Boomkat Product Review:
Vessel & Ossia’s no-holds-barred FuckPunk label mark a full year of doing as they please with the label’s strongest release yet; a free-ranging suite of analogue noise, black metal and folk-chant called ^___^ and by written by Bristol’s MXLX.
It’s a record that picks you up in one place, only to drop you off somewhere quite different yet the same, panning a slowly unfolding and unpredictable topography which naturally takes in the steepled, ten-minute drone-noise panorama These are Hammers in Motion What Obliterate Completely the Morose Walls of our Own Failure, The Tumult of Which More Sonorous Then Any Bastarding Trumpet beside one of the strangest mutations of sludgy black metal you’re likely to hear in 2015 with the 13 minutes of To Bollocks with You, Scum-Sodden Malcontent! I Blistered The Path Myself! My House is Upfill, It’s an Airship and it’s Fucking Wicked M8, and the 18 minute collage of squally electronics, layered folk harmonics and plainsong in Magnificent Upfuck for The Most Totally Joyousest Motherfuckinest Sweet Eyes You (hahaha wheee!).
