Music: Exoterm – Exits Into A Corridor

Exoterm’s new album Exists Into A Corridor sees the Norwegian/US supergroup play compositions from bassist Rune Nergaard, playing some intense jazz and progressive rock fueled improvisational music that are engaging and super interesting.

The 6 track album starts off with “First Light,” a dreary, guitar and synth-driven soundscape that is equally unsettling as it is endearing and warm. The thrash influence on this track is powerful, as the track builds up momentum throughout, building this intense energy throughout. The intense drumming and saxophone-led “Forest Mist – Night” is a tremendously powerful moment on the album as well, as the screeches remind me of a Colin Stetson composition.  “…Back Towards The Car – a Night” is an unsettling follow up, with a hellish, dystopian tone with the wailing guitars and heavy drums throughout. The intensity is ridiculous, as with “Two More Times” and “Manufacturing A Smile (Exits Into A Corridor),” with the latter track being this 8-minute stunning full of heavy saxophone leads, intense drumming and dominant basslines and synths. This is like Colin Stetson meets Swans in the best possible way. Exoterm really came through with a hellish masterpiece and one I will be for some time.
