Black Pus // PUS MORTEM
Black Pus, the side project of Lightning Bolt’s Brian Chippendale, released a new digital album this week titled PUS MORTEM. This guy and his music have been around long enough that you most likely already know how you feel about them, good or bad. Personally PUS MORTEM is just about all I’ve listened to for 24 hours now. These rhythms aim for the chest and either they crack your sternum and inject themselves straight into your heart or they simply bounce off, leaving you feeling nonplussed.
The most instantly recognizable quality of Black Pus’ music is that it initially seems extremely chaotic. Frenetic and somewhat primal drum beats literally leave no room to breath on this thing, guitars are distorted to the point where they are little more than buzzing, crunching noise all while Brian’s somewhat obfuscated vocals are shouted at you through what sounds like a megaphone. It’s an intensely disorienting cacophony of noise at first, but the more you let it sink in the clearer it’s bigger picture becomes. If you are into noise or experimental rock then PUS MORTEM is a must-hear.
