The Flail (guitars, vocals, effects, synthesizers) and the Wrathe (synthesizers, vocals, oscillators, samples) - Outer Gods' two anonymous members - return with another scorched torrent of soot and static, following March's Beneath the Marred and Blackened Hand cassette. Light Dims Eternal, the group's latest offering on Domestic Genocide, continues the duo's mirth and amplifier worship, extending the scope from three long-form tracks to a comfortably desolate five. Each piece perpetuates a world of pure feedback, as sustained dread pours out of maxed-out amps in guttural heaves, exorcising the demons from within. Set to release on July 30, Light Dims Eternal sets Outer Gods apart from various doom, ambient, and noise acts operating in Atlanta as the front-runner of noirish, power electronics.
Opener "Future Decay" suggests the scope of Outer Gods' new approach, meditating on seething anxiety and impending doom. Undulating between two chords with frayed edges, the duo reduces its melodic assault to primal resonance. Hosting the album's only sense of true rhythm, "Beyond the Crimson Gate" marches on in a spiteful procession. The solemn sonics survey a ravaged landscape of desertion, tossing in fragments of spoken dialogue and found sounds. The track dissolves into an introspective guitar line that opens "Blessed Be the Host of Sorrow," a vaguely post-rock movement of squalling static and meditative texture. Album closer "From Behind The Walls, She Heard a Voice Like an Angel" wallows in a 20-minute dirge that focuses the various approaches of each prior track. Feedback and distortion unfurls for minutes on end, reveling in its sinister sprawl.
