HOW TO KILL

How To Kill Detroit returns with more of their unique, speaker-testing SLUDGE sound; fresh off the streets of the D. Two of the scene's dominating forces (and early pioneers), Marshall Applewhite and The Friend here on a collaborative match up full of attitude and mayhem. "Where Is Harry Truman" kicks things off with a near rabid slo-mo acid assault. Biting, lazer-beam 303s circulating against a pitch down Dance Mania beat (the genre's typical ident). "Your Gut (A/S/L)" keeps the vibe going as the deadly duo turn the resonance down but the low pass filter up for some throbbing sub-bass acid, peppered with mechanical drums and saturated, pumping sidechains. "Axif" opens the B-side with gliding, pitch bent tones sweeping over heavily fucked up vocal sections, pummeling drums and horror sound effects. A dark, menacing ride into the sludge sound executed with the accuracy of a serial killer. "Axig" tears apart the master tape as Applewhite & Friend set to destroy the recording medium through sheer hardware abuse. Cavernous drums careering through thick walls of reverb and black matter, the occasional acid niggle signifying changes in the conscious state. Finely, "Blark" sees us tumble into a bath of lysergic acid, all self-consciousness dripping out of every orifice as the HTK mob deliver the most haunting dose of psychedelic technoize to ever have existed. This sludge sound can take some getting used to, don't get me wrong, but with Applewhite & The Friend, How To Kill have found their opus. Highly recommended!
