Guitarist Aaron Turner of Old Man Gloom, Sumac, and Isis fame will release his new album Repression's Bloom on November 15.
Turner is now streaming his track "Underlying Nature Of Habitual Dishonesty" which, despite sounding like it has lots of instrumentation, is all guitar. Which is a credit to how deep Turner's knowledge of the instrument goes.
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.
