Zlurad — Vo Blago Zlu
(Addicted Label BNiL 731, 2019, CD / DL)

Злурад, or in English Zlurad, is a Russian noise band. And I am astounded that there is even an audience for this music, and I use the term very loosely. Amazingly this CD is already sold out on Bandcamp, even though it was releaesed in 2019. With its eight tracks, the album clocks in at only 31 minutes, which is a blessing. This is all improvised garage band noise and dreck that is barely listenable, even at a low volume. For the life of me, I cannot fathom how five people can sustain the random banging, screaming, throat ripping, Cookie Monster on steroids shouting for more than a couple of minutes. This is wild crazed self-indulgent feculent detritus that was explored decades ago by the cassette culture. This album is perfect for ridding your house of rats or any other unwelcome guests. Play it at a high volume and your neighbors might call the police as they could think that someone was being murdered. I just can’t think of enough nice things to say about this album. Avoid it at all costs, unless you enjoy visceral screaming, banging, and just a hint of a guitar and bass.
