Where I get hung-up on Frequencies of Woe – and I mean that in a good way – is the starkness throughout. The four pieces on this EP are repetitive to the point where they etch their way into your skull, a constant juggernaut of fuzzy bass tones and looping, industrial synths. There’s a simplicity on the surface that tries to obscure the deep, feral emotional toll these tracks are taking. Louder is better to get the full physicality at play. “An Answering Reiteration” grinds to a slow, methodic pulse while “Wave and Ripple” shakes the ground with a heavy bass snarl. BlakMoth calls this ‘doombient’ and I am all in on that. See you on the altar.
