soundscapes give way to industrial clangs and bangs,
From the opening track 'Metallic' you know what you're in for, lots of
long edgey soundscapes, industrial clangs/bangs, and insistent beats.
But then the huge 'Steelphony' starts up, and you are transported to
some alien factory planet, this is total immersion, of the nicest kind.

The music on this album was inspired by a visit to the incredible 'Magna'
steel museum in Sheffield, England. Hence the strong 'steel' theme running
through the tracks on this album.

OF THE STEEL
More ambient than usual, but then this is NK so it’s all very eerie, with
lots of long edgey soundscapes, industrial clangs/bangs, and subdued
beats. More ‘spacey’ than the other albums, more ‘immersive’ even.
At last Noise Kommandoh visits Lutton and records a super
live set in the Dog Kennel. Playing a selection of ‘Steel’ tracks
of course, that you will know from the studio albums.
1. Steel 10:34
2. Plasmastreams 1:40

4. Blue Steel 17:35
