Over four years in the making and clocking in at just over an hour -- Vessels, the first proper full-length Freeze Etch album, is a dynamic excursion into a world of thick organic rhythms, striking melodic textures, and surging ambient momentum. By turns sparkling and pristine and by others ugly and smoldering, Vessels explores the brooding tensions between dynamically opposed auras, employing textures which are at once terrestrial and alien, as well as melodic structures which merge skilled composition with the ambiguous flood of drone.

Pejorative is the first official release from Freeze Etch in over four years (following 2003's Helios EP). This self-released, severely limited and hand-numbered EP comes in an edition of 100 copies, packaged in vintage CD-ROM caddies featuring additional design by Eric Carl.
Pejorative contains six previously unreleased tracks - including a spoken-word collaboration with notorious cyberpunk author Kenji Siratori, as well as two tracks (*) from the first-ever full-length Freeze Etch album, Vessels, to be released soon on Force Of Nature. Get a copy while you can!
