Terence Hannum: Burning Impurities


Front photograph by Jóhannes Gunnar Þorsteinsson

Terence Hannum, one third of avant drone metal outfit Locrian, never fails to conjure forth an otherworldly power, whether it be through his visual work or his auditory excursions.

»Burning Impurities« offer two side long purgative torrents of white noise bliss. Meditative but by no means serene, this work stands as an enigmatic sonic ritual, a distant memory of the sound of the ur kaos and another fine entry in the ever-growing canon of Hannum.
