This. Is. A. Beast. Sound and video artist J.R. Robinson brings another installment from Wrekmeister Harmonies on a truly massive scale. Since Bring It All Down he’s been working with 30 musicians, including members of Einstürzende Neubauten, Cave, and Twilight. The result being a pummeling drone/doom filled affair.

Wrekmeister Harmonies‘ third album is a captivating experience. Despite its very particular reference points (Carlo Gesualdo and Father John Geoghan) it remains abstract enough for the listener to impart his or her own interpretation. It is a hauntingly beautiful album, even at its most abrasive and industrial moments, perhaps because it plays with those familiar madrigals of our religious heritage and blends them with doom more typically associated with acts like Church of Misery. The album is transcending, but in a troubling way. It can take the listener to another realm, a realm at once lofty and bathed in darkness.
