HeatdeatH and Ben Butler & Mousepad supported Deerhoof. I wish I could have caught Ben and the legendary Deerhoof but after HeatdeatH I had to break down and head to The Kitty Cat Klub for Perish. Many thanks to Broder and The Triple Rock.
HeatdeatH? "It is getting worse. Day by day. The coming century, will be one of ecological disaster and resource wars; technological improvements that will be promptly turned into instruments of destruction. Humans are horribly destructive creatures. The urge to save humanity is a false front for the urge to rule. The future is so oppressively grim, violent, foreign and insipid, that even a romance with nihilism seems way too quaint and inappropriate of a response. With HeatdeatH, Andrew Broder and Tim Glenn are flirting with the dire circumstances of the human condition in the abstract. The two tracks on this black slab of vinyl are thematically linked in sound, structure and mood. The music evokes a place unpleasant and unbearable. ' One of the things that really appealed to me about a lot of the real intense insane suicidal black metal is that sense of staring this kind of dark, cruel reality, whatever you're dealing with, in the face and accepting it, and having it be a thing of beauty rather than avoiding difficult subject matter. The term "heavy music" stems from my way of categorizing music like that as separate from music that can be casual and come and go and not make an impact on your life.' Andrew Boder HeatdeatH is a duo from Minnesota that conjures up sound with guitars, drums and machines. Musically informed by Black Metal, Free Jazz, Electronic Composition, four track recording and pretty shit, their sound constantly unfolds and overlaps, searching melodically with great sadness and beauty, while overwhelmingly abrasive and terrifying all at once. HeatdeatH is the Void, Infinite Cosmic Despair, and the end of consciousness." - conspiracyrecords.com
