That is what Prurient has been doing for many long years now. And yet, Arrowhead is a somewhat lighter release for Prurient, the key word here being "somewhat. The opening piece "Sternum" consists of a sensitive lamentation of floor tom and mumbling vocals, over a high-pitched whine. That whine is punishing at high volume, but turn that knob down a few notches and the piece becomes almost ambient and entrancing.

If you're interested in Prurient, Arrowhead is a revealing transitional retrospective, intense but with precedent. If you're not, it's a shocking, singular piece of hair-raising noise. Originally recorded in 2004, Arrowhead consists of three squelch-and-sustain tracks built by high-pitched microphone feedback, challenged only by spasms of drumming and the mutilated screams of Prurient mastermind Dominick Fernow. He infamously employed a similar approach- a thin, powerful shriek of feedback that slowly warps and expands until it blooms into a boundless abyss- on "Roman Shower", the brazen first track from his 2005 Load Records debut, Black Vase.
