In abstract musical terms, I think of this belgium man as a Barbarian warlord with a laptop and few distortion pedals. Now, not just a simple barbarian, but among the leading ranks. The man has to be clever and somewhat capable of executing strategy, even if it’s only to steer the ravenous hoard in the next direction. He knows what to do with what he has at his disposal, and he does it well. What he has is a mass of static noise and a disposition that makes that code like icy songs (tracks). The work he puts into his ample pallet of sound is enticingly different, and yet he reminds the listener who’s in charge, just who drew up the scene with sound with his own storm flare. Do think fire here. The way this man roars his instruments (pedals and such) together is very special, raw, rude, primitive but at times when the song needs to be truly sung, even somewhat spiritual and calm, reflexive. In fact I think this is the big difference between classic harsh noise and HNW or ANW. These 2 last sub-genres induced to enter in a some kind of "trance", not hurtful, stressful or exciting, but the opposite. This man is one to keep an eye on without a doubt, there is nothing stale about anything he does.
