Keenan Johnston For my money the best Brown Angel release. If there's one constant on this album it's the staggeringly heavy, sludgy bass; whether it's the occasional clean vocals, bitter shouts or screeching guitar feedback and harsh noise, it's always there to saturate the low-end. With that said this is quite a diverse release, ranging from more palatable post-punk styled sections to heavy drones and noise rock mania. Definitely worth a look for fans of 90's UK industrial. Favorite track: You Can Find Heartbreak Anywhere.

about

Brown Angel's second and final LP sounds a shrill and punishing death knell for the trio (NOTE: Brown Angel has been reactivated as of May 2013). The band places a greater emphasis on what trace amounts of melody existed on the 2010 debut - to that end harnessing (but never fully reigning in) key components drawn from early industrial music as well as 90s death metal and grindcore.

Over seven tracks, sparse and somber rhythms buoy a cyclonic roar of guitar, feedback and electronic noise atop a bed of distorted, weapon-grade dub bass. But where Brown Angel "s/t" sustained a howling crescendo, "Agonal Harvest" diversifies, offering droning, mournfully sung hymns to dejection and loss, unearthing fossils of 90s breakbeat and churning post-punk elements.

Each LP is packaged with a bonus CD version that contains this as well as the Brown Angel "s/t" album meticulously mastered for digital consumption.

AQUARIUS RECORDS, SAN FRANCISCO:
"...epic and darkly melodic chunk of churning low-end heaviness[...]Sad that this is the last we'll hear from these guys, but like we said, we couldn't have hoped for a better final missive."
