SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars This new musical formation plays a heavy-fuzzy space / psychedelic rock that combines kick ass guitar riffs to almost pastoral stringed instruments. Their production doesn't reveal inovative elements for the genre but the inspiration is perceptible time to time. The moods oscillate between melancholic listening and nervous freak out tension. Every man starts with acoustic bucolic dreamy like elements, rised into a rather desperate, sad atmosphere then it carries on loud, heavy space rocking sequences. Rather poor, inconsistent vocals accompany the song. The tempo is very slow, massive and the ambience is not really festive. Dom's lament is an other sinister, almost depressive tune, taking back the same musical ingredients, long monotonous flute lines, tormented moody guitars, all things into a really low, doom-like, lethargic atmosphere. The band has some kraut-ish moments that can remind the darkest, most obscure, nocturnal facets of Paternoster, Sand, My Solid Ground. Test is a loud doom-death funereal rock piece with atrocious female vocals. Walking clouds is a nice dreamy like guitar prelude but there's no much changes and the result is rather boring after several minutes. The rest of the album is in the same vein, always bringing to the fore intimate, fragile acoustic passages and deep cavernous guitars in a very modern way (closed to contemporary metal). Nothing new and many naive, amateurish aspects. Recommended to fans of Acid Mothers Temple, Ghost and 500MG.
