Whitehouse's William Bennett returns with his "afro-noise" project Cut Hands on this vinyl-only release on Blackest Ever Black heralding the arrival of a new full length later this year. Those unfamiliar with the music should make their way to "Black Mamba" post-haste, a confrontational fury of overdriven African drumming with the ferocity of Regis's early techno and Shackleton's polyrhythmic delicacy and dread. On the flip, "Krokodilo Theme" offers a less rhythmically oppressive but no less dark descent into Bennett's mind, a piece of ambient digital drift with Eastern undertones which conjures up images of the bloody aftermath to its counterpart's frenzied attack.
