Nape - Molasses
After years of playing in numerous punk bands, Severin Black steps out from behind the drum kit and voyages into anxiety-induced electronic rhythms under the moniker Nape.
Peddling a fine line between brutal techno and crushing industrial, not unlike a slowed down Container, or a vocal-less Beau Wanzer, ’Molasses’ is a brooding, hulking beast that has the drums at the heart of this debut release. Each track builds around distorted thudding kicks, broken hi-hats and cavernous claps before sculpted bass and alien soundscapes swirl in the peripheries, being caught on tape pushed in the red.
