Solo Debut Album of Sanford Parker.
Anyone who has lowered their ear into the chasm of sound between metal and industrial in the last ten to fifteen years will most likely have come into contact with Parkerís work. Perhaps through the bands and projects in which he is or has been involved as a musician:
the doom-prophesying powerhouse Buried At Sea, the extreme-sound fraternization
Corrections House, the doom/post-metal shamans Minsk, the black-metal junkies Nachtmystium, etc. Or maybe via the sheer volume of the releases to which he skilfully brought his very own toxic sound as a producer or sound technician.
In this capacity, the name-dropping begins with Pelican, Eyehategod, Rwake, and Voivodand carries on far beyond YOB, Lair Of The Minotaur, and Woven Hand. In many cases (Minsk, Nachtmystium, Corrections House, Twilight, YOB, Blood Ceremony), he even combined the two areas of activity in an interdisciplinary radicalization of sound both through the amps and behind the mixing desk.
In a way, this material is the translation of doom into the methods of electronic music. A concept work of cross-genre, dystopian music that builds on the loops and sequencer
programs of industrial, but shuns purely linear song structures in favor of instrumental storytelling, the development of which expands a track into an entire world of sound. Nevertheless, Lash Back imposes itself on the contemporary extreme music scene like the black monolith in Kubrickís Space Odyssey ñ unassailable, incomparable, and perfect in form.
