Industrial metal kings Godflesh have announced a string of fall North American tour dates in support of their critically-lauded album of 2014, A World Lit Only By Fire. The tour will commence on September 11 and extend through October 3. Experimental noise artist Prurient, who will be supporting the recently released Frozen Niagara Falls, will be providing accompanying the band on all stops. Those dates can be found below.
The forthcoming full-length album from noise innovator Prurient, Frozen Niagara Falls, can now be streamed in full over at Pitchfork. The 16-track opus will officially be released on May 12 via Profound Lore and can be purchased here. If almost 90 minutes of forward-thinking noise and soundscapes appeals to you, and it should, then the follow-up to 2011’s Bermuda Drain is right up your alley. Stream the opus over at Pitchfork now.
Prurient will soon be releasing their new double album Frozen Niagara Falls next month and a new track has arisen. Full of Prurient‘s standard noise and psychotry, “Greenpoint” is a phenomenal–repeat, PHENOMENAL– track. I love it. The track is a little over ten minutes, but it is such a wonderful listen. You can check out this feedback-driven beast after the jump. Continue reading →
Experimental sound architect Dominic Fernow, better known as Prurient, has released a new track from his upcoming record, Frozen Niagara Falls, over at Rolling Stone. The new track is the chaotic yet serene “Dragonflies to Sew You Up”, which features colorful layers of electronics writhing underneath a persistent, pummeling, mechanized rhythm. Check out what Fernow calls a “chaotic and decadent mess” after the break.
Experimental noise architect Dominick Fernow (aka Prurient) has announced the release of the follow up to 2011’s well-received Bermuda Drain. The new full-length, titled Frozen Niagara Falls, will be released through Profound Lore on May 12. The album will boast a 90-minute runtime comprised of 16 new tracks. The record’s artwork, track listing and A/V trailer after the break.
As previously reported, the upcoming JK Flesh and Prurient split, Worship is the Cleansing of the Imagination, will be final Hydra Head release. The split will be released on December 11th but Brooklyn Vegan has an exclusive stream of two tracks from the upcoming split. JK Flesh’s (Justin Broadrick of Godflesh and Jesu) “Fear of Fear” is a noisy, heavy industrial beat down with a wicked primal beat. Prurient’s “I Understand You” is ambient and full of haunting layers of humming drones. Stream the songs below and be sure to pick it up on the 11th.
The legendary Hydra Head Records will end its nearly twenty year run with a split LP from noise artist Prurient and Justin Broadrick’s (Godflesh,Jesu,etc) industrial slam factory JK Flesh, whose debut album Posthuman is available now. The split will be entitled Worship is the Cleansing of the Imagination and will see a release on December 11th. Pitchfork is currently streaming a cut from the upcoming split record entitled “I Understand You”, which is written by Prurient. The track is seven minutes of churning noise buzzing over a simple keyboard melody. The track is very repetitive but in a hypnotic kind of way. Check it out and be sure to listen to JK Flesh’s Posthuman. Here is a cut from that record.
Above is the grotesque artwork (created by Throbbing Gristle’s Genesis Breyer P-Orridge) for a new four song double 7″ release from noise artist, Prurient. The upcoming release will be titled Wrapped in the Flame of Illusion, Masked in the Clay of Behavior, and will be released on January 10th. Pitchfork has premiered the first track from the release, “God Is Truth and Light Is His Shadow”. It’s a very odd song that features a calm ambient drone with some strange samples layered on top of it. Just give it a listen.
I am a big fan of Hydra Head Records. They seem to have an affinity for signing some of the most unique artists, and this release I am reviewing is no exception. Ian Dominick Fernow aka Prurient, is an electronic/noise/experimental artist that is, to be put in the nicest terms possible, weird. And I like weird. His new album, Bermuda Drain, was released earlier this year and it is probably one of the more interesting albums I have heard this year.
