SUMAC – Love In Shadow (2LP+MP3)

Image: 1620554 SUMAC - guitarist and vocalist Aaron Turner (Old Man Gloom, Mamiffer,
ISIS), drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists, Erosion), and bassist Brian Cook
(Russian Circles, Botch) - delivers their third full length album, Love in
Shadow, a brutalizing dive into love and all its raw emotions. The album
was recorded live in a single room at Robert Lang Studios (Nirvana, Foo
Fighters) in Washington by Kurt Ballou (Converge), who later mixed the
album at his own studio GodCity.
The album ?ows with the continued momentum from their acclaimed
collaborative release with with legendary Japanese artist Keiji Haino
(Fushitsusha, Painkiller) earlier this year American Dollar Bill - Keep
Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On, incorporating
more freeform abstraction into their raw, bombastic, and jagged sound. The
intense exploration of tension and chaos is mirrored in Turner’s striking
visual art for the album, where strands of frayed ink and hints of color
coalesce into a swamp-like form both elaborately disorienting and minutely
structured in its packaging.
Each member of SUMAC has remained prolifc within their own right, with
Turner continuing to release albums with a myriad of projects and through
his own imprint SIGE, Yacyshyn recently releasing new music with Baptists
as well as scoring a horror flm soundtrack, and Cook consistently touring
the world, sharing the stage with bands like Mastodon, Chelsea Wolfe, and
many more.
Love can be ugly. But at its core, it’s alive, unpredictable, and volatile. On
Love In Shadow, SUMAC captures that passion in the most primal and
unfettered manner possible.
