New York power-electronics icon Dominick Fernow, a.k.a. Prurient, made his bloody mark lunging at amplifiers and acting out a savage, shirtless, one-man hate-fuck. But after moonlighting alongside buzz-worthy synth bummers Cold Cave, here he combines his emotionally vivisecting yowl with darkwave's chilly slouch. The juxtaposition can be jarringly naked -- watch in horror as he screeches about penetrating someone with a tree branch over hospital-clean keyboards. But at its very best, Bermuda Drain works like the expressionistic, sexually primal void where you imagine Wax Trax fist-fighting 4AD.
