Gnod: Mirror (Rocket Recordings, 2016)October 30, 2016 at 2:25 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
Gnod are one of the better improv psych acts around. They’re also one of the more unpredictable, switching between folk, drone, noise, Krautrock, etc. at any given moment. This one’s dark, paranoid, heavy, angry, and doomy. There’s shades of early PiL and Swans in here. There’s screaming and subliminal voices. “Sodom & Gomorrah” is an 18-minute crawl down the abyss. The packaging is an actual mirror, so you can stare deep into what’s left of your soul.
