Album Review

Reviewed 2013-06-22 
Slow-building and wonderfully abrasive experimental fare. The only thing scarier than the vocals you can understand are the ones you can't. Repetitive but intricate percussion underscores the noise. More subdued than previous Wolf Eyes releases; less aggressive than Burned Mind and more accessible than Dread. The relative simplicity amplifies the sense of foreboding. Perfect soundtrack for apocalyptic, industrial horror film. RIYL: ban saw on sheet metal, pretending you're a nihilist.

1. (6:01) Driving, ominous percussion, abrasive high-pitched [something], static in mid-range. Equally ominous and barely intelligible "spoken word" vocals.
2. (3:06) Similar to track 1, but more abrasive. Guitars enter the fray. I'm not sure if "spoken word" is the right term, but it's definitely not singing.
3. (1:29) Bleeps and chopped up, indecipherable vocal samples. Interlude of sorts.
4. (8:11) Two repeating, droney synth tones. Background sounds like Oneohtrix Point Never's Replica.
5. (12:17) Intro sounds like a giant lumbering toward your house. Plodding beat punctuated by intermittent, diverse bursts of sound, warped vocals. Speeds up halfway through. This is what I imagine taking too much Dramamine feels like.
6. (7:04) Could also function as a fire alarm.
