Mirrors For Psychic Warfare, the industrial collaboration between NeurosisScott Kelly and Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker, will release their second chapter of sonic anxiety this Friday September 28th via Neurot Recordings, but is exclusively streaming already right here:

Scott Kelly about the record:

“This record shows the heart of our previous work together in M4PW and Corrections House but the songwriting has evolved immensely in my opinion. Still abstract and still unsettled but the groove is present throughout this record, approach with an open mind and we think this will move you.”

Titled I See What I Became, the follow-up to the duo’s 2016’s self-titled debut is produced by Seward Fairbury (Corrections House) and Negative Soldier, mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) with decibel manipulation by Dave French (Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, The Anunnaki), and comes swathed in the cover art of Thomas Hooper (Neurosis, Harvestman, Boris, Tombs, Doomriders).

It’s been three rough years since Mirrors For Psychic Warfare sprang into existence with their startling self-titled debut, but don’t think for a second that the time was spent idle, this unit constructed an even more unnerving and destructive record with I See What I Became. I know; hard to believe.

Over the course of these eight bile-rich pieces, a sonic abattoir is erected, exploited, and razed. Turbulence rises and churns giving way to rhythmic machinations, lights flicker, a grand mal/guignol seizure besets a frog-headed snitch, blood collects in a stainless-steel gutter. Claustrophobic sudor that evokes all you held dear from Skinny Puppy, Foetus, Godflesh, bath tub tina, and wondering where you will sleep, provided you ever do. There’s nothing fun here; nothing but the cold of an autopsy followed by the heat of a crematorium. A sliver of galvanised bone flies from a circular saw into the toothless maw of a streetwalking Kali Yuga. Good or bad, I’m not sure what we did to deserve this. [words by Aesop Dekker]
