Bassist Dana Schechter (Bee and Flower, Angels of Light) delivers a powerful debut full-length as Insect Ark, her one-woman experimental doom project.
Portal/Well resides in the mysterious caverns of unknown blackness. Propelled by slow, plodding beats, sinister atmospheres unfold from a sonic tapestry of anguish and dismay, creating ethereal nightmares of visceral discomfort. Bass notes ring in apathy to pained lap-steel wails as haunting synthesizers groan within a dense fog of forbidden noise. It’s the perfect antidote to a warm, sunny day of love, laughter and the feeling of contentment as the sun goes down before demons emerge to play in the darkness.
With Insect Ark, we can remember the primordial fear that plagued our primitive ancestors in the deepest night just to remember the sanctity of the light. Step into unknown terror, but pray you find your way back.
