I should have known of Bertrand Barbie aka Sobria Ebrietas, but I did not. But with Barbie’s latest release Hatemosphere (Earsheltering), I’m glad I finally discovered him. This time Barbie has taken on the persona of Eurovision über Alles. Hatemosephere is a noise album is more than a noise album. Barbie shows great control over the noises he uses to construct tracks with fullness and amicableness. But don’t let me kid you, this is not a noise album you could play for the uninitiated; it’s harsh, but controlled. And now that I’ve discovered Barbie’s work it’s on to some of his earlier work and a real good re-listen to The Soundtrack (Eg0cide) which came out in June.
