Prurient albums don’t come around as often as they once did, presumably because he’s also busy with his Vatican Shadow, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement etc. projects, but I think also it just sounds like he’s spending more time on them. Like with ‘Frozen Niagara Falls’, you can just tell that a lot of time and effort went into making that album, especially compared to his more lo-fi, brutal early cassette releases. ‘Unknown Rains’ is his first album as Prurient since the aforementioned record, and was initially a limited edition cassette. As seems to be the way these days, it’s found its way onto vinyl.

The immense opening cut ‘Let Your Mind Free (Whip The Corpse)’ erupts straight into it with gargantuan blasts of churning, caustic noise and distorted vocals. Followed by the mournful ‘Before Rain Becomes Snow’ which kinda reminds me of something off of ‘Feral’ by Black Sunroof! ‘In The Ruins Of My Brother’ is Prurient at his most Spacious, stripping things right back, creating a weightless sensation of floating inside a vast vacuum, his vocal comes across like some sort of message from a spirit inside a dream. ‘Red Poppy Laughter’ is an awesome track, and a fine example of how he’s in a league of his own in the whole power electronics/noise world - there’s just so much more in there - something ethereal, stirring and really very beautiful.
