Drawing influences from industrial, noise, harsh-noise and this time around even psychedelic-drone, the infamous american band Wolf Eyes return with another major release with what is probably their most "rock"-oriented album yet. Even though their more noisy and abrasive aesthetics is not shown on this effort, the group still sounds pretty obscure and austhere on I Am a Problem: Mind in Pieces, with their usual weird, off-kilter production-style and dark themes, despite presenting ... read more
