Prurient Frozen Niagra Falls on Limited Edition 180g 3LP
America’s most prominent noise figure, Dominick Fernow has for the better part of two decades helped shape and reinvent the genre with a stream of works under the Prurient moniker. A project unlike any other in the realms of experimental, ambient and noise, Prurient continually mutates from one incarnation to the next.
Fernow often treads a fine line between harsh noise extremity and atmospheric beauty - his massive, layered walls of sound may be comprised of piercing feedback, tortured vocals and machine-like industrial pounding, or incorporate meticulous sampling, entrancing beats and waves of electronica - yet his prolific output is never less than compelling.
Prurient’s first full-length since the 2011 game-changer Bermuda Drain sees Fernow deliver the project’s most ambitious release to date. A sprawling album clocking in at just under 90 minutes, Frozen Niagara Falls is the result of over a year of work. It is without a doubt Prurient’s magnum opus, and will solidify the artist’s standing as a visionary master able to break down barriers between genres while creating something entirely new and different.
