Secret Thirteen Reviews Unsound Festival 2015 - SURPRISE including the performances of Damien Dubrovnik Live and SHXCXCHCXSH A/V World Premiere
"......Yet another unannounced Manggha act that left no one wanting was Damien Dubrovnik. The Danish noisers gave what I thought was the most impressive performance of the whole festival in terms of presentation. The blinding-white strobe shone on Loke and Christian as they shredded out a torrent of passion and blood for all to see. It was a voyeuristic experience If ever I've had one. The power of “Vegas Fountain” was amplified to a new level and every tiny detail of their sound could be felt: you could hear mellow undertones and synth brushes through the abrasive layers of noise. There was physicality and emotion combined and made to explode."
"......SHXCXCHCXSH’s atmospheric soundscapes were supplemented by impressive visuals. The set started slowly, delicately and did not venture into rougher territories, which was to their favour. Sometimes the Swedes showed almost ambient dynamics although the signature pulsations were always present. The music flowed nicely and it was the best performance of that evening for me, although it would have worked even better in a more chamber-like environment or even a seated venue."
