8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 07 July 2011
A Story Of Rats is the work of experimental musician and visual artist Garek Druss. You may be aware of Druss due to his involvement in Seattle duo Dull Knife and Portland's drone metal beats Tecumseh. 'Thought Forms' is his debut LP under his solo moniker and is a tour de force of dark ambient tones. Crafted using synths, voice, ghostly guitar murmurs and amplified paper and pencil (?) Druss has a crafted an otherworldly drone epic perfect for soundtracking your bleakest psychological moments. Evil, soundtrack-esque drones dominate 'Thought Forms' giving it an immersive industrial vibe that will haunt you long after the record is over. Perfect installation music that would most likely translate better with added visual stimulus. Still good on its own though. Comes in an ace screenprinted sleeve by Druss himself. He's fully hands on this lad.
