Metabolismus biography
The Germans of Metabolismus define a 90's revival of Krautrock, taking high the early 70s psychedelic influences (especially from Amon Duul, Can & Faust). Wild, weird and found of electronic experimentations this musical formation also investigates in RIO / avant prog territories. Metabolismus clearly goes beyond the current specifications of a rock band, constantly in "flux", in search of different projections to create a world of dream representation, freedom and surreal musical spheres. After living in a relative discretion (publishing something like fourty albums) the band emerges from the dark with their "Terra Incognita" (published in 1999 by Blackjack). This album presents different sources of musical aspiration, from minimal electronic, ambient, 60s psych to jazz. In this one we can detect the influence of late 70's German pre-ambient explorers as Harmonia and Cluster. Their Second release "Spriebwartsdrall" combines with quality different electronic motifs with an avalanche of psychedelic effects and free noises. An original musical phenomenon. Hard to find an equivalent in the new progressive rock scene.

Review by philippe

5 stars Hard to believe that this band has emerged recently. Metabolismus carries on unconventional music created by the weirdest and most amazing bands from the electronic- kraut era. Each track is an outstanding musical journey throws the unknown and the infinite echoes of the soul. "Disconnected Areas of Outer Nothingness" starts with an "atmospheric" accumulation of sound collages, the composition continues on a dreamy like expression conducted by linear organ textures, incorporating a Tibetan accent in the melody. The detached, tranquil soundscape is mixed with claustrophobic, tormented electronic intrusions. "Spiel 2" is a driven minimal essay in electronic with machines and automatic effects. "Die Grünen Löcher Von Aztal" is a bizarre, secret piece with mysterious "concrete" sounds and sampling. "Les Automates Spirituels" goes into "droney" and immersive electronic loops. One single note played by a sinister electric organ known variations in luminous and sunny melodies. "Mutter Erde/Terra Incognita " features many acoustic, organic and concrete noises worked together to create a nice orchestration...the tracks ends with a beautiful "harpsichord" sounding melody. A musical land of "abstract" beauty. One of the most original works from the 90s. A future classic.
