SWANS picture
Swans are an experimental band from New York, New York, whose style has ranged from noise/crust to industrial to post-punk to art rock. They were part of the original "No-Wave" movement of the 80s.

Their earliest releases were very influential on sludge metal and crust punk, and are characterized by dirty, distorted walls of noise. For this reason, they have been included in the archives.

SWANS Reviews

SWANS Young God

EP · 1984 · Sludge/Post-metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
There's a flicker of tension and pensiveness about the slow doomy dirges on Swans' Young God. Whereas Cop came across as outraged, furious, but ultimately dead and rotting, somewhere deep within Young God something sinister is gradually coming to life. Complementing its parent album nicely - the two releases are usually conjoined on CD reissues - Young God is another important signpost in the early evolution of Swans and sounds even less like traditional doom metal than Cop. Fans of Burning Witch in particular might find this work an intriguing precedent for Witch's own particular brand of "how sickly can I make this riff sound?" doom.

SWANS Cop

Album · 1984 · Sludge/Post-metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Swans take doom metal riffs, post-punk production and disturbing lyrics and sort of mash them up into an unbelievably ugly gumbo on Cop, their second album. Howling about police brutality, heartache, jobs and violence, frontman Michael Gira is backed by riffs that sound like the world's roof falling in. Pegged by some as noise rock (and good golly is it noisy), I personally see it as a precedent for Black Flag's latter-day experiments in slowing their riffs down and getting weird (see, for instance, The Process of Weeding Out). Just about saved from doom metal territory by virtue of a complete lack of 1970s nostalgia or stoner pipe dreams, Cop is a cold, hard look at an ugly reality.
