    Control Human Delete : "Terminal World Perspective" (2007)
    ~ Code 666 / Aural Music ~

    Annonciateur de la fin des temps, Control Human Delete colporte la mauvaise parole sous forme musicale. Chaotique, ultra-virulent et d'une noirceur exquise, le post-Black de ce groupe hollandais extirpe votre âme de son enveloppe charnelle pour l'emporter dans un voyage sonore dont elle ne reviendra pas sans séquelles… Au moment où je vous parle, le miasme dépressif de "Terminal World Perspective" me ronge petit à petit, agrippant mon esprit et l'entraînant dans un vortex infernal dont l'issue n'est certes pas de bon augure. Alors que je suis englué dans ce marasme envoûtant, au beau milieu du recueil, une déferlante vient me cingler les oreilles ; la bête se réveille… Il est clair, après écoute complète de cet album génial, que celui-ci comporte deux facettes avec lesquelles CHD joue avec brio ; l'une très ambiante où les nappes de clavier s'acharnent à vous ôter toute joie et l'autre où les guitares, les parties vocales et la programmation batterie (poussée aux limites de l'entendement) surgissent des tréfonds de l'enfer pour arracher toute forme de vie… Tout au long de l'opus, les 2 modes se succèdent, se croisent, se mélangent, forment une unité homogène et sulfureuse.
    Que d'images cataclysmiques… C'est bien la juste représentation des 9 émanations sauvages et venimeuses de cette production ô combien délicieuse ! Laissez vous contaminer par cette folie destructrice…

    Nuova proposta di Post-Black Metal da parte della Code666, che dopo aver tirato fuori un paio di conigli davvero succulenti dal proprio cappello l’anno passato (mi sto riferendo alle sfavillanti releases di Negura Bunget ed Aborym, peraltro gruppi con una notevole esperienza alle spalle), prova ora a scoprire qualche nuovo talento estremo in giro per l’Europa. Nel 2007, la prima scommessa della label nostrana è rappresentata dagli olandesi Control Human Delete, ultime reclute nel battagliero esercito di gruppi che nell’ultima decade, sulla scia dei pionieri Mysticum, ha provato a coniugare la poetica Black Metal con i taglienti suoni meccanici dell’Industrial e dell’Elettronica.

    L’ambizioso debutto “Terminal World Perspective”, propone un suono incredibilmente denso e pieno, fitto di velocissime violenze chitarristiche e ricolmo di abbellimenti elettronici, ulteriormente annerito dallo screaming del cantante Void, autore di una prova non particolarmente personale ma comunque adatta allo stile della band grazie ad alcune variazioni filtrate poste strategicamente in passaggi chiave. Meno positivo, invece, l’impatto della drum-machine, dal volume piuttosto rilevante nel mixing finale e per questo motivo capace di diventare fastidiosa dopo qualche minuto di ascolto, a causa dell’irreale velocità e standardizzazione dei suoni: dopo aver goduto della sorprendente organicità che il drumming ‘umano’ di Faust ha dato all’ultimo disco degli Aborym, tornare a questo insensibile ed insensato massacro elettronico è un’esperienza alquanto stancante.
    Le parti di tastiere costituiscono un accompagnamento molto apprezzato durante gli assalti Industrial-Black, ma il loro apporto qualitativo viene a mancare proprio quando sarebbe fondamentale, ovverosia nelle sezioni Ambient che sono sparse generosamente lungo tutto il lavoro: spesso prolungate oltremodo, solitamente dotate di melodie poco brillanti, sempre piagate da ritmiche di batteria totalmente prive di fantasia, quelle che potevano essere le carte vincenti di “Terminal World Perspective” divengono palle al piede dalla discutibile utilità e godibilità – significativi in questo (negativo) senso sia l’interminabile spartiacque centrale Dark Ambient “Transpherium" che il finale "Absolution", dotato di un'esigua manciata di idee spalmate su ben undici minuti.

