A collaboration between Magnetize and The Last Sound, Whirling Hall Of Knives’ harsh smoldering circuits and eruptions of panicky white noise have a profoundly unsettling quality, a sense of gnawing paranoia but interspersed with moments of almost euphoric epiphany, as if in the grip of an unshakeable 4am psychosis a growing sense that the door will be kicked in at any second and the world outside will come pouring in. Psyche electronics of a particularly greasy and grime-flecked hue.

Any band that names themselves after a Butthole Surfers tune is better be as freaky as Buttholes themselves and Irish duo Whirling Hall of Knives certainly does not disappoint (exhibit A – video for HOVVL).
