Have you ever wondered why noise music sometimes sounds like dentistry? Wonder no more: this earsplitting short album from Jambi, Indonesia’s Torturewave is (allegedly) made from recordings of actual dental surgery. Described as “post-operative noise,” all tracks in the Torturewave canon are thematically and perhaps literally based on medical procedures. Fans of Developer, early Wolf Eyes, and Hijokaidan should rip this. FCC clean, but much worse for your inner mental state. Play any/all tracks.

1. (5:24) screeching feedback drills, waves of harsh static, broken satellite transmissions gargled and sloshed around in a deep demonic larynx
2. (4:05) static walls of white/pink noise, swirling dial-up sounds
3. (4:01) more savage drilling, dense reverberating feedback
4. (5:10) dense dial-up sounds, whirring and buzzing, broken Atari game where the aliens win and destroy the world
