With their sixth album for HANDS Greyhound manage to stay true to their purebred rhythmnnoise approach and yet take a surprisingly serene turn: The noise level is not only a set reality it is perceived on the inside instigated by 16 tracks that are stripped down to their essentials stubbornly repetitive and deadly efficient. Tapping deep into the consciousness of the genre this album is adequately described as sounding old school albeit in a contemporary crushing production. Tune in and recalibrate your inner noise level! After 15 years on the scene having shared the festival stages with all the big names of the rhythmnnoise circuit its fair enough to count Greyhound among them. Also its perfectly legitimate for Greyhound to stray from the trademark unmistakeable wallofnoise sound in its pure form and allow for some reminiscence: On Inner Noise Level you may well discover suggestions of the galvanizing looped sound and analogue grit of Esplendor Geometrico (Inner Noise Level Crash Pulse State Candle) or the exacerbated high frequencies of the early Rephlex Records style (Cold Floor). You may also indulge in gritty bass riffs (Pure Menace) klinikal electro sounds (Free) and pure moshpit agitation (Moving Machines Right Here). Although appearing decidedly more minimal than the noiseheavy predecessor Prototype Greyhounds new offering remains truly Greyhound so there is no dabbling with artsy breaks or melodies as such: Inner Noise Level is nearly 80 minutes of pure unadulterated driving and energetic rhythmnnoise with all the experience and passion to keep that sound alive!
