With their sixth album for HANDS, Greyhound manage to stay true to their purebred rhythm’n’noise approach, and yet take a surprisingly serene turn: The noise level is not only a set reality, it is perceived on the inside, instigated by 16 tracks that are stripped down to their essentials, stubbornly repetitive, and deadly efficient. Tapping deep into the consciousness of the genre, this album is adequately described as sounding old school, albeit in a contemporary, crushing production. Tune in and recalibrate your inner noise level!

After 15 years on the scene, having shared the festival stages with all the big names of the rhythm’n’noise circuit, it’s fair enough to count Greyhound among them. Also it’s perfectly legitimate for Greyhound to stray from the trademark, unmistakeable wall-of-noise sound in its pure form and allow for some reminiscence: On “Inner Noise Level”, you may well discover suggestions of the galvanizing looped sound and analogue grit of Esplendor Geométrico (Inner Noise Level, Crash, Pulse State, Candle) or the exacerbated high frequencies of the early Rephlex Records style (Cold Floor). You may also indulge in gritty bass riffs (Pure Menace), klinik-al electro sounds (Free), and pure moshpit agitation (Moving Machines, Right Here). Although appearing decidedly more minimal than the noise-heavy predecessor “Prototype”, Greyhound’s new offering remains truly Greyhound, so there is no dabbling with artsy breaks or melodies as such: “Inner Noise Level” is nearly 80 minutes of pure, unadulterated, driving and energetic rhythm’n’noise, with all the experience and passion!
