PNEUMATIC HEAD COMPRESSOR
oct / nov 2018
Founded in 1994 by the Masson brothers, Christophe & Régis, Pneumatic Head Compressor returns with a new album called « Hyperfidy / Superversion ».
It’s been a while since « From Freddy To Lemmy ».
As a matter of fact, PHC’s intense compositions are the result of a long maturation process (the group finds it funny to call it a putrefaction process).
Lest we forget, the fraternal duo has been involved in Magasin 4 for a long time. As one of the last fortresses of alternative music in Brussels, it is fair to say they had a lot on their plate; one might even wonder when these DIY aficionados —who record, mix and create their artwork by themselves—have found the time to finalize this record and share the stage with bands such as Goldflesh, Zu, Hint, La Muerte, Le Singe Blanc…
Throughout the 7 tracks of « Hyperfidy / Superversion », we find the dense, uncompromising, unstructured and pounding music Pneumatic Head Compressor cherish: oppressive, tortuous grooves, raging lyrics and… well… ape-like vocalizations put into a shaker with industrial, metal, hardcore, doom, electronic and experimental sounds. A harsh man/machine duel that sums them up pretty well.
The brothers’ desire to make the listener jump into dark, murky waters and to keep him breathless until the end of the listening experience is remarkable.
« Hyperfidy / Superversion » is available on LP via M4Music, Tandori Records, 666 La Chasse, Rockerill Records, Aredje, Attila Tralala et en CD via Cheap Satanism Records et Urgent Disk Records.
