Black Elk creates with the desire to destroy. The brunt of this force can be found swirling in feedback, pounding on your chest, and stabbing at your ears with visceral screams. While there may be moments of intricate beauty or intense horror, they are often preludes to a cacophony of tempo changes and complex instrumental arrangements. Filthy, misanthropic and utterly fucked, Portland's Black Elk generates the kind of gutteral ugliness not celebrated on a widespread level since the heyday of Amphetamine Reptile.
