Current 93 Nature Unveiled
They don't come anywhere close to the overwhelming brilliance of the original album. As with many bands - their first release is best. The follow-up 'Dog's Blood Rising' while excellent, lacks coherence. This is a very original and unnerving recording and is perfect listening for a dark foggy Halloween night.

They would not dare. The stuff of nightmares made flesh. Call a priest and pray whatever demon just entered your body can be exorcised! I remember waking out of my sleep at night as a child.

His style brings an odd iciness to the whole affair as he freezes many moments on the record and casts them into an uncomfortable stasis. He also increases the presence of pure noise on the record, which provides an increased anxiety and semblance Current 93 Nature Unveiled destruction. Liles manages to summon the Antichrist with bravado, but unlike Tibet he seems happy with allowing his evil to brood.
Unfortunately this remix is only available to the first 1, people that buy the reissue and so in some time I imagine Tibet will have to give due consideration to all the material associated with Nature Unveiled.
After 24 years David Tibet's debut full-length as Current 93 has been reissued in its original form on compact disc. To Rinpoche and James Low. Current 93 Nature Unveiled back through the years: Capvt Iniqvorvn. Nature Unveiled remaster by Current After 24 years David Tibet's debut full-length as Current 93 has been reissued in its original form on compact disc.
The audio has been completely re-mastered to great effect, but the additions available on the release from Durtro are gone, replaced only in the first 1, copies by an icy Andrew Liles remix.
That remix rounds the album out quite nicely, but the omissions are nonetheless annoying. The exaggerated dance of figures projected by the fire is an excellent metaphor for the reverberated moans and chants that jump and teleport throughout "Ach Golgotha Maldoror is Dead. The way different samples are lumped together and cut Kyung Wha Chung Con Amore is dizzying, causing no little amount of disorientation.
That image of slowly undulating figures above describes the entirety of Nature Unveiled partly because of Stapleton's talent and Current 93 Nature Unveiled because of Tibet's monstrous and lucid vision. The first groans of sound are as a rising curtain and what follows is a nightmare puppet show of light, wherein the Antichrist is summoned only to be cursed and rejected by an adamant and frightened Tibet. As various samples begin to clash and blend into a supreme panic the effectiveness of Current 93's approach on this record becomes plain.
Annie Anxiety's truly awesome performance in Current 93 Nature Unveiled Mystical Body of Christ in Chorazaim The Great in the Small " is one of her most memorable and it heightens the play of human cries, treated pianos, monastic chants, unidentifiable stereo oddities, and defiant vocals that populate both songs. The details are made more powerful thanks to Denis Blackham's re-mastering job and remarkably this album sounds more clear and robust than many modern recordings made by artists with similar palettes.
It has been 24 years since Nature Unveiled was released, but it sounds more powerful to me now than it ever did. Tibet's preoccupation with Christian imagery, apocalyptic narratives, and both surrealism and mysticism is evident throughout the record, something made doubly clear by the revamped liner notes. These same topics are eventually addressed with greater maturity later in Tibet's career, but conceptually Nature Unveiled is surprisingly accomplished.
The dual authorship in the liner notes helps to emphasize the dual nature of the record's subject matter, drawing the album's many themes together in the characters of Ducasse and Christ By reifying man's potential for evil in the character of Maldoror and by emphasizing the hope in Christ's return Tibet manifested the phenomenology of fear and redemption with a fairly amazing depth, even if immature lines like "Fuck you, Maldoror" rear their head now and again.
The Current 93 Nature Unveiled between Isidore Ducasse's anti-God-man and Christ the God-man bares fruit in the end and grants credence to Tibet's synthetic approach.
All of this plays out, Current 93 Nature Unveiled course, with respect to "nature," a thing I can only imagine Tibet associates with man. Indeed, closer inspection of the conceptual work also makes clear some still Current 93 Nature Unveiled political and social commentary, which are couched in religious expectancy and a sense of hopelessness concerning man's fallen state. Current 93's early output is often sandwiched into the industrial category due to its abrasive Various Tales From The Darkside The Movie, but clearly this recording was unlike anything else being made at the time either sonically or ideally.
It is unfortunate that this reissue is missing the additions from the CD version of the album; with them it would be a near-perfect release.
