So much heavy lineage in this trio. Members of Isis, Baptists and Russian Circles assembled to become Sumac, and they wasted no time developing band chemistry: their veiny-thick instrumental lines tangle around each other tightly, nobody ever missing a beat. What One Becomes is beautifully crushing. On Thrill Jockey.

9/10 Greg B. Customer review, 2nd February 2017

Aaron Turner has kept himself busy since the disbanding of Isis (the band). In recent times, he’s been focused on Sumac, a band whose intention for Turner was to create the heaviest music he’s ever written, and it shows. Working with Nick Yacyshyn (drummer for Baptists) and Brian Cook (bassist for Russian Circles, ex-Botch), their latest effort is probably their most intense and devastating work to date. The album’s theme is about dealing with isolation and anxiety, and with four out of the five songs around the 10-minute mark, the experience is a beautifully unpleasant one, and where Sumac (and indeed Turner) goes next will bring up some intriguing thoughts.
