Necro Deathmort - This Beat Is Necrotronic

Distraction Records, 2009

Strange cd that veers from dark electronica/techno/glitch to doom to ambient/drone music. The track "I Fought The Law..." sounds like a song I've heard before, but I can't for the life of me remember what. Any ideas?

"Necro Deathmort (Matthew Rozeik and AJ Cookson) raise their ignoble heads on their first proper release 'This Beat Is Necrotronic' on Distraction Records. Running the full gambit from jittering, skuttering brutal electronics, Earth-style drones (back when they had balls), creamy hiss, turntablist noise pedal effect antics, crushing guitars, elegant ballroom atmopherics, to full-on balls-out full decaying post-apocalyptic doom, this combines analogue and digital noise to devastating effect. The aural equivalent of Satan’s own crystallized jizzum.

This release had started off as a web-only outing, before us lot started in and said, fuck that, do you want to release it proper? And thank christ we did - we're dead proud of this one, especially seeing the end product. Easily the most accomplished 'noise' release on Distraction yet, this comes in fantastic three-panel double sided packaging by the dudes at Thumbprint Press and utterly superb artwork by Dominic Hailstone (Mogwai 'Batcat' and Isis 'Holy Tears' videos; Aphex Twin 'Come To Daddy' creature effects). Limited to 500 copies only, so don't sleep on this."

Their name sorta scares me, but the music isn't bad.

Cheers for sharing this dude. Just a quick one to say that if you fancy a physical copy, you can get it from http://www.distractionrecords.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=94 . We've only got 30 or so copies left from the original pressing, so be quick if you want one. . .
