avant-garde power-electronics and noise. Nevertheless,
although there is an emphasis on crazed improvisational
distortion, analog mutations, and industrial atmospherics
which furtively border into dark ambient territory, there
are many emotive elements of the album which transcend
the usual 'faceless' noise performances or blatantly
offensive 'scare tactic freak shows' of PE acts which
focus more upon the ideological message presented rather
than the actual noise or electronics themselves.
This is the main focus of Nihil Obstat: auditory
experimentation, creating an easily identifiable aesthetic
while at the same time evolving into unexpected directions.
