given where respect is due. Lirim Cajani, Institut, sent in a copy of
this release himself because he wanted AP to do a review of it and CMI,
at this point, hadn’t sent one in. I only hope he likes what he
reads otherwise that’s the last thing we’ll ever receive off
him. Following on from the "Live like traitors, die like traitors"
release…found elsewhere but not my review I hasten to add…this
latest opus sees Institut working without band member Johanna Rosenqvist
for the first time. Fans of hers…for whatever dubious reasons…will
be heartened to learn she has her own solo outing released some time soon.
But we’re not here to sing her praises at this time. Lirim is the
man of the moment and that moment belongs solely to Institut. Let the
"The struggle never ended" is hardcore. Exceedingly hardcore
to the max. Eight tracks of the most unforgiving, unremitting, unsettling
extreme power electronics that is no walk in the park. If shouted, fanatical,
bellowing and distorted vocals over never ending "what the fuck is
that" scorching electronics that flambé s all before it then
praise the lard…deliberate spelling Jo…for this is just for
you. Another in a long line…if you put all the extreme music artists
in one continuous long line they would stretch from John O’Groats
to Lands End…of releases for all the outsiders for whom extreme
noise is the be all and end all. Lirim then is the James Dean for the
twisted generation. Rebel without a tune. There’s probably a serious
message being spouted on this recording…love & hate & politics
& injustice…but the vocals are so hard to decipher that you
have to make your own mind up on the content. Only the samples used give
some clue as to what the recording is about. Then again. No-body buys
this type of recording for the ‘message’. They buy it because
extreme noise has a place in their lives. The enjoyment of being subjected
to a form of music that’s sadistically masochistic. Lirim dishes
it out. We gratefully accept the punishment. "Forgive me father for
I have sinned". "That’s all right child. Say five hail
Mary’s and listen to Institut for three hours". Purges all
guilt in the end.
Which just leaves me to finish by saying that this new recording by Institut
is exactly how you think it will sound. No compromises. No surprises.
Nothing but complete and utter aural chaos that screws with your head.
Could we ask for anything less from this brilliant sonic terrorist?
