    Un premier album c'est toujours une découverte. Une formation encore inconnue, un style à définir, des perspectives peut-être encourageantes de voir émerger un gros talent, la possibilité de voir se renouveler un genre. Control Human Delete est à ce titre une sacrée bonne découverte et son premier album Terminal World Perspective une franche réussite.

    Avec sa pochette composite, à mi chemin entre hangar industriel, espace rougeoyant et paysage naturel agité, CHD annonce la couleur. Cet album traite principalement de l'évolution terrestre, de la nature profondément destructrice de ses habitants, guidés par des forces divines qui les dépassent depuis la nuit des temps. On a à l'esprit des 6, beaucoup de 6, ceux du label code666 (Ephel Duath, Negura Bunget, Aborym...), mais aussi ceux du 666 International de DHG, à la pochette assez similaire par ailleurs. Musicalement, on se situe en effet dans la mouvance Black Metal la plus originale, avec des riffs incisifs, et beaucoup de virulence certes, mais aussi des passages dark ambient et des expérimentations soniques diverses. Terminal World Perspective en devient pur objet froid et imposant, avec une débauche d'agressivité phénoménale traversée de breaks abrupts, faits de claviers plasticiens , par exemple sur The Creation of Equivalence Principle, ou d'aplats ambient voire indus, comme sur Sin Tide Manufacturing.

    Véritable creuset de violence organique couplée à des amas synthétiques bien agencés, Terminal World Perspective dessine les lignes mouvantes d'un futur en pointillé, matière froide et sombre à malaxer en tous sens sans espoir de soulagement. Apocalyptique comme un cliché de science-fiction, cet album n'est est pas moins habité d'une aura ténébreuse où la machinerie électronique sert de canevas à des compositions sinueuses, pleines de circonvolutions rythmiques parfaitement maitrisées. Implacable comme un rouleau compresseur de furie contrôlée, Control Human Delete prend le temps de poser des ambiances spectrales notamment sur la bien nommée Spectrum Of Divine Nature pour mieux enfoncer les rouages hérissés de sa mécanique black au plus profond des chairs.

    Avec un chanteur impressionnant de volontarisme forcené, Void, les compositions prennent encore davantage d'ampleur. Moins foisonnant qu'un DHG ou bien encore un Solefald, CHD fait plutôt penser à des groupes tels que Thorns, par son souci de créer une musique froide et aliénante. Pourtant on respire aussi, le temps principalement de Transpherium, piste dark ambient héritant de Sephiroth, Raison d'Etre et autres joyaux du label suédois CMI. On y ressent la désolation comme après une guerre d'annihilation et l'isolement comme dans l'espace. Chaque piste de l'album est ainsi à elle seule un paysage glaçant dont les effets sont démultipliés par l'ensemble, vortex de confusion et de chaos s'achevant en Absolution, autre piste dark ambient annonçant le jugement libérateur d'une humanité en perdition.

    Avec Terminal World Perspective, Control Human Delete impose le respect dés son premier essai. Ce disque futuriste forme un ensemble impressionnant de maîtrise absolue. En 70 minutes éreintantes et passionnantes à la fois, avec un son terrifiant et rempli d'images dévastatrices, CHD créé la bande son black metal moderne idéale pour les temps à venir.

