Blog alone for a few days.
This is Swans debut and one of the most "heavy" if not the most heavy one, in this first release Swans featured Norman Westberg for the first time Michael Gira obviously and two drummers, Jarboe was not yet in the band. The consequences of that and given that Gira was not yet using the whole folky stuff he later used never to let go completely (at least till this point) is a no wavy, noisy and repetitive as fuck release. Gira's vocals are far from melodic. For Swans fans or noisy stuff fans this might be a masterpiece for the others only a listen will tell.
