Ancient Methods is reviving his eponymous label for the first time since 2013 on 21st September with the release of his debut LP ‘The Jericho Records’.
Intended to act as a “prequel” of sorts to the seven conceptual and biblically themed releases that preceded it, ‘The Jericho Records’ features 14-tracks of typically ferocious, enveloping and noisy techno.
The album contains several guest features including dark experimental artist Prurient, Regis, King Dude, Cindytalk, Orphx.
Premiering below is album highlight, ‘Crack And Collapse In The Storm Of Lights’ which lurches forth with industrial force and distorted energy. Described as collapsing into a “‘Knights & Bishops’-styled techno rave”, the track hangs on to the narrative concept of the record while still acting as fearsome, club ready behemoth.
Ancient Methods has numerous dates lined up in support of the album, the details of which you can also see below.
