    Been getting into a lot of this stuff recently. Stuff like Wolf Eyes, John Weise, Pharmakon, Puce Mary. For me, the harsher the better. I have only just started dipping my toes into it. And i've given a few older acts a go, in particular Whitehouse.

    Anyone got any other recs?

    My band did shrooms on Tuesday and while deep in it we did an impromptu dark noise set in our practice space that absolutely opened my head lol. Makes me want to look into these genres more now that I maybe understand what I should be listening for

    i'm truly curious the mindset someone gets in when they're like "hey, i'm going to sit down and listen to a full three hours of prurient"

    this isn't meant to be a criticism of prurient's material, more of, well, when someone would want to actually partake in this haha

    yeah like, I like parts of his records but I mean, does the album come with anti-depressants? I feel like I would just be emotionally drained

    I like the fact that this thread exists.

    so I guess you guys stay away from things like books and movies that are not "happy"...

    because you know, you can only do 10 mins of it... or whatevs...

    it is part of the human experience and some people engage with such things

    lol yeah I dont read books

    180 minutes of noise is a lot, don't be dense. I liked Frozen Niagra but it does get grating for me in it's entirety so I can imagine this will be an exhausting listen especially since it seems it won't have any of his melodic/synth/techno tendencies to break it up

    the not happy part has nothing to do with it to me, don't put words in my mouth

    it's music that is harsh, hard to absorb, and intense. what mindsets do you have to be in to have a focused three hours of that? i'm not judging, just genuinely curious

    well this is supposed to be ambient/drone - so not that hard to swallow

    harsh noise is not for everyone and not for any time - I sure as hell need to focus on it and concentrate and that's something that doesn't happen any given day

    you also don't have to consume all of it in a single sitting (as opposed to say books, where you have to live with the thing for a long while)

    so you avoid harsh, hard to absorve and intense art in general? not criticism, just trying to understand

    No, but I don't think I've ever listened to a three hour album regardless of genre. Like I said, I like him and am actually hoping to enjoy this - you're just talking about one of the longest albums in recent memory in the most inaccessible genre I can think of as if it should be an easy pill to swallow. This sort of music definitely has its place or I wouldn't be here, but I think being intimidated by 180 minutes of harsh sonics really has nothing to do with an ability to appreciate difficult or "not happy" art

    yup this

    like, has someone listened to the entire disintegration loops series in one listen? i'm sure they have. but like, you must be one intense music listener if you did that

    Yeah. There's zero chance in fuck I'm absorbing all of that in one sitting.

    @Horrorca have you heard this? don't know if you fuck with techno at all but one of my favorite albums in the genre of the past few years and it definitely partially fits in here
