The aim of the album was to make it abrasive and unpleasant, as a warning of what could happen if all the world lived in computers. The music was made so that it would be impossible to play without the aid of a computer, and it really gives off that stiff, robotic, artificial sound that is unpleasant to the ear, but can be refreshing for the mind of a disenchanted melomaniac. It’s weird and it takes you spiralling into the depths of motherboards and circuits while being screamed at by a distorted digitized voice.
Well, that’s something strange as I’ve not seen in a while. Describing itself as a “computer metal” one-man project, Laksamana, from Des Moines, Iowa, sounds like Jute Gyte’s more experimental, barely-even-metal albums, with vocals added on top. And this one truly reflects the spirit of our blog, which you can grasp by reading our name out loud.
