BRIDE WORE BLACK + PHANTASM NOCTURNES "SHE WAS BEFORE THE GODS" SINGLE-SIDED C52 (AOW 467)
Awesome new collaborative cassette from Bride Wore Black and Phantasm Nocturnes, a super-intense series of three pieces that form a suite of sorts. The sounds here range from creepy, empty and hollowed out-ambient to raging, venom-filled PE style explosions and all-out noise terror to eastern-sounding trickles of melodies and synth gurgles. Layers upon layers of sounds here, a masterful display of orchestration and arrangement. This stuff sounds ancient, dusty, and severely evil-or perhaps simply unbound by time or morality. If you're familiar with either project's solo work, then you know that both artists are adept at creating suffocating, horror-infused atmosphere of ambience and noise. Together, they've created a work of immense power, suffused with an aura of raw, sanity-destroying terror. Fucking amazing work, highly recommended!
