Aeons 05:24
Hope ? 06:34


Noise, destructive behaviour, hatred, sadness, gridlocked and incapable of self reflection, sleeping just to suddenly wake up to see what's left of us.... and in the end there is only HOPE? [basementgrrr] returns one year after the “soul striptease” of “Hurt”, and is set to prove again he’s not a man to play it safe: Considerably harsher than its predecessor, “Destroy Everything” largely discards harmonic electronica and opts for a bleak dark ambience interrupted by upfront guitar riffs and electro sequences atop shuffled drum beats. The sound may change, the invariable in the output of [basementgrrr] is the authentic, heartfelt nature of his music: A storyline of struggle, self-doubt: Should one react to the hostile nature of society with retreat, “Turn up the volume so I can not hear the world scream?”

“The Noise of Destruction in a Distance + Pitbull” is the entire album in a nutshell: A desolate monochrome soundscape breaks into a driving drum pattern and a build-up of aggressive sequences. Some moments of relief are found nevertheless, as in the downbeat elegance “Lazy Shiny God” or the almost dreamy post-rock meanderings of “Aeons” and “Leaving is not the answer” – which leads to the conclusion of hope, a majestic, grave outro, carefully forward-thinking, but not promising it would be easy for sure.
