Six Organs Of Admittance – “Taken By Ascent”
Taking a break from two albums of Hexadic improvisations (Chasny’s own system of complex chaos), Six Organs is back to its smoke and smolder roots with a new album, Burning The Threshold, due out next year. The first taste comes in the form of the ominous album centerpiece “Taken By Ascent,” a rolling bit of murderous blues that seems to hearken back to Chasny’s best guitar work, while adding a whiff of prog’s smoke rings via the synths provided by Cooper Crain (Bitchin’ Bajas, Cave). The support staff on this one seems to be cherry picking from some great complimentary sources, alongside Crain, Haley Fohr (Circuit Des Yeux) joins for some backup vocals and longtime collaborator Chris Corsano is back on drums. While I loved the Hexadic experiments, its awesome to hear Chasny storming down his own brand of psychedelic stringwork on this one. Any year that’s got a Six Organs release on the way is looking up.
