RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON - THE BESTIAL LIGHT
Dutch experimentalists RMFTM are ushering in their tenth year as a band
with their sixth full-length 'The Bestial Light', due for release May 8th via
Fuzz Club and marking yet another evolution in sound and line-up from
the shape-shifting Eindhoven-based collective. Across their extensive
back-catalogue and many collaborations (including with the likes of Gnod,
The Cosmic Dead and 10 000 Russos, as well as the occasional art piece),
the band have moved from expansive space-rock to avant-garde drone
and industrial techno. Now, however, is the time for something else.
Bolstered by the addition of a vocalist and second drummer, the
incendiary 'Bestial Light' LP sees the band move on from the electronic
experimentations of the Subversive album trilogy (culminating in their
most-recent LP, 2018's 'De Spelende Mens') and last year's 'Bliss' EP.
Their new direction, instead, finds them journeying into a dissonant
industrial punk sound that's Einstürzende Neubauten and early Swans by
way of Neurosis and Godflesh. Fusing heavy industrial rhythm sections,
biting post-punk vocals and crushing "acid metal" riffs, the new
incarnation of Radar Men From The Moon aka RMFTM is comprised of core
members Glenn Peeters (guitar), Tony Lathouwers (drums), Titus
Verkuijlen (bass) and Bram van Zuijlen (guitar/synth), with the addition
of Joep Schmitz (drums) and Harm Neidig (vocals / saxophone). Not long
after recruiting the new members, the now-expanded RMFTM headed
back into the studio with their long-term producer Bob de Wit (Gnod, A
Place to Bury Strangers, Mudhoney), laying down the new album in 14-
hour shifts over 12 days: "We were constantly 100% on it so the process
was quite intense but also very rewarding. You can definitely hear that on
the record." On the album's theme, borne out just as much in their
creative approach as it is as the lyrics and instrumentation, they say: "We
wanted to write about everything instinctual in mankind, individual
desires and true will. Transgression and the seductiveness of unreason."
Unsurprising, then, that 'The Bestial Light' is such a primitive, borderlinedepraved affair; one that constantly feels like it's hurtling towards an
edge that you're never quite sure you want to look over.