    Presenti ad ogni modo, diverse note positive, tra cui spicca il notevole l’equilibrio raggiunto in brani come “The Creation Equivalence Principle” o “Spectrum of Divine Nature”, episodi che mostrano una band capace di alternare sapientemente sezioni devastanti ad altre più riflessive, e di saperlo fare con discreto talento; è anche buona la capacità del gruppo di picchiare in velocità, grazie ad un suono aggressivo ed a un buon tiro, anche se nel 2007 questo non basta più per riuscire ad arrivare all’eccellenza.
    Riassumendo, il debutto dei Control Human Delete non fa gridare al miracolo ed è dedicato solo ed esclusivamente a chi ha un profondo interesse nella scena Post-Black e nelle produzioni Code666, mentre tutti gli altri conviene che aspettino che i Control Human Delete tirino fuori un disco magari di durata ed ambizioni minori, ma dotato di un suono più conciso e meno dispersivo (l’adeguato sviluppo delle parti atmosferiche sarà probabilmente il cardine per il miglioramento della band), in cui le buone idee siano supportate da una maggiore coesione sonora e soluzioni melodiche di maggior pregio e brillantezza.
    Per il momento, ancora una promessa.

    Bleak, progressive, electronic-tinged black metal from this Dutch quartet, merging the metal guitars-bass-vocals set with synths and programmed beats. Surely not as sickly insane as their former label mates Aborym, CHD (Control Human Delete) opt for a colder and less in-your-face approach, while maintaining much of the fury of the genre. Their style reminded me a lot of evolved black metal acts like Thorns or Satyricon, both in the songwriting (tempo changes, varied guitar lines, etc.) and in the vocal department (not the yelled "satanic" tone, rather a raging, lower one), and the result is surely welcome to my eardrums. Let's say that the electronic element is nothing groundbreaking in itself, but they use it in a creative, unobtrustive manner, merging it well with the metal element (think of early Ephel Duath for a clue); the two dub-ambient tracks, "Transpherium" and "Absolution", are quite decent, though I surely prefer the metal parts. Maybe 71 minutes of this are a bit much, as the formula tends to get repetitive after a while, but fans of technical, leftfield black metal will surely appreciate this album, which is surely better than what you can guess reading this review.

    Control Human Delete - Terminal World Perspective

    Jaar van release: 2007
    Label: Code666

    [​IMG]

    Tot mijn grote verrassing trof ik enkele dagen geleden de promo van Control Human Delete’s debuutalbum Terminal World Perspective aan in mijn brievenbus. Tot voor kort had ik nog nooit van Control Human Delete gehoord. Mijn interesse werd gewekt door een sample van het nummer The Creation Of Equivalence Principle, die op enkele fora opdook. Ik was al snel verkocht. Wat ik hoorde was een stukje industrial black metal dat zich kon meten met de betere werken van Aborym en Diabolicum. Control Human Delete’s demo Error Spectre bevestigde dat idee bij mij, hoewel de demo wat tam klonk, vergeleken met de sample.

    Zo meteen meer over de muziek, maar nu eerst even een korte introductie over de band. Control Human Delete is een band van Nederlandse bodem en bestaat al sinds 2001. Het repertoire van de band wordt gevormd door de eerdergenoemde demo Error Spectre, die in 2003 is uitgebracht en het album Terminal World Perspective. Na het uitbrengen van de demo heeft de band wat optredens gegeven en is in 2004 begonnen aan het schrijven van het debuutalbum. Eind 2006 tekende Control Human Delete bij het Italiaanse label Code666 en bracht het album al snel daarna uit.

    Terug naar de muziek. Na het horen van de demo en de sample van The Creation Of Equivalence Principle was mijn verwachting dat ik een industrial black metalwerkje voorgeschoteld zou krijgen. Deels klopt dit, maar wat de band te horen brengt op dit album is veel meer dan alleen industrial black metal. Naar eigen zeggen brengen ze de luisteraar een geavanceerde mix van extravagante ‘new school’ black metal met industriële invloeden. Dit alles wordt overgoten met een dark ambientsausje, waardoor Terminal World Perspective een unieke luisterervaring biedt.

    De nummers op dit album zijn veelzijdig. Neem nu Protocol Of Systematic Belief. Dit nummer opent met een stukje industrial black metal, maar al snel daarna zakt het tempo en gaat het nummer langzaam over in een meer melodieuze soort black metal, met een soort van futuristisch geluid. Terminal World Perspective zit vol met dit soort afwisselende momenten. Het enige negatieve aspect wat ik hieraan ervaren heb is dat de ambient-achtige stukken soms de snelheid wat te veel uit de muziek halen. Verder niets dan positiefs over de muziek.

    Tekstueel gezien heeft de band op dit album ook het één en ander te bieden. Wie de website van de band bekeken heeft, zal de teksten niet gemist hebben. Teksten die gebaseerd zijn op werken van Diodorus Siculus, het Oude Testament, Immanuel Velikovsky’s The Four Plans Of The Universe, David Deutsch’s The Fabric Of Reality en enkele andere werken. Zware kost dus, maar op een manier verweven met de muziek waardoor je het je snel eigen maakt.

