releases were a coupling of two greats, where this sees DOOM pair up with a relative unknown. The synergy between the two is jaw-dropping; DOOM handles the production and, for the most ...
