liziuz returns … with a full length of active drones, broken concrete rhythms and introverted electronic acoustics.
9 cinematic lonely ecstasy-scapes. smoke gathering, the click of a door unlocking and the slow rise of a tobacco cloud swirl up to the fan blades - but there is beauty in these tributaries, snowed upon, water logged washing away signs of life - cigarette butts, a ticket stub, an overcoat...
unfolding motion and movement inside filtered power drones never content to linger too long in one corner of old berlin’s dusty flats, stairwells and balconies. suddenly hanging above the cold steam a razor guitar cuts through - solitary, metallic and twisting between delighted timbre and broken joy. a trip one might have heard from the velvet underground if they were given only incremental electricity. this is patient, restrained musical architecture that rewards those without the key.
truly give this a listen, one of the most unusual, immersive and beautiful recordings of this time based on the daring, widescreen and original mixing pushing unconscious dark psychedelic narratives into massive spaces.
I’m a big Merzbow fan and I’ve only listened to some of Prurient’s material, so to hear that both experimental legends made a record together was an instant grab for me! This is quite easily one of the darkest sounding noise albums, as the walls of ambient noise clashing with these horror industrial sounds makes for a greatly disturbing experience. Hard to say why this is so cool in less than 500 characters, but I can say this is making me interested to get into Prurient’s deeper discog! ༺𝔇𝔯𝔢𝔞𝔡𝔣𝔲𝔩𝔰༻
Such a diverse array of approaches to industrial music, whatever one might say about Prurient's output, the man is consistently and defiantly surprising. Like his album "Casablanca Flamethrower", this record is one of those magical audio-roaming grounds for one's morbid imagination to run wild. You can envision strange and startling worlds and alternative histories to music like this. Ben Harris
This album is perfect for a rainy day and i absolutely love how the beats and things mix with the ambience of different field recordings. One of my favorite albums to be released this year Gunnison6610
