"Psychedelic noise" sounds like a guessed title for this output by one of the recent discoveries of METEK imprint "Attenuation Ciruit", which came from the sonic wit of Sweden-based sound artist Fredrik Nilsson, which didn't received so many feedback despite the considerable quality of sounds and their layering. The wisely forged noises that "Psychedelic noise" pull out of his machines got inoculated in both spacey and claustrophobic pad-synth-rendered empty spaces: strange landscapes, artificial lacerations, piercing low frequencies or digital noises come to life inside the narrow electric tunnels of "Montage", the cryptic whispers and the widely reverbered clashes of "Psychedelic noise", the fascinating void of Haptisk aterkoppling, the intermittent patterns of "Glitterer" , the abyssal recesses of Det Gar and the cold sikholes of "Doorplant". It comes on a carefully designed artwork by Sascha (own of the label), who wrapped this awesome release by means of exclusive artwork and is in folder cardboard sleeve, limited edition to 33 copies. Important also to mention in the recording featured the collaboration of the musicians: Vmood and Pythagora (Dan Pålsson), both from Sweden.

BIOGRAPHY : Fredrik Nilsson is the musician, DJ and producer who is behind the noise project METEK since 1983 and he currently lives in Malmo (Sweden). But METEK is not an static formule to make noise and more noise, but change (sometimes a lot) from sound really hrash and hard to ambient, drone or space landscapes. Apart the musician has also produced: glitch, electronic, techno, power noise, experimental, etc. At date he has published 40 albums and and several splits splits next to other projects such as: NRYY, Soma, RedSk, Earth Incubator, M.Nomized, Fascist Razorback, Razxca, Zreen Toyz, Lackthrow, Ego Death, Jan-M. Iversen, Black Madonna, Doki Doki… and many more. He has also been running b-side projects and “secondary” projects like: Incesthora, Elinor, 0301 or GAS, in addition to continuing with his task as a deejay. Another good qualities you have as a person (especially for his audience) is that 80% of his discography is exposed free download to everybody, without putting prices or profits, if not the opposite. In fact it has always declared Fredrik deeply some kind of "anarchist" and does not believe in the laws of the free Market and the State… but always in good music.




















REVIEW : far from the many METEK releases which have in common a kind of destructive harsh noise, this one, entitled "Episk ljudkatastrof IX" navigates into the ambient, drone and space withouth forget his personal noise textures of course. The good is there are two long tracks, twenty eight minutes each one where we can to listen to from electronic harsh noise to softer space, alternate, different times in only one track. You have just to leave your ears work, you relax and you not expect nothing but just listen meanwhile the "disk" turns. I completly ignore what is the strategy, formule or tactics, to make a track of almost half an hour during, full of gradual and soft changes which goes from abrassive noise to "empty" ambient music. Brief the result is truly surprising If you have already listened to other METEK releases, specially If these ones are extremly noise. With total respect to that kind of recordings, I personally prefer this another METEK side more interested in create slow noises, huge space landscapes and pure experimentations with small noises, echoes and "emptys". The CD was made and distribute by the australian label "Palinopsia Records" in a limited edition to thirty copies and also a mp3 format.
