Black Mass: Neues Album: IN FERNEAUX

Hatte mich schon gefragt warum Benjamin Power aka Blanck Mass eigentlich noch keinen musikalischen Kommentar zum Katastrophenjahr 2020 vermeldet hat. Nun vielleicht dachte er sich, er kann ja auch das Folgejahr vertonen. 😂


Auf jeden Fall erscheint die neue Platte meines Lieblings-Apokalyptikers namens ‚In Ferneaux‘ am 26. Februar. Genug Chaos serviert schon die erste Single, bin gespannt.

At first listen, In Ferneaux is an uncharacteristic release from Benjamin Power aka Blanck Mass. Where the producer has mostly dealt in world-crushing electro-industrial drones and grizzled hardware experiments — evident from the offset with the three albums of scorched progressive electronics he crafted as part of Fuck Buttons — Power’s Blanck Mass moniker always seems to have hosted some of his more personal exploratory output. Made in the midst of a pandemic year, In Ferneaux — which Power patches together from a decade-strong pool of globe-trotted field recordings — can’t help but feel sentimental for a far-flung age of movement and flux.
