Boomkat Product Review:
Wolf Eyes' Nate Young synthesises the sound of your primordial nightmares on the fifth 'Regression' session via detuned modules, tapes and percussion to mesmerising effect.
Young operates at a such a sluggish pace that notions of deja entendu and EVP feel so much more valid, and all-too-real as he takes your beta-state to a point hovering just around the sub-conscious. Sweetly soured, off-key organ chords seep in with opener 'Forever Day', slowly dilating time and space, opening fine neural gateways for the high frequency scree of 'When Nothing Works' to slip into and infect, before 'Beneath The Mist' casts us back to deep-lodged memories of drum comms and the barely formed landscapes of 'Worlds Behind'.
Flip it and 'Escape With Nothing' pans Schaeffer-like concrète shapes to the peripheries, and 'Only Fallen Heads' paws out quavering chords and almost human voices strangely reminiscent of Rashad Becker's notional species. 'The Bastard's Gums' kicks us out with waking prods of electro-shocked percussion as a melodic light starts to seep back in, but whether from distant stars or our own, we're unsure.
