If the health of a nation can be tracked to the health of its soil, Zerfallmensch have created a soundtrack to our new scorched earth. Comprised of Ohm Resistance illuminati Submerged (Kurt Gluck) and haZMat (Mark Bostdorf), Zerfallmensch represents the fearless, boundary-crashing roots of Ohm Resistance, reimagined in the post-apocalypse of 2044.
A brazen, noise-laden, confrontationally hardcore affair from start to finish, “Dirteaters” is an ambitious portrait of societal collapse – ironically composed deep in the relative calm of upstate New York by two of electronic music’s modern masters. From the atonal, feedback-drenched “Dirt Pig” that opens the LP to the itchy ambience of “Walmart Dope Ripoff” through to the album’s apocalyptic climax of “Dirt Worship”, all ten tracks conspire to provoke as much as they evoke in the listener.
Fans of vintage Nasenbluten or Noize Kreator will have found a 2016 redux of the pre-millenium, no-fi approach in Zerfallmesnch and “Dirteaters”. 10 tracks. Zero fucks. As ghastly as it is beautiful in its sonic defoliation, Ohm Resistance is proud to ring in our big “4-0” with “Dirteaters”.
