Arzathon biography
ARZATHON is Ralf Bevis, born in Germany (Dulken). Ralf has been active in the underground home taping scene since the early 80's, where he recorded and released albums under the moniker Gypsy, in addition to starting his own label, Rodent Tapes, which is still active today. Today, Rodent Tapes is to be found on the Internet Archives site (Rodent Tapes Backstage) where many free downloads are available, such as Radio Edits of tracks from albums available on its bandcamp page.

These days Ralf is active as ARZATHON, an experimental electronic project with many releases, a lot of them collaborations with other artists. The sound of ARZATHON varies, not being restricted to one area of EM, having elements of drone, Berlin school, dark ambient, abstract and more. ARZATHON's sound is usually extremely psychedelic and very entrancing soundscapes for fans of mind melting music. He also releases projects as Heavy Metal Vampires on Nuclear Waste / Trolls on Acid / Dreamtime Troubadours. Some of the artists he has collaborated with are: Don Campau, Franco Falsini, Kristianne Gale, and many many others.

Besides music projects ARZATHON also works on film projects... at the moment he is working on a film about Homelessness. Info about this project can be found on his facebook group page, Homelessness, On The Frontline, In The Trenches.

Review by admireArt

— First review of this album —
4 stars A natural transition between primitive roots and sophisticated electronics.

Not only does this release, 2006, "Disorder of Thinking" by Arzathon (Ralf Bevis, born in Sweden), continues and simplifies many prog electronic, eclectic, folk, RiO, Krautrock and crossover musician's ambitions to blend synths with kalimbas, electric guitars with crickets' chirping, white noise with gutural heartfelt ethnic voices and drum boxes with log drums, it makes everything work out as if it was the natural order of things. His skill and knowledge of these foreign influences makes him able to transmute these to become an authentic mean of musical expression therefore language.

As if pre-planned such an endeavor is explosive yet Arzathon keeps himself from unnecessary antics and focuses entirely on his personal way of structuring this jigsaw puzzle to create a perfect balance between both worlds.

Daring yet unpretentious, extremely attractive without being condescending or fashionable nor "spectacular". This is a memorable and highly recommendable addition to this P/E section and without doubt to your Prog collection.

****4.5 PA stars.

P.D. Closer to Krautrock and modern electronics in styling than "cosmic" electronics.

Thanks to sheavy for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
