ANALFABETISM Av Hjord Ar Du Kommen CD. Digipak
Swedish industrial is a unique strain with an often defining and noticeable sound, forged in part by the legacy of early Cold Meat Industry, and further fuelled by cold winters, alcohol, and mundane factory work. Analfabetism captures that original spirit. Grizzled veteran Frederik Djurfeldt (Knös, Severe Illusion) creates back to basics, stripped down, bare bones old school industrial; relentless cold frequencies and sinister atmospheres fleshed out with samples, looping dirge, and pounding machine clangs, and neatly wrapping it in an embrace of distortion and mechanized gloom. Analfabetism takes the torch and leads the charge towards a future that suddenly looks bright, even if it sounds hopelessly bleak and apocalyptic.
