MY CASTLE OF QUIET is one of my favorite radio shows and one of the things that drags me to the internet again and again. Wm. has aired the Blood Rhythms LP once before, and he's now aired it a second time, this time with an excerpt from Side B. Also played/highlights were Night Terrors, Night Bitch, Nightstick, Ash Pool, Peste Noire, DDAA, and Circuit Des Yeux.

The hardworking team of Post-Industrial torch-bearers over at Heathen Harvest kindly produced a fond review of the recent Blood Rhythms LP "Assembly". The full review can be found HERE.
I’ve purchased noise tapes that have been nailed to planks of wood, unlabeled floppy disks, painted mini-disks, and CDs whose cases are covered in some sort of plastic goo. Even among these nihilistic competitors of packaging, Blood Rhythms’ stands out for its intensive craftsmanship (in the most appropriately filthy way) and calls back to earlier days of underground experimental music.
The record’s multi-directional recording foundation demands a beautiful sound-system in order to take in the full experience of the industrial decay that Arvo Zylo has pressed to vinyl. However, I suppose playing the record over the PA of an abandoned warehouse would work just as well. The rusted conveyor belts and creaking meat lockers of Chicago still lord over American noise music.
