Richard Ramirez "Anwar" Cassette
"Anwar" is a reissue of one of Richard Ramirez's classic 90's releases. Originally released on Deadline Recordings in 1994, here we find one of the originators of American harsh noise doing what he does best. Scrap metal and filthy electronics are manipulated into massive walls of textural violence that slowly unfold over the course of 60 minutes. Richards influence on both the "americanoise" sound and the later harsh-noise-wall subgenre is readily apparent, but no other noise artist manages to create as varied and intense music with such a minimal approach.
