HotGuitars - "Confessions"
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: July 2004
Yet, another Circle or ex-circle member side project. Here is featured the duo of Jyrki Laiho & T-mu Korpipää. This is a short EP with 4 tracks and features only guitars and banjo with some sound editing in the form of computer beats (I guess). Budapest Bukkake is 8 minutes of a pounding beat with crazy guitars layered over the top. Pretty much a noise fest! What are they doing to those guitars?? Strangulation... Laxitive Liquid Oxygen has a rudimentary beat over which one guitar player skanks and the other tortures his guitar. Linedancing 75 Leonard Ave features a tortured banjo. In the veins of the wicked judases, jesuses and the confidential mileage ends the CD. What is the point?
