Album Review

Locrian – “Territories” – [Bloodlust]

cinder   6/29/2011   A Library, CD

Chicagoans Andr?? Foisy, Terence Hannum, Steven Hess create Locrian, with a few extras on the release. Super intense darkness. Starts with the ear aching high pitched feedback, the kind that makes you go “what the fuck, man!” and soon delves deep into the abyss of dark doom metal drones. It builds up louder and louder, until you feel almost suffocated. “Tradition has failed” repeats over and over. Turn it up loud and feel the rumbles beneath your feet. YES! It continues into a fucking fantastic murky experimental drone filled record. Serious low tones, make sure your bass is up to par. Beautiful, and remorseful at times (saxophone? Brilliant). Painful vocal screams from burning hell ride the black metal guitars. This band is fantastic at both ends of the metal spectrum.
