After a series of releases marking reinvention and his furthest reaches into sonic exploration, Washed Against the Rocks is a tour de force, a return to form, a work that recalls the most balanced yet visceral moments of classic Prurient, the material for which stems from a time of great personal hardship. This is the snapshot of an intimate catharsis that demands the reverence of those willing to experience it. The latest in the Handmade Birds Dark Icons. Runtime 10:21, Mastered by Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia).
