  • Dark ambient doyen Lustmord will release his next album, The Word As Power, in June. California-based Welshman Brian Williams has been making experimental for more than three decades, though The Word As Power is his first album since 2009, and his first for Kiran Sande's Blackest Ever Black imprint. Over the past couple of years he's been touring his TRINITY live show, a conceptual project inspired by nuclear weapons testing in New Mexico. The album contains a number of vocal contributions from Tool's Maynard James Keenan, Aina Skinnes Olsen, ex-Swans member Jarboe and Soriah—the first time Williams has used vocals so prominently in his work. A press release says The Word As Power incorporates "voices, electronics, immense sub-bass, field recordings and other acoustic phenomena." For a taste of what to expect, check out this short, hair-raising medley of album material on the Blackest Ever Black SoundCloud page. Tracklist 01. Babel 02. Goetia 03. Chorazin 04. Grigori 05.
