Apparently, they can.
After I listened to the whole album for the first time, I turned to Mike from Consouling Sounds and asked him "whose idea was it to lock these two geniuses up in a recording studio". Mike said that is was all their own idea and added the the fact that he was immensely pleased to be able to release the end result. If I owned a record company, I'd be damn pleased too. You get two seasoned musicians who clearly put their mark on a certain genre. I mean, Aidan has been doing this for centuries and Tomas has been responsible for a landmark album with James Welburn (Barchan - Soliton). Yes, landmark, I regard that album as the breath of fresh air the drone-scene needed.
'Werl' is ninety-five minutes of experimentation, a continuously evolving and thus highly varied masterpiece. In fact, the typical initial idea I had about drones with free jazz was forced to expand. There are industrial passages, there is a strange and psychedelic guitar solo from Aidan, there are elements of ambient, noise, krautrock, psychedelic rock and doom. It's impossible to pick a favorite track, as they all float in and out of one another and create a new atmosphere each time. I mean, 'III' is noisy, 'IV' has something Godspeed-y, 'V' is minimal as hell, 'VII' could be a psychedelic sludge noise rock track from the sixties if that existed back then and so on.
My advice? Let me put it this way: if nobody is going to send me a physical copy of the album, I'm damn well going to buy it myself, even though I already have the flac-version.
