Album Review

Reviewed 2011-07-20 
Noisy metallic drone. Skullflower are noise legends and this recording finds the band reuniting with the original drummer, Stuart Dennison, from the nineties. This is free, loose, buzzy, fuzzed, static psych-informed noise noise noise. Manic distortion and swirling guitar squeals play off of some distant shouting vocals, cello, and violin. Heavily layered, primitive, messy, loud, and just brutal. Fans of Family Underground, Sunn O))), and Gang Wizard take note. No FCCs.

1. Droning heavy guitar noise and squalling sustained feedback with bashing drum kit abuse here and there. Relentless distorted guitar urgent texture. (24:16)
2. Vague rock rhythm opens with metal-like overdriven noodling, loose 2-chord structure to the drone. (10:01)
3. Less aggressive but more subtly menacing, dark, dreary, hypnotic, and circular. Cuts out abruptly. (17:45)
