artist: Josh Lay
title: True Mask
It’s hard to believe that this is the first Josh Lay release to find its way to the compact disc format. Fittingly, Josh considers this to be his best work to date, and I can’t say I disagree. This is a four track, nearly 40 minute meditation on the masks people wear to make their way in the world. Elements of black metal, harsh noise, power electronics and dark ambient combine to create a dark, twisted environment built from electronics, guitar, and some of the most guttural vocals I’ve heard him spew. the accompanying art was hand-made by the artist. Edition of 200 copies packaged in jewel cases with 4-panel inserts and double sided jewel cases.
