Regosphere "gutter swarm" cs
Regosphere was a total surprise. I didn't know what to expect but, to be honest, the name kinda through me off. I thought it might be wacky junk noise or even vaguely dancey noise type stuff with a name like that. Now that i know what Regosphere sounds like it makes a lot more sense. Imagine Blue Sabbath Black Cheer meets Josh Lay. Heavy, noisy and dark but with a less doomy sound than BSBC but heavier on the vocals. The vocals on this release pierce and break up both the noise walls and subtle melodies throughout. This release is apparently the second in a trilogy called the "swarm trilogy"; dealing with suicide. It's a serious full length; seven tracks over two sides that show a wide range of audio dynamics. Well worth picking up. Packaged in an oversized box with a full color insert. Beautiful work from Phage Tapes.
