Trensmat Records offers rather superb summaries of all their releases, which in turn lightens my load in terms of trying to describe what’s in store for you. Whirling Hall of Knives’ Devisions lays down noise, super filthy and grungy psych rock, ritualistic chimes, roaring drone and more. Trensmat hits the nail on the head with comparing the intro track to “Neu/Suicide via Sunn O)))” and that comparison can definitely be used on a few more tracks. Within Devisions, the listener will be kept on their feet and will not get bored with the heterogeneous conglomerations contained within each of these well-done tracks. If you’re looking for something experimental, well-varied, and heavy then look no further – Devisions might be the right record for you. If the material alone isn’t enough to get you sold, just look at the vinyl design. The quantity of copies left isn’t specified either, so waiting around to buy this is not advised from the way the label describes it as the “LAST REMAINING COPIES.” To check out an album sampler listen to the Soundcloud stream below and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details




We're very proud to host the 5th LP by the inimitable Whirling Hall Of Knives. On 'Devisions' their unique blend of psyche electronics has been wildly expanded to encompass elements of kraut, doom, alt-techno, shoegaze & all things noisey, greasy and grime-flecked.

Things really start kicking off with 'Wraith / Donn Amok' which walks the tightrope of Neu/Suicide via Sunn O))) and makes it to the other side. 'Alternate Devil' keeps it up (the full unedited version) - droned out blackened krautmetal with a thick/corrosive buzz, churning and roiling and being pulled along in the wake of pounding hypnotic drums for its first half before blissing out and dropping into the woozy and slowcore dreaminess of 'Myrekrig'.

Flip for the blast of '9xReal' and its dramatic waterfall of cascading drums and guitars washing into shards of overblown bass distortion and vox. 'Tapheslip' flows out next, a shimmering swirling sonic lava - three chords good, two chords better, one chord best! Onwards to 'Immureme', a vortex of flanged guitars, a slowly unfurling melody, the notes crumbling and blown out.....thick peals of smoldering psychdrone give way to some smokey Morricone-ish drift, haunting and abstract. The LP wraps in style with the epic 'Lonclusion' - a fractured melodybox buried under an avalanche of ghostly techno allusions, angular glitch and twisted noise.


The LP comes with digital copies of the tracks on the vinyl. Pre-orders will be immediately sent a link to the download package in 320Kbps MP3 format.
