about

Far from harvesting sweet airs from organs, Soriah’s Ofrendas de Luz a Los Muertos hangs heavily in electrified air like a soul gazing down on its discarded skin. The fusion of noise technician Power Circus into Soriah’s fold slices old bones into a scrimshaw of power electronics. This slowly building monstrosity of sound literally shakes foundations, leaving a wake of rubble that the dead can easily follow. From ‘neath the pulsations echoes up the mournful Tuvan wail of Soriah’s disembodied ghost, leading deceased legions into the light of the living. Sonically devastating, the crushing beauty of “Offerings” approaches operatic quality, that is, if things like MB. Hafler Trio and New Blockaders could ever be considered operatic. A useful beacon for the dead, but sure to also weave the living into their morbid limbo line in search of Soriah’s black sun.
