Over the past few years, experimental musician Peter J. Woods and percussionist Ryan Bollis have collaborated in a number of diverse settings, ranging from GALACTIC CANNIBAL’s straight ahead pop punk roar to the aptly titled PETER J. WOODS FREE JAZZ ENSEMBLE. Through MOUNTAIN LANGUAGE, the two Milwaukee musicians fully explore their individual influences within the heavy hitting duo. The group effortlessly melds sludge, black metal, harsh noise and early-90s noise rock to create this terrifying aural assault.
On their debut album “CAUSTIC SURGE OF WEARY OCEANS” the group showcases all aspects of their work within this relatively short 40 minute cassette. Sparse howled vocals, heavy drumming, thick riffs, and aggro noise blasts sprawl across the release with a reckless abandon, all the while wearing their influences (whether that be the industrial carnage of SWANS or the horrifying works of HAROLD PINTER) on their sleeve. This is nightmare fuel for those who keep their eyes open.
