a vicious, viscous attack, as redolent of the primal punishment of early Swans, as the angular clangour of prime Public Image Ltd, yet shot through with a mercurial power & fiery intensity that could come from no-one else.
it’s a fool who predicts the next move of Gnod, seemingly less a musical collective & more a psychic force fuelled by maverick spirit & fearsome willpower. Their mind-frying 2015 triple-album ‘Infinity Machines’ stood proud as a towering work of experimental expansion, acidic invective & nihilistic abrasion - a record that we collectively adored. now, Just as dramatically as their restless disposition morphed their sound to a binary-driven direction for their last work, Gnod strip their electronic setup to a harrowing yet fiercely compelling colossus of bleak abjection. ‘Mirror’ is a work of bold reinvention & raw renewal, sculpting chaos & discord into a formidable statement of intent.
