Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Warthur
4 stars Originally released as a very limited-edition album indeed, In Menstrual Night follows the "two sidelong tracks of industrial-ambient spookiness" format of Nature Unveiled. Steven Stapledon of Nurse With Wound had been working closely with David Tibet on Current 93 from the start, but this album is effectively a full collaboration in all but name, fusing together two different concepts.

Tibet had the idea of exploring the question of where dreams go where they die; Stapledon was inspired by the idea of voices and sounds heard in a hospital after dark. The distinction between these ideas is evident in the different styles of the tracks; Sucking Up Souls consists largely of a mass of vocal samples looped so as to use the voices themselves to make the texture of the soundscape, whilst To Feed the Moon has its samples chugging away at the edge of perception underneath a hypnotic, thunderous percussion - it isn't quite "Current 93/Nurse With Wound go Krautrock", but it edges in that direction. An interesting and worthwhile experiment.
