Vatican Shadow - Ornamented Walls


Recommended Posts




"Released to coincide with his first tour of Europe, the album incorporates the live mix rehearsals of ‘Operation Neptune Spear’ with tracks made in their aftermath, recorded straight to tape and mastered by Matt Colton at Air Studios.


“Anyone familiar with Fernow’s live setup will recognise the distinct nature of this material – making use of stems and partial tracks separated into a cassette system which is then relayered and mixed, effected with electronic processing.


“In short – Fernow uses his tape machines like turntables in a mix, weaving a hazy and intuitive narrative of sounds that never quite head in the direction you expect, all imbued with an almost feral attitude that’s exhilarating to witness, their limitations (ever noticed how VS tracks end so abruptly? the tape ran out), and their mechanical machine qualities used to devastating effect.”

Oh wow. I need this one. The rehearsal stuff is really good, a lot more outflexed than some of the previous releases. Kinda rough sometimes, makes a good point to Muzlimgauze.

It's kinda funny, a hard month to afford any musical orders and they let the cat out of the bag. Hope to get a digital, or better, they sell not out fast :biggrin:
