Written during the second half of 2017, this is unambiguously the most mature release of industrial power electronics outfit Naxal Protocol. Arguably, it is also the harshest. Brought to you by the personnel behind 1990s Italian rhythmic power electronics cult act Cazzodio and half of the critically acclaimed Italo-Nippon old school industrial outfit CazzoKraft, this tape adopts a gangrenous acousmatic approach to build maximalist noisescapes with feedback loops, subtly rhythmic modular synthesis, rusted metal loops, and heavily processed field recordings. Inspired by the bleak materiality of dystopian nightmares suddenly becoming real, Naxal Protocol avoids the pretense of pseudo-conceptual anti-art, but also the boneheaded naiveté of copycat power electronics. This is a project rooted in cerebral viscerality, aimed at those who are aware that clinging to factual reality while enjoying virgin flesh is in itself the supreme act of defiance. A perverted message reasserting life as an experiment in excess.
