Dawid Kowalski "Whatever It Takes" is an amazing piece of composed experimental/industrial/(post-)harsh noise music. I thoroughly enjoy the compositions as they seem to have been carefully crafted and involve several different techniques ranging from something that sounds like a raw, crude no-input mixer feedback, distorted harsh noise textures and layers of heavy synth. It's also great to see yet another noise artist experiment with the use of minimal melody which adds to the haunting atmosphere of the album.

Whatever It Takes is the newest effort from Shredded Nerve, the project of Ohio-born but New York City based artist Justin Lakes.

Focused and concise tape manipulations, dizzying synthesizer loops, low frequency mixer feedback & field recordings of late night walks through unfamiliar New York City territory.

Maximum disorientation and a slow burning sense of dread. A purgatory-like state. An attempt to exorcise an overwhelming feeling of displacement and tribulation.

Some of the most impressive Shredded Nerve material yet. Absolutely essential.
