Azonic – Prospect of the Deep Volume One (Indivisible Records, 2017)
Prospect of the Deep Volume is the new album by experimental guitarist Andy Hawkins. The album features a wall of distorted guitar sound over which Hawkins develops long tone guitar improvisations. On this new Azonic project he’s joined by percussionist Tim Wyskida on timpani, concert bass drum, and gong who contributes mesmerizing beats.
The vinyl version of the album includes two pieces: “Oblivion of the Deep” and “The Argonaut’s Reckoning.” The CD edition contains a bonus track, “Voices of the Drowned.”
Prospect of the Deep Volume One opens new gates into the sound of the electric guitar.
