sample the album:
"In the liner notes, written by Vomir, we discover some of the working methods of Regler. Vomir quotes from an e-mail from Mattin, one half of Regler: 'I have a project with Anders from Brainbombs, in which we set up rules and try to do different genres of music with rock instruments. We have done a recording regel #4 (harsh noise wall)'.
Regel one to three have also been reviewed in these pages (see Vital Weekly 957 and 966), a double CD for number three and a LP for the other two. In these previous works they explored 'dbeat', 'dub' and free jazz. Now it's time to dabble with harsh noise wall. I know I should leave such events with Jliat, he's our expert in this musical field but as I enjoyed the previous Regler releases quite a lot, I thought I have a go here. Now, to say I am the biggest fan of the genre is not really the case, but what Mattin and Anders Bryngelsson are doing here is actually very nice. They play guitar and drums and for very close to half an hour they bang expertly on these instruments, in a very loud fashion and with lots of rhythm.
Is this harsh noise wall? I think it very much is. There is, within these thirty minutes, hardly variation and it stays very much on the same level volume and dynamics wise. But instead of a wall of electronics, Regler uses the rock instruments to create that, and in that sense it's more likely to be Harsh Noise Rock, Harsh Rock Wall and some would call this metal no doubt, in whatever variation I am not prone to know. I think this is an excellent, very tiring half hour of some exciting rock music; vicious, dirty, loud and highly monochrome."-Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
