5.0 out of 5 stars Supersilence is golden 18 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
Rather than go into the studio and improvise for a couple of days as they had done previously, producer and band member Helge Sten (aka Deathprod) ploughed through over 30 hours of live tapes to glean the best bits and then subject them to his Audio Virus treatments in order to shape the music into a coherent whole. He selected and crafted 5 tracks (from 8 and a half to just under 20 minutes in length) from recordings made in Bologna, London and Oslo.
To say that Supersilent are intense is a bit like suggesting that Bill Gates has some spare cash and when they get going they make Motorhead sound like a Boy Band. The problem is that for a lot of the time they only seem to have 2 ways of playing - full throttle and overdrive; and having been at one of the gigs where this was recorded I can say that their live work benefits a great deal from editing. Like many improvisers, they just don't know when to stop.
Whatever cutting and pasting was done in the studio the finished article is definitely their best effort yet and possibly a masterpiece of modern improvised music. The record company blurb suggests that this album showcases Supersilent's quieter side. While this is true don't let that give you the impression that anything on offer here is going to end up on any Ambient Chill Out CDs. Even in their quietest moments these guys still manage to sound 'twitchy', as if the whole thing could break down at any minute and they could go ballistic.
The material is consistently excellent, but just edging it as my favourite track is 5.3. Pattering rolls on the rims of the drums and Jazzy chords, thick with semi-tones, give way to an insistent Pyscho-esque drone.

You'll most likely find supersilent performing at new jazz festivals but dont let that fool you - there'll be as many confrontational noise and metal elements as jazz moments.That said, this record,composed of tracks recorded at concerts, is a more laid back and delicate work than their usual output.Melancholy horn melodies figure and ethereal noises float in and out,
