Wolf Eyes – Burned Mind

Anyone familiar with the queasy physical noise aesthetic developed over 20 years ago by Throbbing Gristle and Whitehouse will be intrigued and amused by Burned Mind, the first widely available album by hip Ann Arbor, Michigan sound vandals Wolf Eyes. This sinister cacophony, generated by Nate Young, Aaron Dilloway and John Olson and split into parts entitled “Stabbed In The Face”, “Black Vomit” and “Urine Burn”, revels in its own thudding nastiness but brings few new ideas to the table. A formidable racket, undoubtedly, but next time Wolf Eyes should look to cure their myopia.
