“- Die monster, you don’t belong in this world!
– It was not by my hand that I am once again given flesh. I was called here by HUMANS, wishing to pay ME tribute!
– Tribute?! You steal men’s souls, and make them your slaves!
– Perhaps the same could be said of all religions…
– Your words are as empty as your soul. Mankind ill needs a saviour such as you!
– What is a man!!? A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk, have at you!!!”

Ahh, what better to dispel the winter cold from the bone marrow, than some harsh, rhythmic noise from our all favorite destroyer of sounds, Prurient.
While Dominick Fernow might not be the most unique and/or extreme noise artist out there, he still holds a special place in my heart, for with his iconic style introducing me to the unrelenting world of noise!
A 12″ split from the two noise artists Kites and Prurient, whom are both quite prolific and good artists. The album is one of the first noise albums I heard, besides Merzbow and Jessica Rylan. Both artist on the split are quite known in the noise world and have a different sound to their msuic.
Prurient’s side on the split consists of one short, quite calm, instrumental song and a harsher song with screetching sounds and some wierd drums and cymbals accompanied with Dominic Ferrnow’s screams(with lyrics!).
Kites’ side is a bit more melodic than the A side, and utilizes more samples and have a more refined sound to it,I you can say that… It is still great and great example that noise doesn’t always have to be a wall of feedback and painful screeches.
The overall feel in this album is great an the both sides compliments each other and is a great listen!
Kites – The Hidden Family
A1: The Hidden Family
A2: Screw Style
A3: All the Jesus Shit
A4: Tears of the Youth
A5: Footsteps on the Path, Animals in the Trees
Prurient – +White+
B1: I Lay Down On The Ground In The Woods And Fell Asleep (Instrumental)
B2: Spanish Moss
Another excellent album from the noise master Prurient!
Harsh noise at it’s finest, feedback, white noise and unwanted people repellent.
If you are going on a long car trip, take this with you and you’ll never fall asleep in front of the wheels!

6. The Zealot
This is one of my favourite noise albums to grace the face of the music world!
Prurient is a noise musician who lives in New York and runs the label Hospital Productions and has been releasing music since 1998. Cocaine Death is a compilation CD which includes some of Prurient’s songs from out of production cassettes.
The songs on the album are lo-fi, aggresive, crunchy, with broken melodies and full of distorted screams. All of this blended together masterfully to become arguably the most harsh, yet listenable noise record out there. Hi-lights: Garden of Tranquility, Dog of Addiction and Historically, Women Use Poison to Kill.
A must for anyone who wants to hear the punk of this generation!
