Where ‘A Disease for the Ages’ and even ‘The Sullen Sulcus’ were roaring, upfront, wall-of-sound albums, the songs on ‘Formless’ rely on a construct of layered tones and subtle dynamic to swell to their inevitable crescendos.
Disc 2 Containing a single track, ‘Transmission’, it shows the band pushing further out into unknown territory. A hypnotic, spiraling delicate guitar motif repeats indefinitely, echoing into the void with a single resonating bass note providing the anchorage as Moore weaves his cryptic, apocalyptic language throughout.
Recorded and mixed in Foel Studios October 2012.