    Fraîchement débarqués chez Code 666, les bataves de Control Human Delete, ou CHD si vous préférez, s’apprêtent à terroriser nos pauvres conduits auditifs, qui n’en demandaient pas tant, à l’aide d’un « post black métal » aux réminiscences industrielles cataclysmiques. Tout un programme ! Et ce n’est pas un hasard si Code 666, qui héberge déjà les têtes brulées d’Aborym, leur a proposé un deal !
    Car les similitudes entre les deux formations sont légion !
    A commencer par cette approche sauvage, d’une brutalité inouïe, des parties typées black-métal. Celles-ci, froides et glaciales, accentuent le malaise initial, qui s’installe définitivement au fil des morceaux. Les parties dark-ambient sont également présentes, et comme chez son grand frère, celles-ci, notamment sur « Transpherium » et « Sin tide manufacturing » sont redoutablement pesantes. L’oppression qui en résulte devient quasi palpable.
    Enfin, le côté dominateur et totalitaire, même s’il est symbolisé par d’autres moyens, est aussi de la partie. Le discours eschatologique présent dans les deux entités est omniprésent…les frissons s’emparent de moi, le mal-être est réeel… la fin du monde est proche mes frères, fuyez tant qu’il en est encore temps !
    Mais je m’égare.
    CHD a tout, donc, pour séduire les fans d’Attila, le côté éléctro-pervers en moins, la déshumanisation lente et inéluctable en plus. Il faudra, pour les autres, faire preuve d’abnégation et de témérité pour s’enfiler les 70 minutes que dure ce « Terminal world perspective » sans sourciller. Petit aparté, à mon sens, la référence en la matière demeure l’album « In the streams of inferno » des norvégiens désaxés de Mysticum. L’angoisse, la peur, la terreur y sont érigés en préceptes de vie par trois junkies au bord de la rupture.
    Mais le premier album des hollandais de CHD pourrait y constituer une parfaite introduction.
    Bizarre, mais j’ai l’étrange impression que le cauchemar ne fait que commencer…

    6/10

    While Industrial Black Metal begs for innovation, CONTROL HUMAN DELETE does little to silence the cries. Catchy riffs and programmed drumming streamline the 2007 release “Terminal World Perspective,” but the band seldom strays from pathways already paved by giants FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY and MARDUK. In fact, everything on this release resembles little more than a hybrid of the two.

    The drums on “Terminal World Perspective” show Pulse and Spectre’s collective mastery of computer applications, but the songs do not convey any fluency or understanding of how an actual drummer might perform. The release showcases a series of self-produced extracts that hint at the artists learning the songs in conjunction with the technology, giving the release an unpolished feel despite the technical proficiency of Eon’s guitar work. A few layered keyboard effects add value through the discordant and muted undertones found on “Protocol Of Systematic Relief” and “Spectrum Of Divine Nature,” but the majority of the release fails to impress.

    Lyrically CONTROL HUMAN DELETE seem obsessed with man’s destructive nature. Void often sings from the perspective of an external observer, such as an alien obsessed with humanity’s religions and imperfections, but the production of “Terminal World Perspective” will prevent the impatient majority from striving to grasp the concept of the release.

    As with many Industrial releases “Terminal World Perspective” succeeds when dark and simple. Complex passages require the listener to distinguish the better elements from the crap, and the steady hum that accompanies and accentuates the computer-driven double bass work provides a huge audible deterrent to fans of Death and Black Metal drumming.

    To summarize, the efforts of CONTROL HUMAN DELETE pale in comparison to the well-planned and often over-structured songs of other Industrial Metal acts, but the band’s Black elements come close to saving a few tracks along the way. “Transpherium” and “Absolution” offer a few solid instrumental moments, “Terminal World Perspective” will not impress the masses awaiting the next phase of evolution in the realm of Industrial Black Metal.

    Breathtaking or annoying – in between these two extremes CONTROL HUMAN DELETE see-saw. The cover portrays an apocalyptic scenario and Terminal World Perspective comes across like a best fitting soundtrack. The songs are built up variably, endued with high class melodies, but the programmed drum machine kind of derogates joy in listening. The band uses the programming consciously of course to create a doomsday mood, but after a while this always-faster-and-faster effect wears off markedly.
    That’s why I breathe a sigh of relief having the chance to enjoy a slower part; nearly doom-like such contrasting elements in Protocol Systematic Belief or in highlight The Creation Equivalence Principle boost the intensity level. First mentioned song offers a nice guitar solo additionally and because of that I can speak of a felicitous start with clear conscience; similarly the industrial guitar elements do not disrupt the atmosphere. Some breathers are welcome, but I think that the relaxed monster track Transpherum gets way boring. In the end of the song Operation: Genesis Reprise a short classical sample fits in much better. The overlong compositions demand total concentration to follow the detailed and cumbersome structure. The sound is presented really modern and cold, thus it is a good chance to cool one’s head fighting the tropical temperatures these days. Unfortunately the concluding work Absolution clings annoying and irrelevantly and does not bring many brownie points on my personal popularity scale - consequently it is kind of salvation after 11 minutes of modern sounds.
    Terminal World Perspective absolutely depends on sentiments and it is not appropriate to be consumed along the way or to doze off. Do you have strong nerves? Do you need an adrenalin kick on a lazy day? Then you should put this CD into your car’s glove locker; or you could listen to this work while you exercise running – you could beat your records, including incidental sprints and breathers – unless the sports(wo)man did not fasten his/her legs because of permanent time changes…

