The latest release from LARMO, unveiled on May 14th, 2024, stands as a true masterpiece. Blending elements of raw noise, industrial grit, distorted vocals, and entrancing trance melodies in his own personal way Mirosław Matyasik crafts a work that is both sonically intricate and undeniably captivating. While its melodies may not lend themselves to serene landscapes, there's a compelling potency in the sonic ferocity and aggression, particularly highlighted by Gosia's vocals on "NBxN.N." Matyjasik deftly explores the multifaceted realm of industrial music, showcasing a richness that places this album in high regard. With over two decades of artistic evolution, he's honed his craft, delivering compositions that resonate with both seasoned enthusiasts and casual listeners. Achieving ambitious heights while retaining accessibility is no small feat, yet "Alarm" accomplishes just that. At times, it unleashes an onslaught akin to Merzbow's cacophonous assaults ("HNW X" or "HNW XX"), yet seamlessly transitions into infectious rhythms fit for the darkest club settings ("PL(STICK)", "Flat Breath" – including the sensational MONYA remix, or "Grit"). Experimental interludes ("Separator", "Komunikat") further expand the album's sonic palette. Collaborations abound on this release, with notable contributions from artists such as Gosia (Małgorzata Wójcik), Patryk Rzeszutek (BIESY | GLITCHANGEL), Paula Pieczonka (MOIRA | DIRTY DEEDS | END FOREST), Łukasz "Pachu" Pach (HOST), and MONYA. A publication of this caliber demands attention; I wholeheartedly recommend it.
