Pretty sure this is a new Swans LP.

Easily one of the most relentless sonic experiences you'll have this year.

3.5 greatHeavyMetalSnail | April 27th 14

This album is an exercise in exactly how noisy you can make a song while still making it music. White Suns deliver blistering, chaotic songs that sound well put together while at the same time completely messy and broken. However, they are not all about one song and delve into nightmarish, downtempo noise collages that keep things fresh and interesting. This music is not for the feint of ears, as it can produce an almost trance like effect as every single bit of cacophony rages on. But for those willing to listen, it can be a rewarding experience.

4.5 superbBrendan M. | June 13th 14

This is one of the most challenging albums I've heard all year by far. I have no idea how to describe it, it's so twisted, atonal, and just plain noisy, but it creates such a dense atmosphere that I haven't quite felt or heard since early Swans. While the instrumentation will sometimes sound out of sync with one another, it's clear that this was intended, since it creates a really chaotic feeling. Basically, imagine if you combined the first Swans record with their song Coward, it might sound like this. Sudden walls of noise, lots of feedback and creepy soft parts, and even being somewhat painful to listen to at first, this is what you get. Despite their similarity to Swans that I keep bringing up though, there also seems to be some Slint influence, as well as an overall modernized sound. Simply put, Filth: 2014 edition.

Good for what it is, but I wish this album was a bit more focused. Moments like the beginning of the opening track are brilliant but there aren't enough of them. r
