the pious pretense that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing.‘
with his new album ‚blood will rain‘ thomas garrison a.k.a. control presents a release which is a status report of a journey into an artist’s saturnine inner self. the sound shows a slight shift in direction from control’s power electronics basics towards death industrial whereat deep, dark soundscapes play a decisive foundational role. enduring pulses of apparent and sometimes concealed rhythms overlaid with resonant metallic drones and tortured voice treatments evoke a dramatic atmosphere of maleficant trance. an electronically generated ritual music caused by the combination of hypnotic, cavernous and perpetual aggressive elements.
this most sable release in control’s history is a soundtrack for incantations of many kinds: chaos, suffering, enlightenment. able to establish fraternal bonds between artist and listener, ‚blood will rain‘ might be used to open up as yet closed, or even hidden doors. be prepared.
