Theologian & STROM.ec - Hubrizine
TumorCD68

Proper and overdue re-issue of a limited edition 12
cassette on Annihilvs released back in 2012. Hubrizine
was two years in the making and features source
material by Finland's mighty STROM.ec, undoubtedly
heralded as masters of the PE oeuvre, as reinterpreted
and re-engineered by Theologian, in celebration of a
shared appreciation for the works of Philip K. Dick.
From the opening moments, what immediately strikes
you is that this probably isn't what you thought it
was going to be, given the history of both acts.
Sure, there are a good deal of passages of volatility
and focused intensity as you might expect, but they
are complimented by an equal amount of passages of
hallucinatory ambience and cold, serene atmospherics.
It's this very dichotomy that makes this such a
masterful recording, and listening to it one sitting
becomes almost mandatory just to wrap your head around
the mind fuckery that unravels over its 7 tracks, as
celestial drift and horizon filling textures collide
with sudden eruptions of militantly hostile vocals,
machine clatter, blistering frequency pulsations and
writhing distortion. The title track is clearly the
centerpiece here...an epic and sprawling 18 minute
track of climatic and shimmering drones that
disintegrates into corrosive generator hum and
contorted loops with an insane vocal outburst that
rivals any STROM.ec output ever created. Hubrizine
clearly takes heavy electronics in a direction where
few have dared go, and few will ever match. In fold out
presentation folder with artwork by Andre Coelho
(Sektor 304).

"...a superb and mature release". Noise Receptor
