Acid Mothers Temple biography
Acid Mothers Temple is a completely freak out japanese neo-hippie tribe led by the guitarist Malato Kawabata (partially known for previous works published at the end of the 1970s). The band were formed in 1996 under the name Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O (Underground Freak Out). They started their career playing perpetual psychedelic jams very closed to Amon Duul II and Gong at their most gorgeous spacey rock moments. Since 1997 until now AMT have been one of the most prolific rock bands in term of CDs production. Their catalogue contains more than twenty albums (including different collaborations, with Kinski, David Aellen.) in less than ten years. Each album contains its special dose of "acid" musical fantasies, including lot of fuzzy guitars, "stoned" vocals, droning synthscapes and some futurist Eastern raga sounds. Unfortunately with a such big profusion in musical creation the quality is not obvious all the time. Some releases turn to parodies, pathetic imitations of old, primitive spacey rock bands. Nevertheless a few albums are really great and seriously beautiful; the psychedelic and electric bluesy "Pataphysical Freak Out Mu", the transcendent and sometimes almost jazzy 41st Century splendid Man. The tulmutuous soundtrack "Wild gals a go-go", the semi acoustic / world "La Novia" and "Univers Zen Ou De Zero A Zero" contain classic moments. The band have known several declinations under almost non distinct projects as Acid Mothers Temple & the Cosmic Inferno.

Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by mariorockprog

3 stars Another jamming album by Acid Mothers Temple, it has really good moments but as I said in other reviews, you will not find any spectacular, nor elaborated. It maintains their classic style of space/krautrock, and if you like that kind of music you will find it interesting, personally I liked, but there a lot of best bands do it better, this one maintain me entertained but you are not missing a thing here. The first two song were the one that I like the most, while the last one, not too much, was too much noisy and without any melody, solo or riff that I found it interesting.Finally, a enjoyable album with mainly guitar jams and keyboard space sound that doesn't have any direction, but can keep you entertained in most of the parts.

Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by mariorockprog

3 stars The "thousandth album" of Acid Mother Temple, a Japanese band that have influences by a lot of groups of space rock, krautrock and psychedelic music. basically as most of their albums, it has some nice rhythms or riffs in the background and a lot of improvisation mainly with guitar but also keyboard passages and solos are presented, as I said previously, the music will be so close to groups like ash ra temple. I considered an average album, but the music doesnt evolve in something better, and sometimes it seems so repetitive, so if you want some acid/psychedelic rock to relax but without any too elaborated, maybe this album will be of your interests.

3 stars Tons of ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE's newest albums? Oh would get flooded with their spacey toxicosis, I've assumed. A Peruvian independent label Buh Records has injected kind of Krautrock-flavoured exaggerated, sadistic, sexadelic speed addiction titled "Wandering The Outer Space" in October 2017. Exactly as previously, plenty of distorted, dissected guitar explosions by Makoto and Mitsuko (Mitsuru), violent, offensive, a tad gentle space-synthesizer blasters, and critical plus serious rhythm section-oriented spacequakes can be heard on a full stomach, veiled in a delightful sleeve with such a colourful, hyperdynamic pic upon it.

Suggest the beginning shot of the first massive bombast "Anthem Of The Outer Space" could easily drive us mad. The first quiet guitar play reminds us of a similar taste to "Blue Velvet Blues" ... meaningless voices and sensually shouting guitar kicks sound like unexpected chemical top note in a matured whisky. Likewise, too complicated and asymmetric is the battle field created with polyrhythmic drumming / bass play and quirky magical guitar pitches in the middle part. The last pop / rock part is sorta danceable, enjoyable moment leaning towards "on-media" pop / rock in 80s. "The Targeted Planet" flavours completely of Krautrock, with weird bouzouki vibes, tape recorder- based eerie sounds, or bad mad voices ... all of which should be what Buh Records tries to exhibit, I imagine. The last "Forsaken Moonman" is like noisy, crazy, explosive sound dizziness. Sounds like AMT always play such a mass of noise upon stage, letting the audience dance psychedelically under psychic agent smoke.

