Album Review

White Suns – “Sinews” – [Load Records]

abacus   5/30/2012   A Library, CD

With their first release out on ugEXPLODE and this one on Load Records you know this has to have some power and unpredictability and yes, another full-assault, iron blitzkrieg from this blistering Brooklyn trio. An overwhelming leviathan of scraping guitars and ceaselessly pounding drums interrupted by sudden, nerve-wracking drops and builds that threaten to tear apart but never give you the privilege of release. Fire Sermon especially tests your patience with minutes of a tense, monotone buzz that teases you with burgeoning drums and rivulets of feedback seeping through the seams of this destructive monster inflating beyond its means. They constantly hold you just over the precipice, at times curbing the onslaught as on ??Flesh Vault,??so that they can recite to you their desperately painful and powerful poetry, revealing the bleak vastness of their wreckage. Oath??closes with an apocalyptic anthem that tortures your senses with expectations all the way to the very sudden, cold conclusion.
