Just Announced: The Blackened Music Series presents Shrinebuilder
ON SALE NOW
"So it was that the calling was answered as simply as a phone call could have been and was made. Cisneros called Weinrich, Kelly, and later Crover and decided, in full-blown ex nihilo fashion to make some music beyond the summed parts of all what had been done before and in doing so rediscover why it had been done in the first place. Beyond the parts, beyond beyond, and here descriptors that you will read every OTHER place but that go without saying here...crushing, killing and heavy, heavy, heavy...seem somehow too much and not enough.
It is Wagnerian. It is Iommic. It is simply: SHRINEBUILDER.
Now Manson [Charles, not Marilyn] once said to us, "there are only two ways to get to the cross...you get dragged...or you go along."
And here, in the spirit of the contrary, is a third: SHRINEBUILDER.
You're goddamned right." (from Eugene S. Robinson)
