Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars NECROMONKEY are the Swedish duo of Mattias Olsson and David Lundberg and I'm sure Mattias came up with the album's title(haha). This is a band that was quite active from 2013 to 2016 but has sort of dropped off the map since then. Mattias always seems to be into some sort of project while Lundberg is busy with his GOSTA BERLINGS SAGA band. During that four year period NECROMONKEY had released three studio albums, an EP and a live record.

This is the third studio album and their most electronic. In fact lots of beats in the form of drums, drum machines and electronics. I find it interesting that GOSTA BERLINGS SAGA has become more like this third album since 2018 with ""Et EX" then "Konkret Music" making me think maybe NECROMONKEY is done, but lets hope not.

A fair amount of mellotron once again but not like on the debut "Necroplex" which is my favourite. We get a guest Kristian Holmgren who plays bass with WALRUS a band that Olsson drums with so that's the connection there. It is humbling to read the detailed list of what's played on each track, especially the electronics. Oh and there's the "mellotron gino vanelli celloes and basses" on the opener. Mattias?! That opener is my third favourite track, a great 11 minute start to this record. Maybe the proggiest the way it changes throughout. The processed vocals late are from our guest Kristian Holmgren who must have been hanging out.

My favourite song is "Everybody Likes Hornets But Nobody Likes Hornet Egg" at 5 minutes it's the orchestration, light electronics and atmosphere that create beauty. The atmosphere leaves around 3 1/2 minutes in and this doesn't sound as good as a result but then it returns just before 4 minutes as the electronic beats step aside.

The closer "The Current beneath The Squarewave" is my final top three. And it's that sound early on with the depth that is the attraction for me, those bass sounds. Mellotron choirs too and it's spacey. I really like the first 3 1/2 minutes of "The Rage Within The Clouds" then it turns electronic to the end of this 10 1/2 minute track. Meanwhile it's the last section of "Like Fun You Are" that I'm really impressed with when it comes to that song. Still a good song overall including some haunting stuff and mellotron cello.

A very solid 4 stars and one that will go in my Electronic section.

Show Me Where It Hertz is their 3rd studio album. First thing that I would like to say about this album is that I really love the title and the 'pun' wi ... (read more)
