Jason Hodges has been in fine form lately, developing his noise project Brown Piss and returning with the best Suppression material in well over a decade. Suppression has gone through a half dozen phases over their twenty-odd years of existence, from straight hardcore to powerviolence to Lightning Bolt-imitation noise rock to noise collaborations (their releases with Facialmess and Crank Sturgeon are essential) to grindcore, but Rats In The Control Room marks their debut into the realm of noisecore. What follows is 29 noisecore blasts and a noise closer in approximately six minutes. The key influences here are Sore Throat and 7 Minutes of Nausea, and Suppression executes that sound well. The label sights gorenoise as an influence, although I don’t really hear that on Rats In The Control Room. For gorenoise, look to Brown Piss’ Transection of Bowel. Both releases are currently out on Chaotic Noise Productions. Essential material, up there with their Grief and Cripple Bastards splits.
