The first part in a two-part 12" treatise that together will be entitled As Iron Sharpens Iron, One Verse Sharpens Another. Over the past five years, Ricardo Donoso has sharpened his vision and craft into a diamond point. Opener "Affirmation" references Assimilating the Shadow (DIGI 046CD/LP) while still pulling the listener deeper into the darkened pyramid that Iron/Verse occupies. Bleeding into "The Sphinx," the focus is further dialed in. As the geometry that's graced the covers of each album has become more acute, so has the music contained therein. "Diagonal Environment" features a relentless pummeling of heady bass sequences and subtle leads while the "The Old Straight Track" mixes elements of blackened dub and burnt-out goa into something new and addictive.
