Review: Hospital Recordings boss Dominick Fernow returns to his uncompromising Prurient alias, adding yet another chapter to an enormous body of existing work. Like the first Prurient live performance 20 years earlier, the 'Rainbow Mirror' lineup consisted of three members - Fernow called upon Matt Folden (Dual Action) and Jim Mroz (Lussuria) to form the trio for this ambitious work. There will be familiar sounds from previous moments in Fernow's discography - piercing and textural guitar feedback much like 'Arrowhead' on Editions Mego back in 2008, chilling glacial drone pieces, moments of unadulterated noise abrasions and interludes of deconstructed industrial music often - accompanied by his guttural or shrieking vocal performances. All of the material was recorded live in the studio and later meticulously mixed and produced by Shifted aka Alexander Lewis (Avian) at his studio in Berlin, with expert mastering by Paul Corley.
Review: Dominic Fernow dons his Prurient hat for this split release with Karl O'Connor as Ugandan Methods. As you might expect, it's not for the light-hearted; "Call 1" features the Downwards boss' dense, grainy broken beats mixed with Fernow's wounded screeches amid bursts of white noise. "Call 2" is built on a similar approach, but this time the churning noise and dense drums are interspersed with dramatic, dark synths that spiral and twist. The third "Call" provides a surprise, heading back to the loopy techno of early Downwards, but it's only a temporary deviation and the fourth and final "Call" sees the duo deliver a drum-led, droning rhythm.

Review: This time Dominick Fernow takes the form of his Prurient guise, a project restricted to Fernow's considerably noisier frame of mind but one that still manages to evoke boundless emotion. As you would imagine from the title, "You Weren't Worth The Paper You Were Printed On (The Sun)" is ripe with anger and brimming with energy - a ten minute grind of furious drones and rising vocals form the depths of those booming noises. "They Found You Shattered On The Concrete (The Moon)" is no less menacing but Fernow moulds and rearranges the shapes of the oscillator waves to the point of total abstraction and rage, whereas "Two Golden Stick Webs (The Day)" takes a more hollow approach, fusing mounds of delays and effects with crumbling voices and metallic screeches. Last but not least, "Annihilation Of The Vagina (The Night)" upsets and disrupts with no hesitation thanks to its subdued screams dropping effortlessly into heavy, noisy drones built for the brave-hearted - it's noise at its purest form: honest, brutal and provocative.
