"Stop The Mind" is a brain-burner from front to back. My initial impressions (based on superficial details such as his moniker & the art for his releases so far) were that Torture Corpse was probably something to do with harsh noise, and I would only be able to endure Torture Corpse for short intervals before absolutely losing my mind. Neither of these has proved to be true. I don't know what kind of sound instruments this artist is putting to use, but the outcome in any case is chilling.
For much of "Stop The Mind", I feel like I am in a vast tundra in some unknown land, perhaps on another planet. The droning tones at the forefront shake and quiver throughout my entire stay, sometimes moving off into the distance, and sometimes residing just inches from my ear. These subdued feedback yelps sound as though they are strange aircrafts floating past. Intensely eerie vocal expressions occur every now and then. These are cloaked in some abrasive vocoder effects, mimicking a forced whisper. There is no melody to these pieces, at least not that I can perceive, but Torture Corpse does employ a kind of 'progression' at times, repeating the same tones, and applying different manipulations periodically, slowly morphing the nature of the sound. This is an intense and dark listening experience, but "Stop The Mind" also has that unique capacity to transport you to another world entirely, which is what gives it its appeal. Give in to the dark side—stop your mind! 9/10 -- Michael Jantz (7 April, 2010)
