Dread is a newly formed project of legendary sound artist Brian Williams, best known as Lustmord. Since 1980 his dark sound sculptures have been highly influential not only in music genres such as ambient and industrial but also in film and games. Besides these genres, Williams is thoroughly captivated by the sonic potential of dub music, an obsession reflected in the various dub mixes he’s made for other artists: Think of the remix album for Puscifer, or the dub remix EP for the Lustmord album [other] in 2009. For years it was his desire to form an individual project dedicated to the dub genre, and after much preparation and recording, ant-zen is glad to present Dread’s debut In Dub.

The mightiness and intensity of this album is both tense and trance-inducing, drawing attention to the shape and depth of the space between sounds as well as to the sounds themselves. The instrumental tracks, drenched in echo and reverberation, ebb and flow, dropping in and out of the mix, kept together by the prominent use of varied deep bass sounds. The use of implemented voices, acoustic drums, and an electric guitar played by Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit impart a distinctly organic feel to the music even though the effects are electronically created.

Both unique and original, this release melds seamlessly into the tapestry of Brian Williams’ work. Breathtaking, dark, unshiftable and solid, this is the kind of dread where you’re not sure where the evil force lurks, but you know it’s out there searching for you…
