"The holes of glory" are absurd and dadaist: SUDDEN INFANT plays with our minds by the means of 45 minutes full of so much more than plain entertainment. SUDDEN INFANT is some kind of chaos, the compositions complex and multi-dimensional with classical noise parts, electronic synth licks or complete sample-based tracks. "The holes of glory" leaves room for your own interpretations and imagination, makes you reach for what lies underneath. willingly or not, you become part of these creations, making this record an absolute personal and individual experience. the unmatched history of SUDDEN INFANT releases is continued on raubbau: inspired by a fictional killer in the s&m scene of new york city, this work is the musical site of crime, made for you to discover.

I’ve wanted to get a Sudden Infant record for a while. When Carlos Giffoni wears your T-shirt and Daniel Menche links to your blog there is a good chance that suckers like me will notice and end up buying your  record. This came out last year and guess how many “Best of” lists it made? On my trawl of the interwebs: fuck all. That makes little sense because listening to Psychotic Einezelkind has to be one of the most pleasurable music experiences I’ve had this year. The music here (and yes it’s not just noise) is great. The opening track was like a cross between Gallon Drunk and Wolf Eyes with some Neubaten-like percussive abuse. The sort of goth-like Skullflower stuff that that bloke from Astral Social Club dismisses but I love. In fact the tracks for the most part are full of menacing bass with drone and noise elements thrown in for good measure. Despite its musical inclination this  record  has  moments which remind me that his bloke is almost European noise royalty  especially on the second track Deep Cuts which has that rolling sand storm of noise effect that Merzbow does so well. This is the record that no one heard last year and that’s a fucking travesty.
