Skullflower - IIIrd Gatekeeper(1992)

Ok,this one is TxusMx's Album of the week.I'm posting it on his behalf since he hasn't got the blog rights yet.




Skullflower is the long running project of Matthew Bower, but in its initial incarnation the band did have other members and was a bit more "rock oriented" than the cacophonous oppression of sound and noise that Skullflower is today with Bower as the (pretty much) sole member and driving force. IIIrd Gatekeeper is a re-release of the extremely difficult to find third record from this seminal band from when it actually was a collaborative group of individuals; this album is also considered a touchstone album from the band's early years that has a lasting effect on the current noise and drone scenes. IIIrd Gatekeeper is an ear opening experience as one can hear where many of the current crop of drone and noise groups find inspiration from, if you like both of these genres you should definitely check this one.