We should be amazed at them, who can easily create tons of sound production ... not enough Neues though ... ;)

Review by DamoXt7942

3 stars Sounds like another addictive, abusive, bluesy, black comfort. I have no idea where in line this album "Starless And Bible Black Sabbath" was created because ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE are one of the most prolific artists all over the world even currently, but I'm sure this album should have been produced with their energetic, proactive, and improvisational sound experiments just like their previous works. The first (and the longest, great majority) track, that was titled after a renowned album by a renowned progressive rock pioneer and a renowned heavy metal artist themselves with much mischief and playfulness, is flooded with Hiroshi's spacey synthesizer wandering around the studio, massive and excessive rhythm compounds, and heavy guitar-oriented shoegaze sounds. Launching this track with mega-volume is exactly as addictive as abusive agents (the smoke by another audience has given serious headache to me). They would give earache to me definitely, but at the same time, this attack is of another comfort for me.

On the contrary, the last short one "Woman From A Hell" is a pop, catchy pleasure. Needless to say this song is filled with spaceship travelling sounds too and, drenched in danceable and enjoyable guitar machine gun and vocal explosion. AMTers and the audience can get excited and confused with joy. Why not addicted after such a black sabbath-y starshine?

Review by Neu!mann
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Acid Mothers Temple is a universe apart, obeying its own set of physical laws similar to but entirely different than the rules governing our own mundane cosmos. It would require a truly dedicated explorer to pierce the mystery of AMT and fully understand the band: the shifting incarnations, with different sets of musicians and alternating group names, make it hard for a newcomer to gain a stable foothold.

But this much is obvious: their latest-to-date adventure is the freakout jam album of 2016. To squares like me, for whom music is the only reliable narcotic, it could almost be a gateway drug to a higher dimension, where the fabric of space-time itself is webbed by killer grooves, paranormal guitars, and otherworldly ambient chillouts.

'Freakout' might be the wrong word however, because the album isn't random at all. Replays emphasize the calculation behind the apparent anarchy, and the macro-scale structure of the band's juggernaut sonic attack. There's freedom here to be sure, but it isn't freeform: one minute the music is adrift in a beatific void; the next it's being scrambled in a loud, one-chord motorik blender, insanely strung out (in both duration and mindset) but interrupted by unexpected moments of pinpoint unison playing.

A lazy comparison can be made to Ozric Tentacles and other Space Rockers, but the music of Acid Mothers Temple begins at that point of apogee where the Ozrics typically run out of fuel. The album's opening riff is distinctly Japanese in character, appropriate to the group's country of origin. But with tracks titles like "Nebulous Hyper Meditation", and instrument credits ("...at the time of this recording") that include 'Speed Guru', 'Space & Time', and 'Another Dimension', it's clear we've left the Earth far behind.

It all leads toward a dreamy acoustic guitar epilogue, and a several-minutes-long electronic hum sounding like an audio snapshot of the residual cosmic microwave background from the Big Bang. Four stars from a transported newbie, with a possible fifth star refracted in the much larger AMT omniverse.

4 stars Needless to say, "In C" is a masterpiece created by Terry RILEY. Not familiar with minimalistic music but I've listened to his play and got amazed really. No detailed explanation for this stuff needed, and AMT's "In C" cover can be mentioned apparently as their homage to Terry. Their interpretation for "In C" might not be simplified as minimalism but be merged with confused sound jack-in-a-box. Guess they would treat this superb fantasy to their soundscape, namely "space rock", Hiroshi's synthesizer-based brilliance effectively featured. This dreamy parfait can be enjoyed by not only minimalism freaks but also space-rock-addicted guys. Fortunately they play this "so to speak, tough to play" song as though to grab the minimal gem perfectly out.

Therefore they have created two high regards for "In C" ... I imagine strongly, distortedly (not a criticism but an admiration) influenced by Terry, Atsushi / Yoshimitsu / Makoto might have created and launched their minimal explosion "In E", that sounds crazy, spicy, and spacey just like their previous (and following) creations. This track is so drenched with ethnic flavour by tribal instruments, maybe along with Atsushi's inspiration, enough to exert difference from Terry's C upon the texture of sound. My pleasure to find such a consideration via their sound "identity" itself. Atsushi's squid-like bass play and Yoshimitsu's sharp drumming, both of which tighten their rhythm basis, are splendid and we cannot avoid this balanced weight at all. Of course, Makoto's swift guitar impression makes a bunch of stardust here and there, and yes, Hiroshi's synthesizer drives us mad obviously. Another fantasy really.

