COLLINS, WILLIAM FOWLER - PERDITION HILL RADIO (2LP)


"Like Earth's seminal 'Hex' before it, 'Perdition Hill Radio', his second full-length, invokes the ghosts of a lost America and drags the rotting carcass of country music through a swamp of noise and drone. With a love of both experimental ambient music and ear-splitting black metal, Collins has arrived upon a grim hybrid of both. Black ambient might be the best description as this is neither one nor the other, inhabiting a lonely space in-between. The chugging, blown out treble and isolated darkness of Xasthur is all present and correct, but there are also echoes of William Basinski and Deaf Center hidden amongst the clouds of radio static. These rare cracks of beauty are what make 'Perdition Hill Radio' such an arresting listening experience, and what sets it apart from so much that has come before.There is a shadowy link between the compositions of William Fowler Collins and fellow Type artists Svarte Greiner and Xela; all three share a similar fascination with the darker side of the ambient spectrum.
