The first half of SILVER PEARL's self titled cassette features the some of the most genuinely dark sound I've ever heard. Morose electronics drone hopelessly amidst a sea of distortion and subtle industrial cacophony, like a church organist rising from the grave but not quite able to shake off all the dirt. The second half features painstakingly slow moving drones with jarring bursts of manipulated metallic noise, like the soundtrack to a film you desperately want to stop watching....but you cannot tear yourself away. The primitive synths that close out the track indicate a relatively happy ending, if that makes you feel any better.
