In celebration of its official release, Decibel Magazine hurls forth Drone Maintenance, the cathartic new long player from one-man progressive drone project, BLACKWOLFGOAT, in its entirety!
Conjured by guitarist Darryl Shepard (Black Pyramid, The Scimitar, Hackman, Milligram, Roadsaw), who specializes in looped guitar movements, building and layering upon each other to create compositions of dense distortion and delicate lines, psychedelic guitar freak-outs as well as purely ambient pieces, Drone Maintenance is a psychological voyage through space and time.
Engineered and mixed by Glenn Smith (Tired Old Bones Ehnahre, Ichabod et al) at his Amps vs. Ohms studios in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the ten-track Drone Maintenance is a quasi-concept album that sends Shepard into the future as a drone repairman, fixing and servicing rogue drones. Elaborates Shepard, “On Drone Maintenance humans maintain drones which could turn on them at any moment. The soundtrack to this trip is a mixture of drone, Krautrock, doom, fusion and psych. Needless to say, it does not end well for our protagonist.”
Adds Decibel Magazine, “A mesmerizing mix of psychedelia, drone, and general experimentalism, Drone Maintenance takes the listener on a journey, its deliberate repetition bringing about an almost hypnotic state similar to Six Organs of Admittance or Ash Ra Tempel. Unlike most drone, things actually happen in these songs!”
