MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE is the latest collaboration between Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker. The band’s unsettling, soon-to-be-issued self-titled debut is the sonic manifestation of insomnia, complete with the tossing, turning, and perennial dread that comes with facing another shabby daylight.
The five songs that compirse Mirrors For Psychic Warfare lurch and pulsate across a sullen, desolate landscape with an almost curious obsessiveness. And while Mirrors For Psychic Warfare may remind some of the best work on the classic Cold Meat Industry label, there is enough familiar Kelly/Parker-isms scattered throughout to keep the album stimulating. It is a work with more in common with a fever or a fitful wraith than a record.
In advance of its release tomorrow, April 22nd, 2016 via Neurot Recordings, Revolver Magazine offers up the record in all its disquieting glory at THIS LOCATION.

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare was realized and recorded by both Kelly and Parker at Actual 13 Studio and Hypercube respectively over the course of 2015. The record was mixed and mastered by Parker and will come available in CD and vinyl form. This is not the first occasion where Kelly and Parker have joined forces. The two work together in Corrections House, a project that also features the talents of Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, and Bruce Lamont of Yakuza, and where Corrections House seem hell-bent on impersonal bludgeon and unrestrained panic, the pair’s latest project — MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE — is far more restrained.
