A new release from Fallow Field, Haraam brings us a cassette with incredibly moody and Arabic-inspired experimental sound aesthetics. Fresh like an assassin's dream and from the driest desert you could imagine, Let The Swords Tear Me To Pieces gets back to atmospheric ambient-dub elements (Empire of Faith from 2014), and mixes it up with more recent industrial and tribalistic harshness (When The Sacred Months Have Passed from 2015). Side A of the tape follows in the more gentle tradition of tribal ambient techno, and side B is a heavy and punishing noise-drone treat.
Still holding the flag, and still delivering whatever Haraam wants, the project remains a MUST listen. For fans of Muslimgauze, Surgeon, Hybryds and Raison D´être. This is the 7th cassette-album release from this great Danish act, and the second tape release on U.S cassette label Fallow Field.
