    Foreboding, dark-ambient odes to the death of the American dream. This is the sound of physical labor, and of blood, sweat, and tears. Metal rings on metal, shaping flesh and bone in the eternal pulse of the anvil and the searing flames of the furnace.

about

Arizona is best known for its desert landscapes and grand canyons. Yet GOG mastermind Michael Bjella paints a very different picture of his native state with "Ironworks". Recorded in a late 19th century blacksmith shop, where several members of his own family toiled, GOG crafts foreboding odes to the death of the American dream using source sounds and atmosphere. This is the sound of physical labor, of blood, sweat, and tears. Metal rings on metal, shaping flesh and bone in the eternal pulse of the anvil and the searing flames of the furnace. "Ironworks" gives enslavement through capitalism a sinister soundtrack. GOG has been described as "blackened psychedelic doom-drift dronelords" but now, with 'Ironworks', GOG enters a new dimension of sound that is Bjella's most deeply personal, and highly political, musical statement thus far. Initially released on vinyl-only, “Ironworks” has been repackaged in lavish digipak format and is easily one of the best dark ambient releases in years!