    CHD er en forkortelse for Control Human Delete, som blev dannet i 2001 med det formål at udforske grænserne for, hvor spændende man kan skabe kold og mørk musik. Bandets første demo fra 2003 skabte en del opmærksomhed i hjemlandet Holland, men kastede ingen pladekontrakt af sig. Det er nu lykkedes med ”Terminal World Perspective”, som dermed er bandets debutalbum.

    Black Metal er en ekstrem genre, så i hvilken retning skal man gå, hvis man vil forny den? Man kan gå i to retninger: enten kan man nedtone det brutale og satse mere på det stemningsfyldte (som f.eks. Bergraven og Xasthur) eller også kan man satse mere på de brutale sider af musikken. Og det er netop den sidstnævnte løsning, CHD har valgt. Ved hjælp af synth-effekter og samples bliver musikken endnu mere rå end vanligt – det her er ikke for sarte sjæle! Bandet arbejder med en temmelig massiv bund i lydbilledet, så lytteren rammes af den berømte mur af lyd. Og det er virkelig en brutal een af slagsen: blastbeats, grind og fræsende guitarer veksler igennem numrene, så det er en fryd. Denne beskrivelse lyder ikke anderledes end for andre Black Metal skiver, men CHD har alligevel sin hel egen indgang til materialet. For ved at smide de førnævnte kunstige lyde på her og der, får musikken et industrial-skær, der giver den en meget skarp kant. Samtidig er numrene meget spændende og interessante at lytte til.
    Nu er numrene ret lange (7-10 minutter), så heldigvis afløses de voldsomme dele af mere rolige passager, så lytteren lige kan nå at få vejret. Set i den sammenhæng kan ”Transpherium” nærmest opfattes som en time-out; det er et 11 minuters instrumentalnummer med store og næsten meditativt svævende klangflader. Dette øger kontrasten ved overgangen til det næste nummer, ”Operation: Genesis Reprise”. Her drives stortrommerne op i groteske antal bpm via af rytmeboks; lidt á la The Senseless, bare ikke i så udstrakt grad, og derfor mere effektfuldt.

    “Terminal World Perspective” er en klar berigelse af Black Metal genren, og en fantastisk debut! Det eneste der afholder mig fra at bruge pointskalaen fuldt ud er, at der et par steder godt kunne være skåret ned på spilletiden. Alligevel er skiven meget imponerende, og klart en af årets mest spændende udgivelser til dato.

    Tracklist:
    1. Eclipse
    2. Protocol of Systematic Belief
    3. The Creation Equivalence Principle
    4. Spectrum of Divine Nature
    5. Transpherium
    6. Operation: Genesis Reprise
    7. Sin Tide Manufacturing
    8. Global Storm Element
    9. Absolution
    Samlet spilletid: 71:19


    Revolution Music vil gerne takke Aural Music for tilsending af dette album.

    We want all their money ;)

    In a few weeks we'll do our first gig for this album, we didn't play for 3 years or so... Hopefully we'll get some good response on that too.

    For the Italian-speaking part of this forum:
    http://www.blackmetalonline.com/vedi_recensione.php?rec_id=980

    Il Nostro Voto: 7.5

    Mysticum, Aborym (periodo "With No Human Intervention"), Diabolicum, TMK (periodo "New Era Viral Order", quando la band ancora si faceva chiamare con il moniker Thee Maldoror Kollective per intero); quattro nomi che in un modo o nell'altro hanno fatto cose importanti nel panorama del Black Metal industriale; quel Black Metal dove i suoni sintetici di drum machine asettiche e micidiali si mescolano alle sferzate demoniache di chitarre al vetriolo, miscelate a loro volta con sampler dark ambient / industrial ipnotici, ripetitivi, infernali... Dove non è la Macchina ad avere la meglio sull'Uomo, ma è l'Uomo-Macchina a prendere il sopravvento, a plasmare con la propria volontà la materia circostante, a creare un vuoto cosmico, un buco nero astrale che risucchia ogni pensiero ed ogni mente. Gli olandesi CHD (acronimo di Control Human Delete) seguono i passi solcati da queste bands (e da molte altri magari con meno fortuna e ingegnosità), arrivando al debutto con questo "Terminal Wordl Prospective" per la sempre attentissima Code666, che non manca occasione per scovare la band all'avanguardia del momento.

