If there is still any doubt after HORDES' 8+ minute rendition of "Rocket USA" then perhaps these are simply not the sounds for you. This Michigan outfit drones their way through four mesmerizing tracks, and though the treatment of the aforementioned SUICIDE number is a bold and brilliant move, it is still not the highlight - that prize falls at the feet of "Summoning The Rust (The Palindrome)," a 23 minute exercise in subtle swarms of sound. There are a few other releases floating around (including a newish CD) and all are well worth your ears, but this release is by far my favorite HORDES material. Relax.
