3 stars It finally took some years to see them coming back with a new album - FUNGAL ABYSS from Seattle are a typical space jam crew who have no problem to achieve extended improvs on the fly, definitely gripping on top of it. If actually recorded in one go and left unmodified on this occasion ... chapeau ... due to this highly charged atmosphere they are providing. That said, comprised of three guitarists at least, they are able to draw on nearly unlimited resources after all.

The FUNGAL ABYSS rhythm branch is working hard for pace and power, you can be sure. Further on Nathan Smurthwaite, Dan LaRochelle and Arran McInnis are superimposing a breath-taking fireworks with their instruments. Wow! It's something like a controlled wall of heavy space in general, overrunning you like a tsunami wave, but - good news - releasing everybody unscathed afterwards, that means 45 minutes later. So this is offered with all facets you are able to imagine, partially even drifting into noise and violence, but never ever loosing the main orientation.

The guitars are provoking soaring outings, painful moments, this is squeeking, howling, swirling, crashing ... a very intense and hypnotic affair, sounds close to the likes of Subarachnoid Space somehow. Released on the German label Adansonia Records this album is consisting of two long excursions, each matching one vinyl side. Provided with a proper groove second part Virile Member comes a bit more accessible over the course. Recommended to fans of unbounded heavy space trips - 3.5 stars.
