Kultus keeps it simple, three tracks filled with sonic drone outbursts with no melodies. Just raw croocked sound eruptions which have a metalized doom output. The rumbling drones come in random repetitive waves where nothing much happens. Is this boring stuff? No, the sinister drone structures show transcending pathways to darkened atmospheres without rhythm or beats. In fact Kultus sounds like Sunn o))) but with more fluctuations. Otto Kokke uses only synths to produce an almost endless loop of buzzing and growling noise. Knowing there won’t come much variation in this electronic tsunami we still paid attention to discover some glitches in its balance. Instead of finding deviation in the drone flow we were taken away in some kind of meditative trance.
Some may get a headache from listening to this digital album. Others like us had an intense healing of the eardrum. Sonic Pressure is an experiment with a positive result. Kultus produces depth-seeking sounds conceived with a nod to the worship of the amplifier. A fascinating world of electronic doom drones has been born.
