Joseph G. Picking a favorite track for this album was a bit difficult. I wound up choosing Mechanism since it's the longest track on the album and I simply didn't want it to end. Viewing the album as a vehicle it appears to run out of fuel near the end yet you wouldn't know it if you've got it on repeat, I did my first complete listen through. It wasn't until track 3 - Sidhe (featuring Esker) that I stopped and checked my music player. That's not to say that the songs are too similar. I was transfixed. Favorite track: Mechanism.

about

Swarm Intelligence drops eleven monumental tracks on Acre Recordings. ‘Black Iron Prison’ is pitch black stuff: foreboding and forbidding work, showcasing a more mechanistic, abrasive and brilliantly tense sound. The tracks span industrial rhythmic noise, searing electronic ambiences, half-step technoid rhythms and pounding 4/4 beats, all suffused with an anxiety and the sense of sinister things to come. Whilst fearsomely heavy, this is nevertheless a hauntingly nuanced unification of textured and rich ambiences with bitter, visceral beats. If darkness can coruscate then this outstanding release does just that.
