Another monster of a release from Ulwhednar, the Stockholm based duo of Anthony Linell (Abdulla Rashim) & Jonas Runnberg (Varg), label owners of Northern Electronics. Razor Mesh Fencing is simultaneously gradual and relentless, a work of immense power characterised by its non-negotiable rhythms, sharp edged acid lines and intermittent drone like moments of relief. Attention to percussive and sonic detail is ever present across the double LP, which is again representative of Sweden’s dark and desolate northern climes as much as it could be centred on the moral and ethical decay in the behaviour and rule of the powerful whose actions towards the world’s most vulnerable oscillates between cold indifference and withering cruelty. A techno record of the highest calibre. Indie30.
