4 stars The multinational ensemble HAIKU FUNERAL was formed back in 2008, the initial recording session made by a duo consisting of William Kopecky and Dimitar Dimitrov appearing in 2009 as their debut album "Assassination in the Hashish Cathedral". This collaboration seems to have been a satisfying one, as a follow-up production has appeared just one year later in the shape of "If God Is a Drug". Like its predecessor it's released as a limited edition disc, printed in 50 copies only, through the Danish label Hikikomori Records.

If you have sought out your inner demons and conquered them or merely are fascinated by soundscapes dark, disturbing and frightening, the ambient creations of this duo are ones you'd better seek out. Subtle touches of black metal, industrial music and psychedelic rock are details spicing up the proceedings in a nifty, nightmare-inspired manner, and there are even a few touches of symphonic-inspired electronic textures to appreciate. The landscapes are all menacing, frightening and utterly dark however, to an extent that anyone not totally stable of mind and spirit should avoid this one. But if your psyche is rock-solid, you have learnt to deal with your inner darkness and music of this kind sounds intriguing, you'll be among a select group of people that will appreciate and enjoy this latest hellish constellation crafted by Haiku Funeral. A very well-made effort it is too, recommended to the chosen few.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
