White Suns- Totem (2014)
With "Priest in the Laboratory", White Suns are immediately showcasing their signature sound; harsh noise rock that swells up into a dissonant break for vocals to be yelled.
White Suns' are not a band for someone new to noise rock, and Totem pushes even further into the harsh noise territory than their previous albums with tracks like "Disjecta Membra" and "Fossil Record". If you are a fan of bands like Air Conditioning, Aufgehoben, and Sightings, however, this album is right up your alley.
For most listeners, "Clairvoyant" will probably be the most memorable track, with its screamed out "My Guide's face is made of mirrors. My Guide's face looks like my fathers." lingering on after the album is over.
