4 stars Diamanda Galas debut mini-LP is more than explosion. It is just music from different world. Not from space, her roots are there, on our land and in our modern world. But her music is something you even couldn't imagine it exists.

Main Diamanda's musical instrument is voice. She uses some minimalistic electronic effects and tapes as small sound accessories, and it's all. No more instruments, no more musicians. Just herself and her magic diabolic voice!

There are just two compositions on this mini-LP ( even all later re-releases, including CD, were never added with bonuses). Open nerve and scream both are her arm, genius and deep experimentalism are both her strategy.

If you're never listened to her music, just be ready to be shocked as deep as you can only imagine. Or better just start from her another, later work. Because not everyone can survive almost 30 minutes of screams, cries, half-spoken voice (few languages) and very few sound effects mixed in two long nervous, exalting and crazy compositions.

But there is magic (possibly black magic) in her voice and her music ( yes, I believe ,it is music!). And there is one thing only I can promise: you will love her or will hate her.

I love her music and her world.

Warning: Not for listeners with nervous breakdown and mellow music aesthetes.

4 stars O Diamanda, have mercy on my long distress! Litanies of Satan is Diamanda's debut album and, God, what a debut! Two long songs which shows the unbeliaveble vocal skills of this amazing artist. Using just some drones, effects and tapes, Diamanda build a solid, provocative and frightening perf ... (read more)
