    Review by Traumatic Static Webzine - http://traumaticstaticwebzine.blogspot.com/2016/02/review-sluice-room-reverse-viscera.html

    A Sluice Room is where used disposables such as
    incontinence pads and bed pans are dealt with,
    and reusable products are cleaned and disinfected.
    So in other words, I'd expected this to be some
    sort of clinical Death Industrial release along
    the lines of WHITE WALLS, SHP, Etc...This was not
    the case. "Reverse Viscera Talisman" is the first
    release from the new label Sink Slop who claim to
    release "Prescription-Strength Noise" and after
    giving this a spin I can say that is a pretty
    accurate description as this stuff is like a bad
    trip or an audio overdose. So far the label has
    three releases out, All from the SLUICE ROOM
    project and I am quite excited to hear more
    from these guys...But for now, Lets get into
    just exactly what it is we are dealing with
    here.

    I.) OH, I CAN HEAR THE GORE INSIDE ME!:
    The Sink Slop Records website describes this E.P. in the
    following way: "Your innards resonate with the sounds of
    a banned horror film. Listen with enraptured ear this
    night, that you may know the ignorant sorcery that
    created you. Then invert and banish the disease with
    this talisman of ecstatic noise from Sluice Room."
    That's one way to sum it up. Here is my take on it.
    I don't know what a reverse viscera talisman is exactly,
    (Some sort of inverted occult charm fashioned from organs?)
    But I am sure the process of creating one may sound something
    like this. Track one opens sounding like a live Black Metal
    gig pressed to vinyl and then slowly spun in reverse.
    Backwards rhythms, A choir of tormented screams, growls
    and rasps, What sounds like manipulated and looped guitars
    and various other static textures and noise elements come
    at you at once. An Industrial grade spin cycle that may or
    may not be a rift, portal or vortex to the depths of Hell.
    An utter cacophony of cataclysmic chaos. All is dense,
    Lo-fi and terrifying. Reversed female voices scream in
    absolute terror within a maelstrom of madness and mayhem.
    I honestly can't say that I've ever heard a release quite
    like this. Even the many Blackened Noise projects we've
    covered over the years haven't been quite in line with
    what SLUICE ROOM are cooking up in their chaotic cauldron.
    It sounds like an endless trash compactor is crushing junk
    metal, scraps of wreckage, human bodies (both dead and alive)
    and all manner of filth and trash in a mid-paced cyclic rhythm.
    There are faint traces of melody buried in the mix that create
    a pretty cool backing atmosphere. Things twist, Turn and Transition
    taking us further down the rabbit hole and leading us into different
    passages where some layers shine through more than others. Obscured
    vocal chants begin to rise towards the end in a mantra that we can't
    quite decipher. Either way the spell is cast and you're fucked.

    II.) THE CONJURER'S WORK UNDONE:
    The next and final track is a bit different. "The Conjurer's Work
    Undone" spreads out like multiple sheets of static being laid on
    top of one another. Strange mumbles and mutterings are heard as
    if secrets are being exchanged but are not audible enough to
    comprehend. Lo-fi drones radiate and resonate creating panoramic
    stretches of sound that vanish without warning and without a trace.
    Electronic signals are sent through phasers in cyclic movements.
    The whole piece is strangely captivating and at times becomes
    hypnotic. Rising layers of filth spin like Industrial caliber
    turbine blades at varying speeds...Sending rushing gusts of
    dense wind throughout the piece. They gain speed as a howling
    resonance becomes noticed, Adding an eerie and ghostly quality
    to the track. Although I've heard similar stuff many times from
    many artists...I've never heard it quite like this. SLUICE ROOM
    definitely have their own sound and a unique quality to their
    work that I can't quite find the words for. Disregarding what
    I said before...After getting further into this release I must
    say that these guys do have a very clinical sound to them. At
    least on this one. Sounding something like a large, Monotonous
    machine working hard to disinfect various types of medical waste
    in a dimly lit boiler room in the far reaches of a run down facility.
    The ambiance of a mental institution for your listening pleasure.

    AN INTERESTING FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH BOTH THIS PROJECT AND THIS
    LABEL. I AM DEFINITELY WANTING TO HEAR MORE:
