Kadaver: Dissected
Kadaver - Dissected - [T'an! Kaven!! Ash!!!]


In order to prepare yourself for listening to Kadaver, you must A) not wanna listen to any other type of music but noise, B) be going through some tough times, and getting ready to end a really bad day by sleeping alone, with last week's clothes, and finally, C) promise not to take the note beside the sharp razor-blade that's attached to "Dissected" seriously.

Opener "Crystal Surgery" actually sounds like its name suggests- has all sorts of clackerings of crystals above the obvious haunting squeals & howls, and connects easily to the crispier and overloaded "Annihilation of angels". As I said about Kadaver's previous release, this is no easy-listening noise and it really is more of a conceptual DIY piece in all of its aspects: from meaningful minimalist design, to suitable track and album titles and back to the chosen name of Kadaver (meaning a carcass of some sort) as an alias of Michael Zolotov.
The hissing subsides and "Raped in the ditch" (a title more suitable to a gore-grind track, don't ya think?) whirls in with ominous gusts of wind and pretty much stays on those low-frequency ranges, with occasional whispering and distant screams from an innocent girl being raped by some terrifying guy with a scalpel.

While not as intense as "Infected with feeling", this release still has its harsh moments. The aforementioned "Annihilation of angels" and "Pissing Blood" are two good examples of how a collection of rather simple effects create a complex emotional experience for the listeners. And it is safe to say that "Dissected" is more varied in general and thus more listenable (to an extent, of course).

"Dissected" is the kind of album that would make you paranoid, looking for hidden massages in its tracks and in random white noise radio frequencies. Meant to be consumed carefully, and it would be your call whether to do it before the meals (and thus skipping those meals) or after the meals (and thus re-tasting what you just had).
Bon Appétit!
