2 stars The ten minute debut of Eskaton is very similar in style to the earliest Magma albums. Scatty vocals in French. My French is dreadful, so I've got no idea what they're on about other than the first track being called The Chant of the Earth.

That first track is built around a toe-tapping rhythm that sticks to the same pace throughout, with the vocal scatting and jazzy synth/fender adding depth. The only change comes with a minute to go as the drum rhythm changes and the guitar and bass kick in and synthesised electronic sounds create a UF effect. Sadly it only lasts to close off the track which is a shame as you feel like its about to go somewhere.

IF then opens with atmospheric wind noises, but from there although its a different rhythm its more of the same, scatty nasal sounding vocals, jazzy organ and fender jamming.

Not much to write home about really, but its certainly not poor.
