CORRECTIONS HOUSE have opened up their doors ever so briefly, permitting us entry for a four-minute tour of their haunting abode under the supervision of our guide, Vice/Noisey (Germany), who are streaming “Run Through The Night” at THIS LOCATION.
A mournful tide of bleak instrumentation swollen with angst-ridden acoustic guitar, ceremonial horns and an underlying serration of electronic fuzz which eventually bursts open in to an unfazed and understated procession of black metal and spoken word, “Run Through The Night” is the fourth track from CORRECTIONS HOUSE‘s forthcoming studio album, Last City Zero.
CORRECTIONS HOUSE is the collective musical extractions of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury. The eight-track, near 50-minute Last City Zero was produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, and delivers a wholly cerebral, impossible-to-pinpoint kaleidoscopic synthesis of mechanical decomposition, atmospheric abnormalities, and poetic putrefaction.
Forged unwittingly by the impetuous forces of nature and altered states of consciousness, CORRECTIONS HOUSE is without control of their destiny. Boundless in their genre voyage, they embrace the unkind, the diseased, the forgotten, the morose, their lush anti-soundscrapes and shadowy verses — at once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying — a manifestation of societal ruin and psychological decay.
The transformation of time and space; death begetting life and veils being torn; an imposing dissonance too penetrating to dismiss… CORRECTIONS HOUSE systematically creates and destroys through audio disease and transcendent musical deconstruction.
All things in all ways. There is nothing else.
Last City Zero will be released in North America on October 29, 2013 via Neurot Recordings.
