John Kaskie I'm thankful for this DL record as well as all of the others in the catalog. This whole project is pretty magickal IMO and with Phil dropping his body it's also exquisitely sad and it probably signals the end of DL as it was. As It Is. Nothing could be better than listening to this and reading some old old books. Thank you cEvin and company for making music that's ended up being a soundtrack to the most important parts of this lowly creatures life. Buy it!!!!!! Favorite track: tuFF paws.

about

2019 will mark 25 years since the formation of Download, the avant-garde, post-industrial project featuring Skinny Puppy's Cevin Key, and Vancouver fixture musician Phil Western.

Unknown Room is the project's 11th studio album, recorded in Los Angeles over a several-year period, culminating in a recent two-month session in the Fall that Key describes as being "extremely intense."

The results are stunning. Key and Western dived deep for this release, continuing a love for the magic of synthesizers, coupled with an interest in mining the sounds of the past to create something new. On Unknown Room, one hears some of the old Bites-era sampling techniques coming through, as well as a strong Tangerine Dream influence. Fans of second-wave Download, early Skinny Puppy, minimal techno, and off the wall zaniness from the 1970s and 1980s pioneers that mixed prog experiments with analog equipment will love what is here.

Released exclusively on Artoffact Records on various formats, including loads of merch goodies, fan-packs, apparel and more!
