3 stars Zeuhl ? Make it avant-garde.

I applaud Musea for releasing this album, first of all. It is as anti-commercial as an album can get. And that is even in a anti-commercial scene. Unfortunate, this album is not in the same standard as their self titled demo (later re-released on CD as Introduction) and their genre defining debut album Les Morts Vont Vite. Only Promethee falls within the Zeuhl genre here with some dark vocals. The rest of this albums varies between dissonant avant-garde and Tibetan monks dissonant trombone use.

So, why do I think this is a good album ? First of all, Shub Niggurath manages to create a dark, dark place with this album. The mood is the likes of total damnation no black metal bands has ever managed to replicate. Welcome to hell.

The use of trombone and harmonium throughout this album is excellent. So is the drums and the bass. This album is nowhere near a Zeuhl album and is clearly on the avant-garde end of the avant-garde genre. But I still think this is a good album. But it is nowhere near as good as both the demo and the brilliant Les Morts Vont Vite album. But give it a try, anyway.