    Controle Human Delete’s Terminal World Perspective was een zeer prettige luisterervaring, maar geen gemakkelijke. Diepgang is wat de luisteraar hier voorgeschoteld krijgt. Verwacht het album dus niet in één of twee luisterbeurten te doorgronden, maar neem je tijd en blijf bij de les. Wie deze raad opvolgt zal al snel merken dat hij hier met een juweeltje te maken heeft.

    Tracklist:
    1. Eclipse
    2. Protocol Of Systematic Belief
    3. The Creation Of Equivalence Principle
    4. Spectrum Of Divine Nature
    5. Transpherium
    6. Operation: Genesis Reprise
    7. Sin Tide Manufacturing
    8. Global Storm Element
    9. Absolution

    Score: 85 / 100

    CONTROL HUMAN DELETE (NED)
    TERMINAL WORLD PERSPECTIVE Code 666
    Written by Filip Dupont

    With much fuss on various boards the members of Control Human Delete displayed their first full length "Terminal World Perspective". And they're damn right! We cannot wait for the next Thorns album to be released, which Snorre's announcing for about six years now. And also D¢dheimsgard spent eight years on writing their upcoming "Supervillain Outcast" (released this year). The world is screaming for a new hero in the modern black metal scene! After Control Human Delete's only demo "Error Spectre" in 2003, I was perplexed no label signed the Dutch industrials. Even then the demo contained all obliged blueprints a post-black metal album should have. Thank God Code666, the leading label in this genre (having bands like Ephel Duath and Aborym on their roster), embraced Control Human Delete in their flock and released "Terminal World Perspective" quite fast after the deal was set. Some months before its release the band put "The Creation Of Equivalence Principle" online and it pretty sums up all elements on this album. Guitar wise highly inspired by Thorns and Satyricon during their "Rebel Extravaganza" era – it's "Protocol Of Systematic Belief" that kicks off. The industrial elements are put more upfront than both bands I just mentioned do. Also the drum computer has got quite a mechanical sound and even though the band openly disagreed with me, there's won't be a single soul saying Control Human Delete are having a drummer of flesh and blood after hearing the inhuman bass kick inferno during the ending part of "Operation: Genesis Reprise". I totally support this way of drum sound – Real drums just can't suit the "Terminal World Perspective" science fiction-atmosphere. More than one hour the black metal factory is doing its shift, with instrumental highlights like the ambient inspired "Transpherium" and "Absolution". Without sampling Control Human Delete aren't the same anymore. I believe this rather young Dutch band can get the world on their feet. Many people are waiting for an album such as this cold and clinical "Terminal World Perspective". Can God create a puzzle so difficult, a riddle so complex that even he can't solve it? I'm sure Contol Human Delete can!

    From its origin, black metal has always been associated with the occult, myths and Satanism. Control Human Delete places black metal in a whole other perspective, what resulted in the thematically, stylistically and musically boundary pushing effort Terminal World Perspective.

    Musically the sound of Control Human Delete has much in common with bands like Thorns and the early Satyricon, especially the razor sharp production has a lot in common with the former. However, Control Human Delete’s sound is far more modern, because they draw their inspiration from the history of the entire earth, from which they describe their sinister vision on the future, rather than from the traditional black metal themes such as old myths and history of a single nation. Control Human Delete’s lyrics encompass earth’s evolution and the destructive nature of its inhabitants and the cover of the record shows futuristic machines near a waterfall wherein toxic waste is dumped.

    Naturally this stylistic refreshing approach has a major impact on their sound. Although the roots and basics of the music definitely lie with older black metal bands such as Satyricon, they developed a unique sound by making use of drum programming, samples and synthesizers. That’s right, these guys don’t have a real drummer and that’s one of the reasons the music sounds ultra tight. It also gives them the opportunity to strike the bass drums at inhuman, ultra high speed. At first I had get used to this and thought it was too artificial, but it really fits well with the entire futuristic feel of the band and creates a furious mayhem. I really wonder how this would be like live.

    There are a lot of surprising elements on this record. The fifth track, ‘Transpherium’ is a long ambient soundscape with a shivering, dark feeling. This track embodies ‘the present’ and therefore draws the line between the first songs about the past and the second part of the record which deals with the future. Throughout the record we hear attractive samples, some violins and the synthesizer adds a sinister vibe, but there are also less welcome surprises such as a lame nu-metalish guitar riff with the familiar pinches in ‘Protocol of Systematic Belief’ and bass drums which sound like a bouncing ball in ‘Operation: Genesis Reprise’. One could also say that the drum programming makes the record sound too one-sided. These downsides are, however, taken for granted because of the refreshing style and approach of the band.

