America's most prominent noise figure, Dominick Fernow
has for the better part of two decades helped shape and reinvent
the genre with a stream of works under the Prurient
moniker. A project unlike any other in the realms of experimental,
ambient and noise, Prurient continually mutates
from one incarnation to the next. Fernow often treads a
fine line between harsh noise extremity and atmospheric
beauty-his massive, layered walls of sound may be comprised
of piercing feedback, tortured vocals and machinelike
industrial pounding, or incorporate meticulous sampling,
entrancing beats and waves of electronica-yet his
prolific output is never less than compelling.
Prurient's first full-length since the 2011 game-changer
Bermuda Drain sees Fernow deliver the project's most
ambitious release to date. A sprawling album clocking
in at just under 90 minutes, Frozen Niagara Falls is the
result of over a year of work. It is without a doubt Prurient's
magnum opus, and will solidify the artist's standing
as a visionary master able to break down barriers between
genres while creating something entirely new and different
