Grasshopper have logged years of auditory exploration as fixtures of the New York avant improv scene, ravaging P.A. systems with multi-instrumental sessions of overwhelming synth drone and feedback-soaked noise animated by the howling voices of their trumpets. On Dark Sabbath: Symbols of Evil, the duo pushes their uncompromising live assault to new heights of doom-worshipping heaviness and tonal abstraction. Channeling their classically trained chops and extensive history of psychic improvisatory exercises into the darkest sessions we’ve heard from them to date, Jesse DeRosa and Josh Millrod sketch out a unique strain of electro-acoustic performance ripped to shreds in a tug-of-war between the contemporary classical, DIY noise, and free-jazz traditions.
