Now available on vinyl for the first time, following on from an excellent LP for Blackest Ever Black and a 12" for Bed of Nails. The project has become one of DOMINICK FERNOW’s ominick most intriguing, offering an artificial, unnerving take on both ambient and more propulsive electronic music, in turns reminding us of everything from Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Vol. II to John Carpenter, Vangelis' Blade Runner soundtrack, Leyland Kirby, classic Chain Reaction, Demdike Stare and, of course, Fernow's own myriad productions under various aliases (PRURIENT, VATICAN SHADOW, etc.). For the most part, the project has been an experiment in tonal dread and dankest atmospheres, but on Folklore Venom rhythms play a more prominent role, pacing anxiously below the dense murk of "Upside Down Left Eye," or as a stodgy techno bedrock to the inclement conditions of "The Spirit Wore the Shoes of the Boy," or a sputtering, diesel-powered chug to the noxious vibes of "Black Magic Originated in Nature." Factor the petrifying gloom of "Spirit Companion Sick-Bed" and the unheimlich, exotic sonic ciphers of "Malaysia Yellow Herbs," and you have one of the strongest releases on Hospital Productions yet.
