Today is the four year anniversary of Holographic Beast. Not much happened this year in terms of sound making, for a variety of reasons. 2011 should see things the way they should be...

Review 2

I randomly stumbled upon this review over at HOLIDAYS today.

"Holographic Beast – Perpetual Filth (2009, Know/Care)
Posted in Holographic Beast, Know/Care by HOLIDAYS on July 27, 2010
Starting off rather spacey and ambient, this debut release may comes immediately off rather tame and dreamy within the first few seconds like a call of sirens, but quickly pulls you into a two-faced journey of comfort and hostility. Perpetual Filth is a release to be reckoned with, presenting 40 minutes of juxtaposed styles, going back and forth numerous times before concluding so elegantly, making the entire listen well worth the time spent.

Rarely is filth so wonderfully matched up with blissful, memorable moments of softly handed sounds, as it rears its impeccable nature of tortured spurts of blunt desperation and fierce sounds, lending to best quality of this release- a wonderful array of sounds that can cater to most any fan of the noise genre.

Holographic Beast has initiated themselves wonderfully in the genre with a very presentable tape featuring great labels and very pro, glossy j-card. Limited to 100 copies, Perpetual Filth has been available for quite some time, and is still very well accessible and recommended for any fan under the rather large noise umbrella, as there’s plenty of sounds to appreciate. Future rotations are certainly in the forecast as well.

A Review

Excellent. After being out for nearly a year (July 10 2009) my album finally got its first review, in the new issue of Witch Kunt:

"Holographic Beast. "Perpetual Filth" C-40 Know/Care Sounds.
I am extremely impressed with the tracks on this tape. Holographic Beast clearly understands that there's a fine line between pulverizing audio damage and epic contemplative experimentations. When it is done right the results can be astoundingly good. This has the perfect amount of brutality and sublimity. Beautiful tone excursions scrambled up by cold hearted thunder and sadistic crunch. When you aren't having some vulgar clods of graveyard dirt dumped on you there will be moments where you are getting swept away. This is some true Pacific Northwest experimentation that will get play of air time on your cassette deck. Serious dark and intriguing listening for the true noise fiends. Get this or get fucked."

Much appreciated.

Dance To The Radio

Tonight my interview conducted by Marlo Eggplant from the International Noise Conference in Spokane last month will air on the Allergen Special Showcase on Hollow Earth Radio. Between 11pm and 1am. Some of my music will be played too I believe. Check out how awkward I probably sound.
