Prog Reviewer
4 stars Those who know their prog history will recall that zeuhl can be best thought of as a weird offshoot of jazz fusion, with early Magma releases being along decidedly fusion-oriented lines (in keeping with Christian Vander's reverence of John Coltrane) before shifting into the "Klingon opera" mode of peak zeuhl.

One Shot are a group who vividly recall zeuhl's fusion roots, and who play a style of fusion which bridges classic fusion of a dark, volcanic Mahavishnu Orchestra bent with zeuhl stylings, particularly when it comes to having a dark, pulsating rhythm underpinning their compositions. Ewaz Vader, the release preceding this, pioneered this style very effectively, whilst Dark Shot takes it even further, immersing the listener into a subterranean world of sinister zeuhl- fusion guitar growls and keyboard titters. Deserves the consideration of fans of both subgenres.

Warthur | 4/5 |
