Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-11-10 
A musical collective, from Wikipedia: " led by musician and composer JR Robinson, is an experimental music collective based in Chicago, Illinois, United States. Named after the Béla Tarr movie Werckmeister Harmonies, it combines elements of drone music, serialism, post-rock, and heavy metal. Wrekmeister Harmonies typically performs a single composition, often almost an hour in length, beginning with a slow build, shifting into a cathartic middle section, concluding with either a peaceful or disquieting resolution". This two long tracks that evolve, the first out of what could surely be considered Classical, into crushing fantastic heaviness the likes of I am not sure theres any real comparison to. This scratches the itch altogether that only artists like Khanate, Swans, Sunn((O))) can. Holy mother of god this is good.

1)* (32:00) quiet fade in, angelic voices and minimal organ drone, builds with indecipherable vocals, organ, beautiful sad dramatic viola cello and harp arrangements, becomes quite choral and new classical, 14 minutes in a major shift to dark wave ambient blackness then a slow doom metal plod builds to an epic crush, at 7.5 remaining it "ends" and a beautiful dense head nodder with creepy screamo vocs ensue, holy fucking wow, ends cold EPIC!
2) (16:47) quiet creepy low drone w percussive tones slow
build looping til a cool slow plod beat evolves and gets heavier... and heavier, big beautiful fuzz/noise bass, so beautiful with subtle female background etheral vocs, crushing and lush
