Alright, guess it is time to try and get a hold of the immensely weird, esoteric, avant-garde, mess that is Jute Gyte. Dissonant melodies, disharmonious rhythms and an overall discordant sound is probably the easiest and most straightforward way of trying to explain that which can not be described. Yet underneath all this hobbled mess of frequencies there is still a fun and playful sound that is truly unique for Jute Gyte. I have heard my fair share of various avant-garde, experimental, esoteric, and overall weird metal, but never have I come across something this dense and varied as the works of Jute Gyte; with a quite large and prolific discography that jumps from slow, discordant guitar lamentations, to weird experimental black metal, to just straight up harsh noise, you can never be sure what you’re going to get with him, except for something bizarre and unique.

The myth, the legend, the one and only, David Tibet.
One of the biggest cult artist to emerge from the project Psycic TV in the early 80’s in London. David Tibet is one productive and masterfull neo-folk artists, and has collaborated whith numerous musicians and artists over the æons. Among them; Boyd Rice, Death In June, John Balance, HÖH and Thomas Ligotti.
Dogs Blood Rising is one of the earliest works of David Tibet and one of the darkest, industrial, and experimental albums he has made. It features Steven Stapleton on mixing.
The album starts with a coir chanting Christus over and over to set the mood and fades into the next track Falling Back in Fields of Rape. This is a excellent track featuring many different vocals and a quite uncofortable topic… It is a 14-minute epic with distorted background sounds and guitars, and a very iundustrialized sounding drum, pounding. It all leads up to a crescendo with a quite uncomfortable screeaching sound and ends quite abruptly, which can be quite anoying, only to start over with a soft choir and a female singer backed by the drum. It all ends with David Tibet chanting and a return of the screeaching sound.
The album is very ambient sounding with no real distinguisable instruments and formula, but the tracks flow together and still feels like a comprehensive journey. The lyrics is filled with religious and esoteric themes, as is usual wtih David Tibet.
If you never heard Current 93 before and are into industrial/ambient/experimental music, this is a good album to start with and a great album too! And if you already know about Current 93, why don’t you already own it?
