Worship is the Cleansing of the Imagination ou a última edição da Hydra Head

Som para esta tarde chuvosa e friorenta. Split de JK Flesh de Justin Broadrick com o não menos prolífico Dominick Fernow aka Prurient. O título seria o melhor do ano caso a edição não estivesse marcada para 2013.

A Hydra Head diz:

Worship is the Cleansing of the Imagination is a product of mutual admiration, a result of two generations of artists inspiring each other and feeding off their sonic revelations. It’s only fitting that this meeting of minds, this exercise in mining new territories, and this bridging of a generational gap serves as the final release for the long-running art-metal label Hydra Head Records. While both an acknowledgment of an artist that served as an impetus to the label and an embrace of one of the underground’s most daring and invigorating young noisemakers, this split release perfectly encapsulates Hydra Head’s musical vision. While the self-proclaimed “imminent demise” of the label is certainly a tragic blow to the international community built around Hydra Head’s art metal predilections, it’s reassuring to see their swan song so perfectly capture the essence of its mission statement. Prepare to be pummeled.
