“…nuanced and dark, touching upon peaceful moments at one end and flying into a manic rage at the other.” — Noisey

Broken Limbs Excite No Pity, LAMONT’s second solo album, was tracked in Chicago’s Minbal Studios with Sanford Parker behind the board. It’s a one-man show like its predecessor, Feral Songs For The Epic Decline — LAMONT sings, harmonizing mournfully with himself, and plays saxophone, guitar, percussion, and electronics. At its base, music is sound (noise, if you like) organized into patterns. And those sounds/noises don’t have to be pretty ones, as long as the patterns are compelling. With his latest studio offering, LAMONT demonstrates an ability to create hypnotic, ominous, emotionally resonant, and even somehow transcendent arrangements of patterned sound. These aren’t “songs” like you hear on the radio. They’re literally sound art. This is an album you dunk your head in like a bucket of ice water, and when you pull it back out, you’re not the same person you were before.
Catch BRUCE LAMONT live in the coming weeks with future performances to be announced soon.

“This isn’t an album that ever expects to get radio play; it is an adventure through the high plains, and our drifter is pursued by the stuff of nightmares. Rather than a collection of songs, Broken Limbs Excite No Pity is musical odyssey that ranges from eerie and desolate to unhinged and cacophonous, with a low key, cool interlude and a melancholy, reflective conclusion. It is truly a unique listening experience that inhabits the less frequented genres of avant garde metal and experimental jazz.” — Indy Metal Vault
