Boomkat Product Review:
This Canadian duo of Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff have concocted a veritable prog-doom epic in the format of a single hour long piece, caked in rasping fuzz and synthesizer atmospherics. Thaumogenesis starts inconspicuously enough, with some drifting synth pads and meandering bass only for all hell to break loose five minutes in, with a huge swell in volume from a monolithic wave of distorted guitar and bass. Over its considerable duration, the dynamics of the piece fluctuate massively, taking in moments of frazzled electronic soundscaping and interspersing them with grinding, glacially slow sludgecore heaviness. As the disc comes to its cacophonous close you’d be forgiven for thinking your speakers were ablaze, with the excessive distortion levels reaching ear-singeing proportions.
