Boomkat Product Review:
"Another instalment of agro, ambience and head on rhythms on the Forwind catalogue coming from Distortion Of The Cell by Seasons (pre-din). The Manchester based artist is probably most commonly associated with his work in the ambient and drone fields having released a string of well received albums on his own Thy-Rec imprint, Mystery Sea and Type Recordings. Distortion of the Cell continues down the darker paths explored on his 2012 release Lesser and Still and 2017's hiatus ending Kill-Sweep.
The latest addition to the mysterious Mancunian’s catalogue is a varied release that takes in several stylistic approaches while remaining a coherent listen. Roughly half of the album is focused on a meld of post-punk and dingy club influenced beats propelling the atmospherics that range from warm and engaging to full throttle and abrasive. The beatless interludes and final stretch take in some more retrained ambience as well as some searing efforts in that cross section between drone and the warmer end of the noise spectrum. There's a thematic and musical twisting of the lines that hints at a corruption at source and of self, and if you're in a good mood an eventual dissolution in the soaring static."
