Once again, the one-man drone machine thisquietarmy from
Montreal (Canada) teams up with another sonically different experimental
post-rock band Labirinto from Sao Paulo (Brazil). They both met and played
together in Montreal when Labirinto was touring in North America (early
2012). While Labirinto & thisquietarmy are from different hemispheres,
they both have a mutual admiration for each other's sound and work ethics,
as well as their shared influences of textured sounds such ambient,
psychedelic, post-rock & black metal. Furthermore, their common
perspective of the world have bound them to create a record inspired by
cultural & social values, political situations and universal phenomenons.
As an ambitious 7-piece band, Labirinto's instrumentation includes a
combination of orchestral guitar riffs, synthesizers, bass, cello, drums &
percussion. Their critically acclaimed 2010 debut album "Anatema" was by
mixed Greg Norman (Pelican, Russian Circles) - this time, they asked Tony
Doogan (Mogwai) to mix the tracks for this split record. As for
thisquietarmy, he showcases the different sides of his staple drone
buildups & dark ambient soundscapes.
Official release date: June 11th.
