BEGINNING TO FALL IN LINE BEFORE ME, SO DECOROUSLY, THE NATURE OF ALL THAT MUST BE TRANSFORMED
On the trio’s third album, the supergroup explores two side-long tracks of superb abstraction - Blurred noise, dark hurdy-gurdy and thunderous harmonics build a potent mantra of jagged electricity.
Ambarchi and O’Malley provide the perfect brute-rock rhythm section to Haino’s recklessly pure expression through instrument and voice. For close to four decades, Haino has been a legendary figure in Japan’s avant-garde community through his commanding presence in the band Fushitsusha and numerous solo ventures. Ambarchi, a prolific electro-acoustic composer of heavy ambience and hypno-rock, has long stood at the leading edge of Australia’s experimental music scene, while O’Malley remains a principle architect for the drone / doom metal project Sunn O))) in harnessing extreme sub-harmonic frequencies.
