Marking the emergence of Steve Albini – a man whose influence in late 80s and early 90s music is rivalled only by that of Brian Eno in the 70s – Big Black’s Atomizer came as an explosive eruption of nihilistic noise, fusing hardcore with electro-industrial elements to create one of the most disruptive sonic attacks to that date. Words about sexual abuse, addiction, violence and self-immolation are set to a massive wall of lacerating, inter-clashing guitars and a remorseless drum machine, making Atomizer a landmark album in the lineage of all uncompromising and confrontational music.
