After the brief Charles Cohen reinterpreted teaser back in 2014, Indonesian hardcore outfit Senyawa return, as promised, to Rabih Beaini’s Morphine imprint with an extremely intrepid full length entitled Menjadi. From the outset, its clear we’re in for something completely original with the unnerving ‘Bala’, clashing torrents of screeched strings against a deep, Tuvan-styled throat gurgle, followed by the more intense, ritualistic drumming sessions ‘Gaib’ and ‘Hadirlah Suci’. The impassioned battle cry of ‘Bekal Iimu’ provides a moment of respite, building a tense atmosphere for the mesmerizing, opiatic guitar and vocal duet of ‘Di Kala Sudah’. ‘Menjadi Jadi’ regresses back to the kind of haunting, sorcery-tinged percussion one would expect to find at a tribal sacrifice deep in the Indonesian outback, jumping in and out of rhythm, spiked with a galvanizing Shaman’s chant; finishing up on the dark ethereal string outro ‘Gugur’.
