Title: Deformation Receiver
Format: 7"
Label: Dead Mind
Country: Netherlands
Price: $6.00
Edition of 200. 2012 release by Hiroshi Hasegawa of C.C.C.C., Nord, etc. “Astros “Deformation Receiver,” decked in cloudy gray cityscapes, sees another weathered veteran propel abuse at his listeners. This time around there are no overtures towards concept art; instead Hiroshi Hasegawa reaches straight for the trachea with his screechy brand of harsh. There really is nothing quite like a noisester in his third decade of activity… there is a massiveness to this sound that is lost on many of the fledgling noise acts of today. Consider the heft of "Hurricane Crash," in which curlicues of metallic shrapnel creak out of a thick, static background. "Deformation Receiver," meanwhile, evokes a video game where the protagonist is summarily dropped into a deadly pit with each new game. Arising from the void, the squelchy electric noise-blade swings juicily, over and over, continually peppered by a miasma of shit. There is no escape from the evisceration that awaits you, Super Mario.” - Dead Mind.
