ALL REFLECTIONS DRAINED: XASTHUR IS CERTAINLY NOT WORKING ON HIS TAN THIS SUMMER
The great part is that all this attention has sent Xasthur in a frenzied retreat back underground with All Reflections Drained. I will wager that few hipsters will have the fortitude to get past the initial harmonized dissonance of the aptly titled opener “Dirge Forsaken” even if it’s on limited cassette edition (yeah you read that right). The rest of the album continues to shock and shows again just how far he’s come from his original Burzum aping all those years ago. Droning ambiance leading into ugly guitar harmonies with spooky whispering and sublimated wailing all layered to the basement and back.
