Two tracks. An hour and ten minutes. An impenetrable wall of ambient noise, droning doom and harsh blackened soundscapes. This is what’s offered up on the latest album from Sheffield outfit Bogwych, On The Wind Is All That Is Left. Only Roots Remain. It is a massive, ambitious undertaking that isn’t for the feint of heart, but one that’s uniquely rewarding when given the time it requires to seep into your ears and warp your mind.
Today, having been taken on a journey by this incredibly overwhelming experience, Astral Noize is thrilled to bring you an exclusive stream of the release before it drops on Friday through the ever-reliable bastion of underground noise that is Trepanation Recordings. Check it out below, and be sure to pick up the cassette on Bandcamp.
On The Wind Is All That Is Left. Only Roots Remain. is out 31st January on Trepanation Recordings. Purchase here.
