Prurient: Frozen Niagara Falls 3LP
Known as America’s most prominent noise figurehead, for nearly 20 years under the moniker of Prurient, Dominick Fernow has created a sonic entity unlike any other in the realm of experimental, ambient, and noise music respectively. Throughout a massive repertoire that consists of full-lengths, EPs, splits, singles, limited cassette runs and 7” releases etc. Prurient is one of the most important artists to define and reinvent the genre of noise music which in turn has made Fernow one of the premiere visionaries in the entire genre of experimental music.
Throughout the years Prurient has been known to constantly shape shift its sound into many mutations and incarnations within the noise genre through massive layered walls of sound consisting of harsh feedback, tortured vocals, meticulous sampling, machine-like industrial pounding, entrancing synth work, enticing beats, and waves of electronica to create an aura that treads the fine line of harsh noise extremity and atmospheric beauty.
Prurient’s first full-length album since the 2011 game changer “Bermuda Drain” sees Fernow deliver the most ambitious and massive Prurient album to date. A double-album clocking in at a near 90-minutes entitled “Frozen Niagara Falls”, the new Prurient album is set to define Fernow even more as a master within all the genres Prurient tends to crossover into. In what encompasses moments familiar from the entire Prurient catalog along with creating something entirely new and different from what Prurient has previously done, “Frozen Niagara Falls” (in which its journey began to manifest in late 2013 and was finally completed on Valentine’s Day 2015) could very well be recognized as the Prurient magnum opus.
