Ambient gabber parallels

Ambient gabber parallels

99,9% of gabber music is admittedly braindead and manufactured for chimps with 2-second attention spans (no hyperbole here). This song, among others by Atari Teenage Riot, uses bouncy hardcore techno aesthetics mixed with generic Slayer riffs inserted into a punkish frame of composition.

The effect is surprisingly good: there's lots of ambient layering going on in the background, which reminds me of Beherit's "Demon Advance" in terms of how they manage to uphold the fluidity of diverse components intertwining with each other. I wonder whether it's a coincidence that Marko Laiho made a career as a gabber DJ.

After all, it's not as ridiculous as one might think. Alec Empire, the guy behind ATR, collaborated with Justin Broadrick's Techno Animal, whose first release was a masterpiece of its kind. It's a pity that Empire didn't take a hint. ATR exploring depth of sound via Dischargesque ambience rather than mainstream "rebellious" themes could have proven interesting.

Pretty generic stuff. With speedcore/gabber especially, you need to have some pretty innovative melodies to stick out in the mess.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.
