***REISSUED ON VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME!!! Coming just months after Dread (WOLF EYES' first LP as a trio), Slicer was released on cassette in an edition of 50 in 2001. From start to finish, it’s a full­fledged sonic experience, downright enveloping. Deep stuttering bass, high streams of electronics, rugged tape manipulation, horns, glass ­ this recording contains an enormous spectrum of sound. Mastering legend JOHN GOLDEN, who cut the lacquer for vinyl, said it was like cutting a sonic obstacle course. That’s not to say Slicer is a record that you’ll play once and file away. The OLSON, YOUNG and DILLOWAY lineup, which lasted just 5 years, shows unusual restraint here. The calm intensity of their wildly bizarre sonic experiments and masterful compositional moves make for a rewarding repeat listen. This is deeply ambitious music made without academic pretensions. It contains some of the most minimal programming in their catalog and the editing and mastering are nothing short of inspired. Setting an impossibly high water mark early on as the noise scene was just getting to it’s feet, few, if any, have come close to the energy and power of this recording since.
