In The Shade of Fire
(Hanson - HN206) CD $12.00 (Out-of-stock)
Originally released on LP by Silent Records in 1986, minus two tracks (for length), In The Shade of Fire can now be heard how it was originally intended for the first time. The harsh sound works of The Haters bring to mind the idea of process: ideologies behind something being destroyed or manipulated; the amplified and sometimes distorted sounds of the processes representing a document of acts carried out upon the objects, machines, or otherwise. The Haters intend listeners to experience the process of the audio lines as they were primarily constructed in the recording area. In the Shade of Fire, remastered by Warn Defever from the original master reels, reflects their strong textural aesthetic through object manipulation and recording that defines GX Jupitter-Larsen's place in the world of harsh noise. “Glsam” and “Diti” are explosive, introductory and side-concluding / framing pieces that highlight and pronounce the breaking and crashing down of material, all gelled with bass-driven strikes whose trails deteriorate into hints of cascading dirty and dark Americanoise distortion. “Bebas” powers through a heavier dynamic with conscious falling apart of source material, but in abstracted waves that suggest rebuilding just to simply crash fall apart again in futility. “Thuch” enhances the textural elements of the explosions and crashes as the sharpness of the strikes are slightly rounded at the edges and expose a quasi-gurgle that moves and slaps with vicious perplexity. “Taisic,” a study of hiss manipulation, is accented with minimalist scraping. “Cassas” is the album's meditation on sharp, shot-driven violence, articulated and layered for optimum cutting and breaking, bringing forth sound dynamism from very physical deterioration. “Fire 5,” a highly textural wall of sound that, to the contemporary fan of gritty and dirty crunch waves, is a primary early example of crackle lines that focus on the inner dynamism of sound itself.
