6/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 20 April 2011
It's too early for this crazy business. Hailing from the grimy Midwestern state of Ohio, this duo of Mark Van Fleet and Nathan Reynolds do their damnedest to replicate the sound of your worst Gothic nightmares to tape. This album is outright noise insanity! Primarily a collection of collages and cut-up home recordings, these sloth-like movements feature all sorts of terrifying and despicable tones. Slo-mo vocal churnings are accompanied by excruciating scratches and drones - each more potent and foul than the next - building to a crescendo of pure audio depravity. 'Followed By A Wraith' basically takes no-fi, aggro basement slop to it's logical conclusion. Definitely of interest to you sludge worshipping, esoteric tape collecting miserablists out there. Far too oppressive to be enjoyed on a beautiful day like today.
