PRISM SHANKS – “VAST BEAST, PT. 5”

Very excited to share new freeform avante-garde drone / noise / electronics from the limbs and synapses of percussive maestro James Worse (Hand of Stabs / Nurse With Wound) and guitarist John W. Newman (Black Light Brigade). “Vast Beast” is a lurching and menacing follow up to their cassette of the same name out on International Ephemera. Sheets of static drone, the basest semblance of a bass line, waves of noise and a steady hand on minimal percussion lead “Vast Beast” out of the cave and into the light. Never quite reaching the cacophony of other notable duos in this vein – thinking Black Spirituals – “Vast Beast” is a 12 minute slow burn with frequent payoffs until it slow fades back into the dark like spent embers.
