Alberich announces follow-up to 2010 endurance test, Quantized Angel, on Hospital Productions, shares track "Unity House"

Dominick Fernow’s beat-oriented Vatican Shadow project has gotten a fair amount of attention over the last eight years; and if Kris Lapke — a.k.a. Alberich — had opted for a similarly-consistent schedule of album releases, we’d probably be talking about joint birthday celebrations regardless of their disparate family trees and (probably) astrological signs!

Lapke has instead used the time subsequent to his Hospital Productions debut establishing an awesome reputation as a mastering engineer of the stars (swallowed by black holes), while fans of the roughly four-hour-long NATO-Uniformen have been dutifully waiting for an equally ambitious follow-up, which rattles by way of overwhelming industrial experience. Somehow, the engineering credits on all of those Prurient albums just hasn’t satisfied those ironic shadow-dwellers.

The upcoming Quantized Angel represents the first true sequel to Alberich’s seriously heavy 2010 debut; and lest one feel disconcerted by the (comparatively) UTTERLY NORMAL length of the track “Unity House” (listenable down below), I recommend repurposing all of those idioms that make claims to the effect that “size matters.” Really: it’s about the “motion of the ocean,” regardless of how long or short the new album turns out to be! Right? Right.

Anyway, pre-orders are here, and the album’s out April 12 on Hospital Productions.
