It’s the culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I’ve ever made, been involved in or imagined. But it’s unfinished, like the songs themselves. It’s one frame in a reel. The frames blur, blend and will eventually fade

Swans - The Seer is not an easy listen. This is one of the few albums I have heard that has genuinely terrified me to uncontrollable tears. The diverse arrangement of tracks paints a really grim and open story. There is a lot of interpretation to be had with this album. Simply laying back and letting it consume me, I saw the story of this Seer as a physical man becoming a monster. The ending solidified this to me and it sent. The Seer is Swans' twelfth studio album and here they continue their well-established Post-Rock sound at their most refined and ominous. Patience is a required trait needed for appreciating a Swans record; something I, unfortunately, don't always have-but The Seer's apocalyptic soundscape is unquestionably worth the time investment.
Return of the seer sucks but the seer returns is probably the best track on the album tbh. Connor Olson13 ngày trước. I think I am just in a tiny bit in love.
Swans are a band that conjure primal forms of power. Their second studio album since re-forming is among the group's longest and it manages to expand on their sound while simultaneously summarizing everything they've recorded before. Swans are a band that conjure primal forms of power: thunder and lightning, fire and brimstone, master over slave, predator over prey. Their earliest albums came out in the wake of New York's no wave scene, a loose, radical contest to see who could make rock'n'roll sound as ugly as possible while still retaining the rhythms and forms that made it rock'n'roll
