NAMANAX
























"Cascading waves of electronic turbulence"
Year:    1996
Country:    US
City:    Millersville, PA
Label:    Relapse Records
Format:    CD
Tracks:    2
Time:    60 min.
Genre:    electronic
Style:              Industrial             Noise
















The full-length follow-up, "Cascading Waves of Electronic Turbulence", was released in 1996. Like the earlier EP, this was Mr. Yurkiewicz working live and alone, squeezing out a couple of long industrial-noise style jams. The nuclear power plant cover and the colourful insert of a pleasant autumn Pennsylvania scene help to evoke a sort of psychedelia unusual in the noise scene at the time, and sound-wise, it's a pretty crushing release.   Namanax took a quantum leap forward with their next recording sessions - 1997's Audiotronic and 1998's Monstrous - possibly because Yurkiewicz chose to work with James Plotkin (guitar wizard, and one of my all-time faves) and Kipp Johnson (who later formed Solarus, also with Yurkiewicz & Plotkin, though it sounds nothing whatsoever like Namanax).(*NOTE: this review is an extract from HERE ).  Essential
