Wovenhand - Refractory Obdurate (2014) ALBUM STREAMING

David Eugene Edwards is untameable. Since his tormented God-fearing incantations with the now legendary punkish alt-country-folk 16 Horsepower in the mid-90s until this last and seventh full length album by Wovenhand (also spelled as Woven Hand), "Refractory Obdurate", presented here, Edwards seems to get even fiercer with age. Through time, Wovenhand's music became heavier and heavier, a tendency which was very noticeable on their last album, "The Laughing Stalk", in 2012. That album was produced by Alexander Hacke, of Einstürzende Neubauten's fame, now in the re-formed, with Edwards in the line-up, Crime & The City Solution. In the meantime, Wovenhand left Glitterhouse Records to join the more hardcore punk oriented Deathwish, Inc., where Converge and Deafheaven are the most prestigious current artists, a move that confirms Wovenhand's musically more aggressive orientation.

On a side note, the song "Good Shepherd" sounds surprisingly like a denser and beefed up Echo &The Bunnymen's.

"Refractory Obdurate" is without the shadow of a doubt the heaviest record in Wovenhand's already consequent discography, it is full of blood and fury, a particularly intense and spooky listening experience. Dive head first into this powerful record below.
