Prog Reviewer
4 stars On Ewaz Vader One Shot straddle the line between zeuhl and jazz fusion - already a pretty thin one given that the earliest Magma releases had such a strong jazz influence (in particular via Christian Vander's idolisation of John Coltrane). In particular, the release seems to blend the throbbing, pulsating rhythm section we typically expect of zeuhl with the dark, volcanic style of the Mahavishnu Orchestra's Inner Mounting Flame, an intoxicating mixture that fans of both subgenres will find very much worth their time and which also suits the scale the band are working on as a four-piece unit, rather than the full Klingon choir and orchestra required for hardcore zeuhl work.
