4 stars FUNGAL ABYSS is a side project of Seattle based post metal band LESBIAN. Here we have some terrific spaced out stuff offered by this fellows, which really impresses me the more I listen. The album title seems to refer to the genre typical bands Bardo Pond and Acid Mothers Temple, where 'Abgrund' finally marks the German expression for abyss in order to round this up. You can expect long and winding cosmic excursions, drenched with echoing and soaring guitars, floating as well as uptempo rocking, improvised in the studio under the influence of Teonanacatl they claim.

Well, there's no need for any overdubs respectively edits then, right? In total they offer more than 60 minutes of jam material divided in four sections. Year Of The Bones marks the highlight in my opinion, an absolutely gripping affair, hypnotically meandering in best krautrock tradition similar to Electric Orange. Bravo - 'Bardo Abgrund Temple' is a substantial album when it comes to space rock standards, anything but lovelessly thrown on the stage, a result of inspired sessions. Recommended to all fans of cosmic pleasure trips.
