TRUP – KE (Ghost of Christmas Black Death Noise)


Oh shit it’s the ghost of Christmas future except it never goes away. So that makes it like a ghost of black death noise I suppose. As far as I can tell one of the freaks in TRUP made the cover of KE with a cheap phone cam and a hoodie but man it looks great. They remain a mystery in many ways, though I believe are likely connected to the loonies in Gruzja or Truchło Strzygi, or maybe Biesy. I don’t know, all those weirdos are always getting around and doing crazy stuff for Godz Ov War Productions, which is the primary front of the Polish underground, to me at least, and this sleeper will make anyone proud to admit they still buy CDs. Let the blackened noise snow flow over you.


TRUP are waking up to open presents at 1AM on the button. The night prior they have you awake but refuse sleep and demand your attention promptly as soon as the next day begins. The most desired present here is raw, punkish, blackened sludge that exists as a hideous mockery of music. KE is truly a splendid selection of nearly everything extreme, delivered in a venomous flurry of blackened noise. Though “black death noise” would perhaps be an adequate tag for the sake of explaining something about it, TRUP defy too many standards to be properly defined. They speak like shrieking cemetery gates and point to darkness with bony fingers. That’s all you need to know. Now listen.
