- blind thorns: blind thorns
(2014, cd, bel, cheap satanism records)
The trio produces experimental improvised music influenced by no-wave, kraut / psychedelic, noise, electroacoustic and ethnic folklore to produce a primal and intense music.
Blind Thorns conjures a hypnotic and horrifying dreamscape of sounds that simultaneously pummels and entrances listeners into ecstatic acquiescence. Wordless saccharine vocals, ethereal guitar, and meditative percussion evolve into a brutal growl, crushing riffage, and relentless pounding. The serenity of a deserted cemetery, wind whistling on the breeze, leaves rustling, a train in the distance, images that seem to appear before reality is peeled back and the sound of warped tape and backwards incantations cross fade into an echoic torture chamber. Amorphous yet telepathic and controlled communication between the instruments creates dark impressionistic textures, while still rocking the fuck out with a knowing sense of humor.
Out on the Cheap Satanism label.
