Boomkat Product Review:
Some especially punishing black metal from the mighty Wrnlrd, this album melts a whole arsenal of unlikely instruments (like banjos, samplers and violins) in with a host of more expected noise machines like guitars and basses, to produce a sound so serrated, so entrenched in brightly finished filth, it'll actually make your ears hurt switching it off. Listening to the world without that coating of noxious, trebly noise feels wrong afterwards and soon you'll be rushing back to the frosty echo chambers of 'Grave Gown' and the detuned twenty-minutes of sonic GBH that makes up 'War'. Wrnlrd have certainly added an extra viciousness and incisiveness to the staple sounds of black metal, but not at the expense of sounding like plain old noise music. All the right genre elements are present, but with a little more oomph in the mid to lower frequency range. Generally quite terrifying but incredibly addictive stuff, nevertheless. Awesome.
