Mamiffer - The World Unseen Album Review
Magik and mystery from darkly experimental Seattle duo.
Don’t be put off by Mamiffer’s tag of ‘experimental metal’ – think how far Anathema and Alcest are from their death metal roots.
Comprising Isis guitarist/singer Aaron Turner and his artist-musician wife Faith Coloccia, the duo relish the dark side, and that is their historical substratum. But built upon that is nearly a decade of musical shapeshifting resting on a triumvirate of ghostly piano, tolling guitar and Coloccia’s angelic voice. The World Unseen brings shadowy exercises to life via tape loops, banks of effects and otherworldly oscillations.
