Nepal’s Gurkha Commando Blast Team return with their sophomore LP, Chatta. Utterly unbound and obliterating all boundaries, the collective takes cues from their recent sonic experiments collaborating with extreme artists from across the globe (Sao Paulo’s Test, Japan’s Retortion Terror, et al), culminating in their most realized sound to date.
Trademark hyper-ballistic dual battery blasting fuels frantic angular riffing at extreme velocities and fuses feverish frequencies in a swirling chaotic amalgam of free improvisation and cacophonous tribal noise. Guests appearances from Takafumi Matsubara, Colin Marston and the ‘Himalayan Halen’ delivers trademark virtuosic string shredding but the sonic shock of improvised saxophone and free noise acoustic soundscapes shatters barriers, taking the sound to new unexpected heights.
And that’s just Side 1. The B Side introduces a variety of eclectic artists from the far reaches of the extreme underground (Deaf Kids, Test & more) to dissect, mangle and remix select tracks from the studio session, engendering a relentless headfuck in a gnarled web of gabber, electro, and dub hybrids. Produced by Colin Marston (Dysrhythmia, Gorguts, Encenathrakh, Arctopus).
