4.5 superbAlabaster Jones | July 5th 16

With last year's project Mutant, on which Arca expanded his glitchy electronic take on post-industrial and simultaneously demonstrated that he could make a concept work. This new tape, known as Entraņas (which is Spanish for entrails), is exercise in visceral, depraved post-industrial, almost reminiscent of the darkest days of acts like Skinny Puppy. It's twenty-five minutes long and flows like it's one whole song, and each moment of it is absolutely riveting. Through the booming beat work that is hard hitting, yet ostensibly fragile all the same, an atmosphere of unease is created. The samples thrown in are all excellent as well, as some are almost smooth and unchallenged by the surrounding music, while others are sonic representations of terror and pain that are constantly rattled by the bass and the noise. It offers commentary on the collective schadenfreude of humanity, whether it be focused on ideals, or each other. Truly, Arca has cemented his status as one of the most interesting artists in the industrial/electronic scene today with this truly harrowing project.

3.2 goodErwann S. STAFF | November 27th 23

Entranas is early Arca at their least musical, sounds clashing into each other while Arca's suffering vocals add even more eeriness to an already surreal listen. Interesting for sure, but Mutant, &&&&& and the self-titled all have more potent effect on me.
