Repression's Blossom LP
SIGE 70 / USA / 2019
"Aaron Turner’s solo debut Repression's Blossom explores the realm of avant-garde and reductionist metal. Avoiding the pitfalls of unintentional monotone, the album's abstract narrative tightropes through viscous noise mayhem and clinical serenity towards the mythical echelons of minimalism with gravity analogous to Kevin Drumm, Caspar Brötzmann and Pauline Oliveros. The drone-supported fragments of exquisitely manipulated audio create a magnificent multi-layered backdrop for Turner’s feral guitar mangling, which extends across lyrical abstraction and concrete art."
