God save the Noise! Noise save the God!


Royal Hungarian Noisemakers emanate from Budapest, Hungary. I was fortunate enough to share the stage with this live act, but also to experience their live performances a couple of times. Whoever experienced their live performance, left with the impression there’s a lot more going on, mainly because of the presence of both analog and digital approaches, equally presented to the audience. It’s nearly impossible to miss their live performances since Royal Hungarian Noisemakers are constantly touring throughout Europe.

Le Roi Est Mort is their latest offering to the admirers of avant-garde experimentations, and this material offers seven compositions recorded on their live shows. This time, Royal Hungarian Noisemakers levitate somewhere in between detailed noise explorations and delicate minimalist approaches, showcased at particular tracks. Perhaps the sound leans towards the industrial ambiances because of the well-defined atmospherics and subtle beats involved at some moments. However, Royal Hungarian Noisemakers, as usual, offer even further examinations by including every possible option during their live sets.

Usage of various acid accentuations, lo-fi glitches, distorted soundscapes, monologues, dialogues, and other implementations entirely highlights the classic approach of these noise musicians. Another characteristic of Royal Hungarian Noisemakers is their sense to equally polarize classic shool of noise, harsh noise, ambient, minimal electronica, drone, and other approaches to accentuate used soundscapes. Therefore, you’ll encounter calmy ambiances transcending into more energized sound manipulations that, all of a sudden, become raging harsh noise tunes. Royal Hungarian Noisemakers understand their sound and go with the flow according to the current mood.

Le Roi Est Mort comes as a compact disc housed in a minimalistic cardboard cover. They are hand-numbered to 25 copies, so act fast if you’re solely into these obscure experimentations, saturated with a bit of notable dark atmosphere. Head over to the Unsigned Records Bandcamp page for more detailed information and ordering.


Vital Weekly

This group are no stranger to these pages. The Hungarian Noise Makers are mainly Vlad and Rovar17 along with a bunch of partners creating some noise-based electronic music that is not out there to shock through excessive volume, but with dense massive sample based on a bunch of computers. At least, that's what I think and that is based upon what I hear. Sounds are stretched out and get a crude digital treatment and it all becomes dirty and ugly. In 'Der Hund' they reach towards true noise with a bunch of distortion on the sounds and the addition of a vocal howl or two; it is a live piece so maybe there is some explanation in there? Sometimes there is a bit of rhythm, in 'Pnygyhouse' and 'Die Katze', but these are embedded in that cold clinical distant noise approach they. This is a soundtrack for the unsettling, a nerve-racking nightmare. I am not sure if I think there is progress to report or if they carve out their sound any further. For now, I think it's the latter and this is a solid strong noise release without lazy repetition. (FdW)
