Prog Reviewer
4 stars This debut album from Current 93 takes the early experiments in ritual ambient suggested on the LAShTAL EP and extends them into two horrifying side-long pieces. Some subsequent reissues clutter the album up with bonus tracks from various auxiliary releases, but let's make no mistake - it's the two epic numbers which truly make this album the groundbreaking work of horror-ambient that it is.

Mingling influences ranging from Crowley's Thelemic occult system to The Exorcist to the Comte de Lautréamont's sinister meditation Les Chants de Maldoror to David Tibet's highly personal take on mystical Christianity, it's a nightmare journey through the back alleys of culture with a musical backing heavily influenced by the work of Nurse With Wound (whose principle contributors appear here) but lent a particular cohesiveness thanks to David Tibet's singular musical vision.

Warthur | 4/5 |
