Sanctum - Let's Eat
Experimental, Industrial Sanctum was formed in 1994 by Jan Carleklev and Håkan Paulsson and has from then the members has increased and decreased. When coming to live performances they use Ulrica Carlsson for visual effects, although she's the third constant member of the group. When recording 'Let's Eat' they invited Sara Lo av Ekstam.

It has been a while we heard something from Sanctum. Some things needs some time to grow and become better. And in this case it was well spent time because the music has evolved into a new sound, much harsher and brutal than before. This is aggressive music. Makes me think of punk music a little. There is much shouting and growling, harsh industrial sounds and beatings. It's simply hard. But it calms down, and then the hard and aggressive is still there, lurking in the background waiting to burst out again.

This record is great. It should be bought. If not for the music, then for the best explanation ever for how and when a piece of music is born. Read the booklet and listen to the songs "Foodchain", "Lie Low" and "Sister" which are my favourites. We can count in the soft "A Pose" to the favourites as well. There's going to be many hours in my stereo for this record, and that's my final word on this subject.
