S.I.S.S.I.G. - Falsehood
Industrial Hardcore Now, I've been meaning to cover some of the releases that the Noisj label has been putting out quite frequently, and I finally find myself able to give thought and recognition to one of their more recent outings. Just ont he 26th of February, Noisj released an EP from Nawoto Suzuki, a name I have never heard of before. Looking into his past, the Japanese man has a history of producing pulse pounding beats from varying genre to genre, allocating all frequencies and feedback with traditional Japanese based noise (more commonly referred to as "Japanoise").

Either way, the dude has been kicking ass and taking names for a good long while, and thus under the moniker S.I.S.S.I.G., he partnered up with Noisj to release Falsehood, a four track EP of shattering industrial hardcore that will not be for the faint of heart.

Completely slamming all my expectations came in the highly visceral and forest burning Vacuity, which put forth a riveting beat that intermingled with static feedback and that oh-so-lovely random noise effects that completely rock. Not so focused on putting out an extremely hard rhythm as it was focused on what I would describe as a factory like setting, Falsehood (the title track) may have been hard on the ears, but it went over well.

Wedge came in next, and each rhythmic pulse that endured throughout the song was followed by plenty of bombastic noise embrace. And, lastly, Marrow introduced some chiptune like sounds within the other sounds we got used to. I will admit, I was not fond of this song as I was with the others. I like noise, but the lighter and brighter electronic sounds just did not mix well with the rest of the song.

BUT, with three solid tracks out of four, there's no denying that this EP was well worth it. Fantastic feedback, great noise mixed with jarring and incredible beats made this a fun EP, and I'm looking for more from this artist.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
