Terrorizer wrote, “Now we know what the inside of David Lynch’s mind must sound like.” Quite the statement, eh? DNMF is the debut full-length of the collaboration between Dutch “heavy jazz act” Dead Neanderthals and the experimental ambient/drone artist Machinefabriek. Like its cover, DNMF’s unique traits that you can pick out of the white noise are sparse yet sharp. On “The Thing On The Doorstep,” the saxophone wails in to the maelstrom of distortion and drone – its wailing encapsulates agonizing pain and confusion.  “The Colour Out Of Space” brings forth a romping percussion section and the guitars’ drone becomes even louder. It gradually increases in noise level but in such a way you don’t notice it – much like a lawn mower constantly revving outside the walls of your home. You only notice how loud it’s been once it shuts off almost as abruptly as it came in to its near twenty minute existence. Check out the Bandcamp stream of DNMF below and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details

"Now we know what the inside of David Lynch’s mind must sound like" - Terrorizer

DNMF is a collaboration between Dutch heavy jazz act Dead Neanderthals and Dutch ambient/drone experimentalist Machinefabriek. Drawing energy from ancient cosmic entities, they have managed to create a hideous monstrosity.

“I felt myself on the edge of the world; peering over the rim into fathomless chaos of eternal night”
– H.P. Lovecraft –

DNMF is a primitive life form floating through the vastness of empty space. A hulking mass of sound originating from an intense collaborative process that forced both Dead Neanderthals and Machinefabriek to explore new musical ecosystems in order to accommodate each other’s long-winding, droning, and harsh constructions.
