TAR095 DNMF - Smelter

Prolific experimental music purveyor Machinefabriek and droning free jazz combo Dead Neanderthals team up for the second DNMF album entitled 'Smelter'. Clocking in at nearly 40 minutes, Smelter is a highly dynamic amalgam of metal, drone and dark ambient and is hard to compare to anything else out there.

Smelter is a co-release between Moving Furniture Recoreds (CD/LP) and Tartarus Records (Cassette).

"It is in the corners where one finds the true treasures. See? Who knows what this might have been? I have found these fragments everywhere. Stains as well. Sounds. That which can be used, I have used.

Silence can never exist in a place which resonates with the past. I have thought about altars, cairns of sorts, but why would I try to appease this hall of echoes? They all whisper the same lines, coalesce into the same incandescent story of the what once weres.

Sleeping is never easy here, but I try. I have to. When the eyes and ears and lungs are filled with wonder and dust all day, the mind needs time to weave the patterns of understanding.

Harken! Hark. You heard them too. You heard them. You heard." -Johan van Hattum
