Matthew Bower is a man. A noisy man. A dark man. He's known primarily for coaxing dense, filthy walls of evil, chaotic fizzing sludge out of every rocker's favourite appendage (apart from the obvious unremovable one down their pants) This project has a sort of doomy black metal edge with faintly industrial leanings. The frequencies sound tortured & flayed. And quite harrowing. There's no tune ...

8/10 Brian Staff review, 28 January 2011

Matthew Bower is a man. A noisy man. A dark man. He's known primarily for coaxing dense, filthy walls of evil, chaotic fizzing sludge out of every rocker's favourite appendage (apart from the obvious unremovable one down their pants) This project has a sort of doomy black metal edge with faintly industrial leanings. The frequencies sound tortured & flayed. And quite harrowing. There's no tune (unsurprisingly!) and the faintly psychedelic tendrils hanging from some of Skullflower's recent work are absent, replaced with anguish, malevolence & tortured tones. A very sprawling, meandering cranium-crushing piece indeed. Horseback contrastingly provide a much more linear sound on t' other side. Initially coming across like an anthemic, marching post-rock act with an old proggy organ buried in the mix, the evil stakes are heightened with the throaty, raspy Black Metal-esque snarls and the increasingly waspish, volatile trails of guitar fallout. By the end of 'High Ashen Slab', my head is back in a (welcome) vortex of mayhem & distortion. 'Another World' is, at first, built upon caustic feedback-y guitar shapes & some ragged throat abuse before it develops a Satanic backward masked angle that is strangely, intoxicatingly psychedelic. Probably the most noxious record we have in this week, it's possibly one of the most interesting too!
