Tim Hecker: Ravedeath, 1972 (CD, Kranky, February 2011)

Within seconds of starting, Tim Hecker has turned it up to 11. You should turn it up, too: this assault of awesomely crunchy drone demands to be played loudly. (I hope the neighbours don't mind — if they do, they might be too scared to complain.) It roars, it pulses, it stutters. I kind of feel like it exists outside of time, it's one of those records which is too huge to admit a beginning or an end. (Does that mean that the listener is briefly immortal?) Brilliantly, it prominently features a church organ. Rave on.

I bought this from Boomkat. They call it Dark Ambient / Drone / Metal.
