On his first DataObscura release, Strom Noir (Emil Mat'ko) from Slovakia delivers a collection of mesmerizing transmuted guitar textures and noise drones that show a keen persistence of vision, with dark tensions that draw the listener into all-encompassing sonic depths. Emil has previously recorded on such labels as Hibernate, U-Cover, and Resting Bell.
