A Shield of Defence and the Word of the Son of Blood (Ezor Magen U-ne‚um
culture and history, I’m shamed to say, I know very little about.
I know that for some reason, which I still can’t fathom out, the
Jews have been persecuted since the beginning of time. I’m also
aware of the atrocities and genocide that the Jews have had to tolerate
in the 20th century and that hatred hasn’t disappeared even today.
That is the sum of my pitiful knowledge.
When I saw the cover stating "Militant Jewish Industrial" I
was slightly worried that here might be a propaganda exercise put to music
that would be off-putting to those intolerant of all things Jewish. Forget
those preconceptions. Put aside your religious bigotry and just enjoy
a great piece of power electronics. Barzel
work very much within the styles of Propergol, Folkstorm,
Today I’m Dead etc. Utilising samples from radio / film and distorted
vocals over ear crunching noise this recording will go down as a classic
amongst fans of this genre. Huge waves of reverberation threaten to blow
up the speakers as the sonics go into overload mode. Throbbing with the
power and energy of a nuclear blast the music of Barzel
deserves a place within anyone’s collection. Awesome in other words.
Clear your mind, clear your room of precious ornaments, and be prepared
to experience the second coming in power / noise electronics.