    This record needs a real open mind towards musical and stylistic changes in the black metal scene. Those who have, should really try this one out, because the more you get into their material and lyrics, the more you will appreciate the great correspondence between the music and the entire theme and feeling of this band.

    Grenzerfahrungen sind der eigentliche Motor des Verstehens, Wegweiser auf dem Pfad der Erleuchtung. Geburt und Tod, Schöpfung und Vernichtung. Der Blick über den Tellerrand, der sich einst Erde nannte, der Blick zurück in Äonen der Vergangenheit, von denen uns das Licht erzählt, welches seit Jahrmillionen im All auf Reisen ist. Löcher im Himmel, Fußabdrücke auf dem Mond, menschliche Technik im interstellaren Raum - die Erde, sichtbar durch einen kleines Fenster in einer orbitalen Raumstation, klein und verletztlich erscheint sich gegenüber dem Größenwahn der Menschheit, sie beherrschen zu wollen.
    Es gibt Momente, in denen sich unser geistiges Auge öffnet und sieht - Dinge, die wir uns nie erträumt hätten, die unsere Vorstellungskraft sprengen, die unser Leben komplett verändern, oder vernichten können. Eine faszinierende Vorstellung dieser Art ist der Blick auf das Leben ansich, auf die Geschichte der Menschheit, wie sie begann, wie sie gegenwärtig abläuft, und wie sie sich in Zukunft entwickelt.

    Die Holländer von CHD öffnen uns auf "Terminal World Perspective" ein solches Fenster, ein Konzeptalbum vom Anfang und Ende der Geschichte, vom Anfang und Ende des Lebens. Das Album entfacht eine Urgewalt an Energie, es explodiert und die Fragmente entfalten ein vielschichtiges musikalisches Spektrum, welches seinen Körper in modernen Black Metal Arrangements findet. Man könnte es schon als Black Metal der Postmoderne bezeichnen, Extravaganz der Extraklasse. Das epische Meisterwerk erstreckt sich über neun ineinander übergreifende Akte von pfeilschnellem, harschen Black Metal, kalten und lebensfeindlichen Industriallandschaften, sphärische Passagen von kosmischer Erhabenheit. All das wird in vielen komplexen Strukturen miteinander verwoben, dutzende, hunderte einzelne Ebenen verbinden sich zu einer Klangwand, die den Hörer niederwalzt, mitreißt und emporhebt. Wie der Astronaut beim Außeneinsatz blickt man plötzlich auf das große Ganze, sieht, wie sich die Songs in all ihrer Brutalität und Schönheit entfalten. Da, wo an einem Ort wahre Wirbelstürme völlige Verwüstung verbreiten, erblüht an anderer Stelle neues, zerbrechliches Leben...
    Wir hören die Hymnen, die aus dem Hintergrundrauschen des Universums zu uns vordringen (wie etwa in "The Creation Equivalence Principle") und erblicken gleichzeitig universale Schönheit ("Transpherium").

    "Terminal World Perspective" ist wie ein Ozean ein ungestümes Monster, entfacht Orkane von Hyperblasts und ist im nächsten Moment so unschuldig wie ein Gebirgssee in den Alpen. Das Drumming stammt zwar aus dem Computer, passt sich aber wunderbar in den Gesamtsound des Albums ein: Einerseits kalt, steril, brachial - andererseits warm und harmonisch, je nachdem, in welchem "Zeitalter", in welcher Epoche der Geschichte wir uns gerade befinden. Auf ihrem Debüt vereinen die Holländer Avantgarde Black Metal mit zahlreichen Industrialelementen und symphonischen Synths, unzähligen Effekten und Samples, hinzu kommen Einflüsse aus Post-Rock, Dark Ambient und sogar ein bißchen Neoklassik.
    Man muss aufgeschlossen für diese komplexe Melange sein, aber wer sich ihr öffnet, dem wird auch sie sich öffnen - und dieses Erlebnis sollte man sich wahrlich nicht entgehen lassen! Für mich der erste Anwärter für das Album des Jahres im extremen Metal, verdiente neun Punkte für ein Meisterwerk, welches ein Ausmaß an Innovation, Kreativität und Kraft versprüht, von dem viele Bands träumen, und was die meisten nie erreichen.

    Punkte: 9/10
