RONIN KILGANNON Dominick Fernow always make it difficult for us to digest his music, ALL ARE WHICH GOOD THINGS! Then, you add the mysterious Kris Lapke (Alberich) and Patrick O’Neal from Skin Crimes into the fray, then it goes from difficult to sheer, unapologetic cruelty. UNKNOWNS continues where RAINBOW MIRROR leaves off in that death is only the beginning! UNKNOWNS is somewhere between radioactive electronics meets spoken word violence meets lurking noise hell bent on crushing us to a bloody pulp! Favorite track: In The Ashes Of Science We Fall.

Originally released as a bonus cassette to Prurient’s ‘Rainbow Mirror’ ‘Unknowns’ is two side long collaborative tracks from Dominick Fernow joined by longtime producer Kris Lapke from Alberich with Patrick O’Neal from Skin Crime notoriety. HMO was the earliest project from O’Neal starting in the late 80s and early 90s that could be a rural american counterpart to England’s Nurse With Wound middle period. Consisting of unrecognizable, discomforting electric acoustic noises mixed with radiation noise, Prurient fills the void with sub bass electronics and a caustic reading of the ‘Rainbow Mirror’ short story written in collaboration with Scott Bryan Wilson. A vocal counterpart to the otherwise instrumental ‘Rainbow Mirror’ album. the B side is a reworking of field recordings and woodland screams recording in Rhode Island and reworked in NYC around the time O’Neal and Fernow first met. Housed in a deluxe sleeve with manual artwork by visual artist Adam Marnie, whose works have been featured previously on Prurient’s epic ‘Frozen Niagara Falls’.
