Quttinirpaaq – No Visitors (2013) review

Quttinirpaaq “No Visitors” (Rural Isolation
Project, 2013)
Austin’s aural equivalent of The Texas
Chainsaw Massacre return from a four year absence with another mesmerizing
collection of pants-shitting freakouts that stalk around the room like Skinny
Puppy on a bad acid trip. Industrial noise, wrist-slashing shrieks, razor-blade
guitars, ominous cinematic mayhem – and that’s just the first ten minutes.
               A
demented, guitar-shredding deconstruction of George Brigman’s ‘DMD’ will
rearrange your brain cells and the jungle boogie stomp of ‘Bad Ronald’ will
frighten those noisy neighbours for blocks around. Disembodied vocals,
boffo-distorto guitar antics (these guys don’t stop at 11 – the amps are
piledriven up to 20!) and a who-gives-a-shit attitude towards harmonics and VU
red lines ensures the sludge is cranked up beyond tolerable human pain
thresholds – Iggy would be proud!
               The
closing 3-song, 20-minute musical autopsy (‘Lohlands’, ‘Golden Needles’,
‘Horsehead Bookends’) is just about the most visceral listening experience
you’ll encounter all year – guaranteed to extract bodily fluids in large
quantities. Shit, these guy make Nine Inch Nails sound like a wedding band. Not
recommended for anyone with a pacemaker or prone to nightmares.
