NYC Experimental guitarist Reg Bloor announces the release of a third solo record “VIEWER DISCRETION IS NOT ADVISED” on the SYSTEMS NEUTRALIZERS label. This is the follow-up to 2018’s “Sensory Irritation Chamber” and 2015’s “Theme From and Imaginary Slasher” where she takes her experiments in atonal harmony, dissonance, angular melodies and dizzying meter to new harshly distorted extremes.

She mixes the up-tempo immediacy of Punk, the skronk of No Wave, the harshness of Metal, the angular melodies of Progressive rock, and the atonality of the Avant-Garde in a dense harmonic weave that is an onslaught to the senses. Her intense but impishly playful compositions take you from dark depths to screechy heights and her energetic performances have won critical acclaim in the US and Europe.

Reg recorded and toured with Glenn Branca for 18 years, andreleased 3 records with THE PARANOID CRITICAL REVOLUTION. She went solo in 2014, sharing bills with such acts as Lydia Lunch, Oneida, and Stephen O'Malley of Sun O))) and on festivals such as Basilica Drone, Off Festival, and Red Bull Music Academy NY Festival. She has worked with David Bowie, Page Hamilton, Thurston Moore, John Patitucci, Annie Clark/St. Vincent, Mike Watt, Adrian Utley (Portishead), Ty Braxton, tomandandy, members of Godspeed You Black Emperor, visual artists Tony Ourlser and Linda Carmella Sibio and on the soundtracks to the films The Mothman Prophecies, Terror Firmer, and Shakespeare's Shitstorm.

"...Possibly the best performance I saw all night: a solo set by the electric guitarist Reg Bloor, who speed-strummed and power-riffed on her Les Paul through a harmonizing pedal, playing loud, structured, harmonically complex pieces, centering on strange chords, sometimes evoking Jimmy Page, sometimes an orchestra. It was committed and complex, and never let up."
-Ben Ratliff – The New York Times

"Reg Bloor has a clear grasp of compositional methods and controlled dynamics that informs every moment of her playing. Yet every recording is impassioned and free. It takes a rare talent to balance these competing forces in one’s creative efforts, and here is one woman who can do it." - The Sound Projector on Sensory Irritation Chamber
