As half of avant-metal authorities Corrections House, guitarist Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and soundscaper Sanford Parker (Minsk, Buried at Sea, a million productions) trudge moodily through the intersection of noise metal and ambient electronics. Mirrors of Psychic Warfare, the duo's project away from their busy bandmates, steps closer to the latter side while still scanning metal. Alternating between sedate brood and agonized howl, Kelly spurts a flowing river of distorted guitar, his manly moodiness resting comfortably atop Parker's steady beats and atmospheric programming.