    CHD sono freddi Uomini-Macchina che con l'ausilio delle modernità messe a disposizione dall'era attuale creano un suono forte, distruttivo, ipnotico e dannato, andando a pescare dal Black Metal più ferale gli istinti primordiali e dal Death Metal le mazzate più pesanti; il tutto portato a confluire in un unico passaggio intrecciato con un synth, appoggiato di peso sui cardini di una drum machine fredda e scostante e sovrastato da uno scream furioso e furibondo, realmente malato come la musica che lo accompagna, glaciale ed etereo come i lunghi momenti dark ambient che solcano profondamente questo lavoro. Serve andare oltre? Il concetto che deve essere chiaro è uno solo: la follia della mente umana può andare oltre... E' sempre pericoloso mettere insieme diversi generi così claustrofobici e velenosi, ed il risultato è infatti quello che ci si aspetterebbe da un disco come questo: la distruzione dell'umanità intesa come tale, l'olocausto sonoro che accompagna l'armageddon, l'implosione dell'ultimo sole dell'universo; quando il buio e le tenebre avvolgeranno il Tutto la colonna sonora della fine dei tempi si potrebbe trovare tra le note di questo dischetto...

    Le tracce di devastazione Industriale si alternano con momenti più claustrofobici, tendenti in alcuni punti al dark ambient più freddo ed intimista, ermetico e trascendentale; ascoltare in merito la quinta traccia "Transpherium", oltre 11 minuti di disagio sonoro, può essere un'esperienza molto intensa; allo stesso tempo i 7 minuti ad esempio della ferale "Global Storm Element" sapranno dare una mazzata incredibile al povero ascoltatore di turno, spiazzandolo ed avvolgendolo tra le spire del metallo gelido e squadrato delle macchine e la bruciante fiamma degli sferzanti riffing Black Metal, scaraventandolo violentemente in bui cunicoli di umida materia inanimata. "Protocol of Systematic Belief" non fa certo complimenti in fatto di annientamento totale, così come anche la seguente "Creation Equivalence Principle", infarcita da momenti ipnotici, voci filtrate, note di pianoforte... Un calderone ribollente di caos primordiale misto a futuristici richiami di mondi alieni.

    Voglio concludere qui questo mio breve resoconto: intendiamoci, non siamo di fronte ad un capolavoro, ma la qualità della proposta di questa band è senza dubbio di grande spessore. Forse la durata complessiva è un po' troppo "pesante" visto che andiamo oltre l'ora e dieci minuti, con tre brani che superano ampiamente i dieci; ma se ascoltato con la giusta attenzione e soprattutto con la dovuta cautela saprà sicuramente essere un disco intrigante per molti di voi... Agli amanti delle bands citate in apertura ma non solo; agli amanti della fredda oscurità cosmica e a tutti gli amanti dell'estremo più "open-minded". Per gli altri inutile dire di starne molto alla larga!

    4.5 (nothing on this site goes beyond 5.0 so I expect that 4.5 is high.)

    Dette unge nederlandske bandet med det dumme navnet har arbeidet frem et ambisiøst konseptalbum som beveger seg mellom atmosfærisk ambient og frenetiske post-black metalpartier. En allerede velprøvet metode, men CHD har langt på vei lykkes med å gjøre en interessant inkarnasjon av denne ekstrem-varianten. Ambient-partiene virker gjennomtenkte, noe som er heldig ettersom de strekkes ut i minuttvis og ynder å fungere som tegnsetting for det konseptuelle kjatet som jeg overlater til andre å finne ut av. Metal-delen er overøsende, men kun skjelden slitsom eller kjedelig, takket være vellykket og variert komposisjon. Tonen er frempå og alvorlig, og det er skjelden rom for å puste når det stormer som værst, selv om det finnes riff av en mer heavy karakter der inne også. Vokalen ligger også godt på denne skiva, og som helhet er Terminal World Perspective ganske så lytteverdig.
