Boomkat Product Review:
Longtime Touch collaborator gets right under the skin with this intently focussed album of bleak drones. Heitor Alvelos is perhaps best known for his photography on the cover of Biosphere's 'Substrata' beside a plethora of other work for the roster, such as Fennesz, BJNilsen, Rafael Toral and Phillip Jeck. Visual work aside, his music has been released under as Autodigest, Antifluffy and Before Surgery thru Ash International and The Tapeworm, too. With 'Faith' he commits his debut solo recordings, a low-lit showcase of gloomy spectres and confessional confrontation manifest as dense, monolithic slabs of low end harmonic molasses and parched, slow moving noise texture. For their powerful sense of impending doom and abyssal space, and ability to sustain the rarest sort of frequency pressure, they're probably best compared with a fine range of sonic alchemists, from the work of Zbigniew Karkowski to Helge Sten (Deathprod) and The Hafler Trio or Mika Vainio at his most unnerving. Recommended.
