Blood Moon

"Possibly one of the most genuinely involving noise projects I've come across recently... Each piece sounds like they've laid their hands on the instruments for the very first time and are mightily pissed off about it... Blood Moon sound something like early King Crimson if they had been twenty years later and spent most of their time undergoing experiments with Electro Convulsive Shock Therapy... Sonic colour mixing through liquidisation."
