Hospital Productions finally release the first proper new album from Skin Crime in years, a quietly harrowing, Japanese ghost story-inspired album of darkest ambient and industrial shadowplay inverting noise convention and exploring ideas of tense, slow-burn patience instead of aggressive intensity. Described by the label as “the missing link between Kevin Drumm, Painjerk and Mika Vainio”, Skin Crime took a 12 year hiatus until 2016 and the bloodshed of their instantly sold-out, 20CD boxset of archival material. That same year they also issued ‘Ghosts I Have Been’, a crushingly bleak album inspired by Japanese mythology and ghost stories which have paved the way for this new one, where the band’s Patrick O’Neil and Mark Jameson continue to refine their instincts into the dankest brand of organic ambient noise.

There are so many things I could say about why this album is absolutely perfect. But to keep it short, single-handedly the most depressing album I've listened to, but also the most fantastic album I've listened to. Would highly recommend to anyone willing to give it a listen. mcdoob

6 drone tracks that make my stomach sick with dread. This is the soundtrack to the documentary that has all the answers to our suffering, just to find out the answers reveal a truth so horrifying and revolting you cannot stand to live in this world anymore from your newly found disgust for humanity. The last few minutes of We All Get It In The End is your death. UntitledKirk
