"All Are Guests In the House of the Lord is the first collaboration between Prurient and Kevin Drumm. Both artists are regarded as singular stylistic entities in their own right. Kevin Drumm is known equally from his more improvised work with Jim O'Rourke and Taku Sugimoto as well as being a mainstay in the Chicago noise world with releases like Sheer Hellish Miasma on the Mego label. Prurient has been toiling in the fields of noise for over a decade and has developed an increasingly dynamic output incorporating darkly arranged synths. Their cumulative work displayed here is both unexpected and focused. Using source sounds of intense tonal drones supplied by Drumm, the two create a haunted atmosphere that is far removed from noise, exploring minimal junctures, using field recording and clean patient vocals to lead the way. All Are Guests In the House Of The Lord is among the darkest record in either artist's catalog. The subtle textures of the electronics combined with near-cinematic arrangements make for a record that is engaging and consistent in mood of tension."
