NOR018: Forceps – heaven is a place on hell

‘heaven is a place on hell’ is the mind-melting debut of Spanish ensemble Forceps. Saxophone monster Polychronidis (of Skullfuck fame) mangles his saxophone and will not stop playing until you cry and Jaula’s abstract noise guitar will make you get to that point quickly. ‘heaven is a place on hell’ is an arousing affair that is both noisy and tender. Spain is truly the place these days!

The album is a collage made with recordings of circuit bent effects pedals and can be seen as the equivalent of a huge abstract yet detailed paiting, made with with a very tiny brush. A truly mesmerizing record.
