For seasoned noise veterans, Sheer Hellish Miasma offers a bracing soundscape filled with exquisitely abrasive textures and more than enough hidden detail to warrant repeated listening – a distinct voice in the increasingly same-sounding world of abstract electronic noise. For everyone else, Drumm’s journey through the noisy underworld is likely to inspire fear or, in an optimistic case, fearful admiration.

If Sheer Hellish Miasma is equivalent to Drumm's dentist's chair, then these subtle textural changes are his mild anesthetic, providing just enough distraction to keep the focus off the mounting tension. It's a disarming trick, the effects of which are fully revealed when the album's 48 minutes of unrelenting caterwaul yield to its fourth and final cut, a gorgeous drone piece named "Cloudy," which seems triply sublime after so much sneakily accumulated momentum and aggression.

KD - Sheer Hellish Miasma. Some names scribbled down (and ultimately scratched out) included: Brain Scratch Avalanche, Tooth Filling Freebaser, and Demonic Wasabi Colonic. And yet the decided upon title conveyed the sensation succinctly, as the vagaries of the "Miasma" in the final title somehow qualified this intense listening experience. Back in the winter of 'ought-two, when I first heard this Kevin Drumm disc (he was still into Norwegian death metal in those days), a blizzard had just hit the city and snow was flurrying and thick on the ground.