"In D", produced by Makoto, is more and more minimalistic and Rileyistic than other creations by them, but not only minimalistic but also flickering they (especially the producer Makoto) exert upon this track. Cannot say simply but let me feel they might express something difficult around the current world (not mention in detail here though). Like transcendental meditation or tranquilizing medication, their inorganic tiny sound word absorbs us completely, and takes us away permanently ... as if with telling us something of a risky business.

This is such a great minimalistic music blended with fantastic space rock, let me say, sorry for my very brief words.

Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by SpecialKindOfHell

4 stars Seeing Acid Mothers Temple on stage, you get an air of calm from the band, they're very comfortable up there, and they playfully unleash a sonic menagerie of sounds that wash over and bounce around everywhere. Sometimes a bit slower and in droning fashion, and at other times loud and strong. This recent LP "In Search of Lost Divine Ark" starts out as if the gas pedal is all the way down. The first song "Space Speed Suicide" starts everything with a huge roar, a loud Hawkwind-esque barrage of distortion and pulsating solo guitar rants. An as usual spacey quality surrounds the tracks here, which are all strong numbers, the extended "Born Free Stone Free" and "In Search of Lost Divine Ark" being standouts. The former tune is reminiscent of recent work by Master Musicians of Bukkake.

Perhaps part of it's strength comes from being released on experimental music label Important Records. First issues came on beautiful light blue swirled vinyl, with second pressings being on black. The LP packaging is stunning in addition, with an uncoated thick stock gatefold cover with wonderful, rather subdued and minimal, artwork than what they usually produce for their releases. Will hope for much more of this sort of thing from them in the future. Highly recommended.

3 stars Whatever you may think of Daevid Allen, no-one can doubt that he is an unusual person to say the least. Born in 1938 he has been a mainstay of the avant garde for many years and this album captures the latest incarnation of Gong, where they joined forces with Acid Mother Temple, a Japanese band performing a similar style of music.

This is the second album to be released from the 2004 tour, and captures a band that are kicking together producing music that is at the very limits of that definition. My wife tells me that the simple way to describe this album is just to say that it is crap, and I know where she is coming from. This is music that is out there, way out there, and if you want to see a photo of a naked 66 year old hippie strutting his stuff onstage then just look inside this digipak. www.voiceprint.co.uk

Pataphisical Freak Out MU!!

3 stars Stoner psych rock not for the squeamish...

The Acid Mothers Temple unit is a strange one, and I had no idea what to expect though their album covers signify a return to the vintage psychedelic acid fuelled flower power of the late 60s. I don't mind a brain blast occasionally of psychedelia such as Gong, or space rock such as Hawkwind, but those bands are nowhere near as tripped out as Acid Mother's Temple, not even close. It is like vintage Gong without the lyrics, mixed with Hawkwind's jamming sessions from their earlier years such as "Space Ritual", and one may also detect hints of krautrock such as Can or Grobschnitt's "Solar Music". "Pataphysical Freak Out MU!!" is extreme acid rock taken to the Nth degree. The band are concentric on capturing spaced out LSD soaked atmospherics using any musical instrument at their disposal. The guitars are a prominent focus using phased wah wah effects and sustained string bends.

The opening track 'Cosmic Audrey/Acid Takion' sounds like Jimi Hendrix had forgotten the words; it is simply mind expanding spacey guitar with a ton of feedback and a driving fast tempo beat. It is a well played guitar solo, but it has no riff or tune and is completely improvised over a sonic musical scape. It is certainly one of the better tracks on the album simply for its brute force and no holds barred killer guitar that shreds into the brain; designed to blow the brain apart in would say. Makoto Kawabata is the guitar speed master who is joined by layers of Atsushi Tsuyama bass explosions and Hajime Koizumi of percussion blasts.

Next on the menu, is a dose of tranquillity on 'White Summer Of Love/Third Eye Of The Whole World', with some acoustics and ambience, once again without a melody, or tune, but simply a hypnotic sound to kick back to, presumably after a hit of the acid; it is a come down song. The space whispers are reminiscent of Gong but not as sensuous, though the vocals on 'Astrological Overdrive' are a little more relaxing with all the spacey textures vibrating around them.

The music though on the album builds with hypnotic repetitions and includes extremely distorted guitars such as on the lengthy 'Blue Velvet Blues' that is virtually an improvised guitar on high phased fuzzy reverb. Makoto again takes center stage but it may grate on the nerves after about 6 minutes, though it is only about half way through. The sound is ultra-psyched out and is obviously LSD induced. It would not be surprising to learn that the whole album was created under the influence, such is the vibe of the music.

