ABABABABABABAS (Blue Lion Child) makes Dens' rather strange first album on Further, 2012's A Lion's Baptism, seem like radio-friendly fodder by comparison. I tried to keep it pure, and again bleak. BAAL'S (KITTEN TRUMPETEER CHOIR) fades in with what sounds like waves of harsh, scalding feedback-let's call it the black metal of ambient. Dens conjures pitiless, post-apocalyptic.

Tracks like opener "Baal's (Kitten Trumpeteer Choir)" are blackened and apocalyptic without being metal, and extended drones like "Masks and Mold Matter" and "In Abra and Umbra" feature looped waves of feedback, demented psychedelic guitar licks, and screeching violin.

Hans Dens, nee Innercity, takes to exp-drone with a dark-ambient drill, hollowing out the dullness and injecting it with wriggling new life that will earworm its way into your brain. The impossibly titled ABABABABABABAS (Blue Lion Child) is chopped into disparate song titles but never deviates from the mission at hand; it’s a singular movement, directed to the tunnels of the electronic underground. Dens is a restless soul, not at all content to leave much to chance, his angry drifts reminiscent of some of those great LPs on the sed Fedora Corpse label.
