Quite possibly one of the greatest albums ever made, this untitled release is the meeting of two of Australia’s most interesting, most underground, and most belligerently misanthropic sound-artists.  Any collaboration between Buttress O’Kneel, with her sample-happy postpop cheeky-as-a-schoolgirl breakmashing, and Lucas Darklord, with his dark grinding corporate evil-as-a-business-retreat scrapescapes, was sure to be extreme.  But their decision to cover the entirety of Led Zeppelin’s fourth album, track by track, using no source-material but the original songs themselves, makes an extremity that will perhaps awaken the sleeping Rock Gods, dormant since Bonham’s untimely vomit-inhaling demise.  A rock-purist’s worst nightmare, and a sample-police’s greatest dream, this album marks the year 2009 as a year when THINGS CHANGED.
