Anenzephalia is one of the more recognizable names in the completely inaccessible genre of death industrial, and while they tend to mix this style with dark ambient, the end result is not only an interesting listen, but a worthwhile one as well. The track names are just sequential Roman numerals, further pushing the mechanical, yet subtlety of the record. "I" starts with an eerie drone which repeats seemingly ad infinitum. The next three songs are all impenetrable, with huge amount of static, background noise, and drones engulfing them. The music barely forms what can be heard as notes, but it all comes together quite nicely. By the time "VIII", which is a slightly more demented reprise of "I" comes around, you feel like you've been there a while, even if only thirty-six minutes have gone by. That shows how tense and unnerving this record can get, especially on tracks like "V" and "VII". A challenging yet rewarding listen, Noehaem should be checked out by anyone interested in death industrial/dark ambient.
