Reviver/Aghori – Split C30

Existential Cloth Recordings

Here’s a quick split tape with cool psychedelic artwork. Reviver does his usual thing utilizing low dirgy drones but it has less of a death industrial vibe and more of a dark ambient vibe surprisingly. It’s just not as aggressive as usual.

I didn’t know what to expect from Aghori, but we have some sounds matching Reviver’s style. Although it says on the tape that side B consists of only one track entitled The Same Path Twice the side is broken up into three tracks. The first is a soothing ambient/drone piece, and the second is a booming minimalistic death industrial piece. The last is more airy and spacious, yet still plodding and slightly creepy.

Both artists use minimalism and simplicity to form a thick core at the center of their compositions. It’s a good match up and one that will appear to fans of more raw lo-fi electronics.
