Lock all the doors and walk up the stairs. Turn down the lights and slightly raise the volume. Breathe slowly and try not to wet your pants. The boards creek somewhere in the attic. Lustmord enters the house. With deep moans, low drones, and bass rumbles, the walls begin to ooze evil, and if you stare long enough into the darkness, you'll start to see the path to hell. Like the unspoken dark power of a Ouija board, there is no telling what evil spirits will be called forth, when playing Lustmord's latest album, [ O T H E R ]. Brian Williams is a true pioneer of the dark ambient genre - as dark as they come. Usually referred to as the soundtrack to all your nightmares, Williams has worked on sound design for over 44 film scores, most notable of which include additional compositions for The Crow and Underworld. Lustmord's sound is not just digital effects of haunting echoes - he has actually made field recordings in slaughterhouses, caves and crypts. An interesting album to get your hands on would be a live performance at The Center for Inquiry, recorded on 6/6/6 for the Satanic High Mass celebration of 40th anniversary of The Church of Satan. That album is called Rising. On [ O T H E R ], Adam Jones (Tool) contributes slow solo guitars riffs, with additional appearances by King Buzzo (Melvins) and Aaron Turner (founder of Hydra Head Records and vocalist for the Isis). Speaking of Hydra Head... This is a great American label releasing everything from post-metal, like Pelican and Isis, to drone and doom metal, like Sunn O))) and other heavy metal styles from groups like Cave In, Boris and Jesu. And all joking aside - my dog ran out of the room and was afraid to get back into the studio, standing outside, looking in, until the [ O T H E R ] ended.Read more ›
*edit:Because my review is SOOO mediocre,I'll mention that this is NOT a rock album,there aren't vocals on it,and most people would group it into the "sleepy-time music" catergory.Lustmord's music is mainly comprised of droning effects and background atmosphere,with small hints of other instruments here n there;if you have the Underwold dvd,you can sample lm's work if you listen to the score behind the action.If you have an ear for slight nuances in music this is for you,otherwise you might find youself thinking that it's simply a biiig,loooong,drone.In a nutshell,lm's music is like being alone in a dark place outdoors,under the light of the full moon;or maybe like the soundscape of a nightmare directed by david lynch.
Regardless if it's cold and desolate in your mind or in your zip code, this music adds wonderfully to a sense of ominous woe. The kind of dread where you're not sure where the evil force lurks, but you know it's out there searching for you! Highly recommended!
