3 stars This second generation zeuhl album is somewhat legendary for its aggressiveness and dark atmospheres, which are on a par with or perhaps even eclipse Magma's at times. Since zeuhl is a genre created by one man, Christian Vander, it's perhaps unfair to judge an album poorly because it sticks to the zeuhl script too closely. Having said that, this album is so Magma-ish that it could be Magma! All the hallmarks are there- dissonant, high pitched vocals, tinkly piano, clattery drums, wildly overdriven bass guitar, although Shub- Niggurath does offer something a little different- a lot of crazy feedbacky sorta-jazzy avant garde guitar solos. The atmosphere of the record is certainly dark, oppressive and violent, making for a cathartic listening experience to say the least. The musicianship is impressive, though not quite up to Magma standards. Certainly anyone interested in zuehl should have this album, if you don't already. It's an essential in the (sub)-genre.
