The music of Ben Frost is about contrast; influenced as much by Classical Minimalism as by Punk Rock and Metal, Frosts throbbing guitar-based textures emerge from nothing and slowly coalesce into huge, forbidding forms that often eschew conventional structures in favor of the inevitable unfoldings of vast mechanical systems. The Australia-born, Iceland-based composer has written scores for dance companies, soundtracked films, and collaborated with visual artists and poets with his most recent work being the soundtrack to Pivot/Sky Atlantics television series Fortitude.

Recorded with legendary producer and engineer Steve Albini (Big Black, Shellac, Nirvana, Pixies, The Breeders), this EP is the first new music from Frost since the release of 2014s A U R O R A, an album that received wide acclaim and was listed by many publications as one of the best albums of that year.

The music on this EP is able to maintain a sense of spaciousness amid the feedback. Its like walking over crystalline plains and suddenly falling into a pit. This is music that makes your innards move, hiss, and shake.