This is quite a chilling album that left me cold from wanting to explore further into this band. It is certainly a curio and the band have produced a plethora of other albums equally as trippy in the content one would expect. They have an underground cult following for good reason and will only appeal to a certain section of listeners; a very elite section at that who are into stoner rock with an extreme acid fuelled edge. It is what it is, and I would say if you wanted to listen to some of the trippiest music on the planet perhaps you could go no further than Acid Mother's Temple and the Melting Paraisio UFO, and this is one of their highest rated albums, therefore a good place to start. This stoner rock is not for the squeamish, that is for certain.

4 stars I wasn't really expecting a thing like this when I decided to give another try to a band that's quite highly rated on PA but I've never been too much into, apart their "In C" that's a good interpretation of the Riley's masterpiece.

"La Novia" is a traditional Occitane wedding song. It's sung in Gascone dialect. AMT open it like a mantra, but what initially seems an "om" immediately changes into a celtic choir. I wouldn't be surprised to see Alan Stivell in the lineup, and effectively the longhair- longbearded guy in the sleeve photo is similar to the Breton harpist. Five minutes of celtic choir and the instruments replace it with a piece of psychedelic folk which grows slowly and becomes just a little more chaotic in the following minutes. The disturbing high-pitched electronic whistles and the quite absurd and apparently meaningless noise of the first albums is no longer present. At minute 11 the track is effectively chaotic and noisy but we have followed a path to reach this noise, and it has a sense. It's a fusion between Krautrock and Folk that last for some minutes, becoming more psychedelic at about minute 14 but without loosing the folk element. I think I'd like to be invited to a wedding of this kind. The electric and highly distorted guitar increases the noise at minute 15. At this point I could expect to hear Syd Barrett's vocalisms as in Pow R Toc H. It's a very floydian part even if the guitar doesn't have anything to do with the sounds used by both Barrett and Gilmour, but the tempo and the bass may come from Pompeii. They should have had a lot of fun while composing and playing it. Everything slows down at minute 20 when the music acquires a more oriental (far-eastern) mood even if still mixed with celtic-medieval melodies. The song restarts. There are just strange voices singing, like spirits in a foggy night, while the main celtic theme is continuously repeated. It's minute 23 when a guitar major chord introduces a new theme. The bass enters strongly and a new melody, still "folkedelic", begins. The heaviness of this part reminds to 35007's "Liquid". At minute 28 the drums change the tempo and the noise increases, then everything calms down. At minute 30 this mixture of high-pitched sounds and keyboard major chords seems like it was chill-out, but after one minute guitar and bass change again. At minute 31 it gives the impression of being a "coda", but there are still 9 minutes ahead. The guitar chord suddenly changes with an additional dissonance at minute 32, while a bass scale is what remains of the original melody. The noise increases but at minute 35 the main theme re-appears even if immersed in the noise. A very good acoustic guitar solo appears in the last minute to close this very good track. 2/3 of the albums are gone.

"Bois-Tu De La Biere"(Do You Drink Beer?) looks like another traditional French song with some background noises, just to remind that this is a psychedelic band. Not bad also those 3 minutes, specially when the noises replace the voice on the guitar harping.

A spacey start for the last track: "Bon Voyage Au LSD" (Have a nice trip with LSD). More than an acid trip it looks more like a space trip, similar to the pink Tangerine Dream and dark as the most ambient works of Senmuth. The spare guitar notes contribute in adding a sense of Krautrock, but the sound of the violin that appears here and there has the taste of the contemporary classic. If this album has a defect is that this track doesn't have anything to do with the previous two. They are equally good, but it's like this track was reused as a filler from a different recording session. Respect to Tangerine Dream the things move faster. The rhythmless beginning is chaotic and noisy just after 5 minutes and the chaos increases helped by drums accents after minute 8. At minute 12 the guitar becomes rock and even with all the background noise this starts sounding effectively as a late 60s acid thing. A sort of skilled version of Amon Duul, but with more modern sounds, like the second part of Tsunami of the already mentioned 35007. This goes ahead with the volume decreasing until the sudden end.

A very good psychedelic album. something that honestly I wasn't expecting to find.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
