Culver – Prophecy of the Black Spider [CS]

7.00

Label: Mantile

Year: 2014

Format: Cassette

Culver exercise some admirable restraint to great effect here with two impressionistic streams of ominous gloom. The first side of The Prophecy of the Black Spider is consumed with what sounds like an endless flow of rubble, a rush of billowing flames, or having one’s head shoved out the window of a vehicle speeding down a dirt road. The unrelenting debris evolves into the image of a ship coming into a harbor, ignoring the echoes of a cautionary foghorn; thousand-yard stare, hypnotized by the surrounding maelstrom. After the break, droning strings are pushed to the forefront with an urgent, dark magnetism—as if from a mind’s eye perspective of the tumultuous scene we saw previously. Two trancelike views of something from which no good can come. Have at it.
