Bizarre Uproar has undertaken many a rather remarkable journey over these last years. Having gained notoriety, respect and disgust for the authentic BDSM and fetish aesthetics, the crude and sadistic sounds and a variety of intense live actions, Pasi Markkula has never feared to reinvent techniques and follow paths which could be hard to digest to say at least. More recent outputs such as “Vihameditaatio” or “Dekadenz” could probably be described best as static sickness, which draws its power from skilled interactions between monotonous bleakness and harshest brutalism. The newest beast is titled “Sikiöasento” and is presented on both double CD and double LP format.

The first CD features one track that goes on for a duration of 51 monolithic minutes. Those who appreciate the new vein of BU should instantly feel at home. Dark, bassy crunches looped into hypnotic frenzies and an ever-deepening cesspool of filth. A buildup of agony until the metaljunk sounds set in – and these strike as hard as they possibly could! The hammering blows flow into each other perfectly but still coexist in singular harsh brutality. Throughout the next ten minutes, layers seem to thicken progressively and the sounds become more and more pounding along the way.
