Can't really find a substantial dose of information about this unenunciable duo, unless you count identifying them as “Wolf Anus” and “Thalido” substantial, though this half-hour scorcher appears to have been birthed out of the Italian underground. Side A begins with a manic synth line that almost sounds like an early nineties minimal techno track. This curious composition preludes a more sinister second passage that employs an industrial, darkwave-esque beat crossed with a demonic synthesizer melody and a bunch of grungy chaos thrown in for good measure. It's pretty gnarly stuff, though the real fun comes in the latter stages of the side, when Thetlvmth disposes of traditional music conventions in favour of atmospheric noise of the bass-heavy and slightly harsh variety. I detect shades of MSBR here, but that might just be due to me listening to a lot of Tano's work recently.
The second side is one fifteen minute composition, here again beginning with a bizarre, choppy, minimal bleepy bit before eventually turning into more heavy, droning noise of the pulsing variety. It's deliciously mechanical and would not sound out of place on a bill with Merzbow, NON, and Nurse With Wound. By track's close, it's a drilling bit of cold, rhythmic power noise. “Nöel” isn't particularly original, but it's impressively impassioned and soaked in menacing goodness with a strong ritualistic quality to boot. Play loud, or don't play at all. 6/10 -- Michael Tau (14 January, 2010)
