New York's solo project Gridfailure has returned with a new recording which shows the music going for a mixture of experimental, industrial, noise, power electronics and horror music and this is a review of his self released 2022 album "Ghoul Busccraft: Henchpersons Instrumentals II".
Power electronics and industrial sound start off the album while synths and keyboards can also be heard in some parts of the recording. Elements of horror soundtrack music are also added on all of the songs along with the recording also mixing in a great amount of avant garde touches and all of the tracks are instrumentals.
At times the music gets very experimental sounding while some songs also add in a small amount of electric guitar sounds. Clean playing can also be heard briefly along with the tracks also adding in a great amount of programmed beats and percussion which also gives the album more of a ritualistic feeling.
Horror movie samples can also be heard briefly along with some of the songs also being very long and epic in length. One track also introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording as well as harsh noises also making their presence known in certain sections of the album, when guitar and bass riffing is utilized it also adds influences of metal into the music. Saxophones and didgeridoo's can also be heard briefly and the production also sounds very dark.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Gridfailure and if you are a fan of experimental, industrial, noise, power electronics and horror music, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bill Skins Fifth" " I Hate Heads" "Socialpath Don't Quit" and "Ghould Bushcraft". 8 out of 10.
