Intensive Care - Pay Pig tape

Intensive Care is the duo of Canadian musicians Andrew Nolan and Ryan Bloomer, both of whom played in the heavy powerviolence legends The Endless Blockade (Nolan also played in the equally divine Column Of Heaven). Don't expect fast blastbeats here though, this is insanely heavy, sludgy doomy and rhythmic hardcore punk influencd by old industrial, with a totally evil feeling, somewhere between Godflesh and Celtic Frost. Hell, even the sometimes distorted vocals sound like Justin Broadrick's. Also, they continue the Column Of Heaven's tradition of power electronics/noise tracks. I also like the thematic focus evident from the titles, which is probably on the reification of art and its transformation into another capitalist commodity. 2016 tape on Survivalist.
