Blanck Mass – World Eater
Undoubtedly the best Blanck Mass record to date, ‘World Eater’ turns up the ferocity to rival Fuck Buttons, while carving an inimitable signature of its own. The ebb and flow is thrilling: devastating stretches of noise and the sudden drop into negative space feel equally massive. ‘Rhesus Negative’ takes off with all guns blazing and only crescendos from there, while ‘Hive Mind’s freak-show vocals amount to Powers’ most affecting track since ‘Sundowner’.
Best song: Rhesus Negative
