brantly Another great release, this time the Nadja-meets-Oren Ambarchi atmospherics are nicely supported by blackened drone and an almost structured sense of song arrangement (relatively of course), but the deconstructed eerie shroud of filmic drone that is 'closure' is the highlight of this LP! Favorite track: Closure.

Martin SK Bleak, destructive and full of noise. These anthems makes their way into your head and creates a chaos that you can't grab on to. But once the storm comes to and end there's a lot of clarity to be found. This clears your mind and lets you leave this world.

Immerse yourself in this album, it is truly rewarding. Eric is one of the best in the genre and this album is definitely worth your time. Favorite track: Purgation / Purification.

about

thisquietarmy - Anthems for Catharsis

Anthems for Catharsis marks the follow up to thisquietarmy's last full length studio works "Rebirths", a representative collection of reworked tracks that have defined his purgative live performances. Between back-to-back tours in Europe & Asia and the release of live drone documents as well as collaborative works with Noveller, Aidan Baker/Hypnodrone Ensemble, André Foisy/Locrian, Syndrome/Amenra, thisquietarmy's Eric Quach went back to the drawing board in his Montreal studio, at the end of 2014.

Within the repetitive genre of ambient and drone, thisquietarmy constantly evolves and tries to incorporate new additional textures and structures into the music - for instance, think of the kraut rock shoegaze of "Resurgence", or the post rock doom of "Hex Mountains". However, in other to start fresh and shed skin from exhaustive influences, Quach strips his music down to the black bones. Anthems for Catharsis sounds very focused but also very very dark, not unlike a ritual cleansing or a detoxification. In dismantling his sound, thisquietarmy almost struck a black metal vein, resulting in a dark and brooding ice cold oozing of his signature drones.

TQA Records & Consouling Sounds are delighted to collaborate together to unleash this cold slab of harsh and moody drones. The release also celebrates 10 years of thisquietarmy.

about

thisquietarmy

thisquietarmy is an experimental guitar-based project from Montreal, Canada. Revolving around improvised drone music, he takes his sonic experimentations further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk/shoegaze, krautrock/spacerock & black/doom metal to them. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive & engaging dreamscapes. ... more
