4 stars This truly is a unique album. It's an all instrumental record except for the few vocal melodies and yells, but no real lyrics.This band employs two lead guitarists, a bass player and a drummer / percussionist. Being from Turkey there is a middle-Eastern feel to their sound at times, and I would describe their music as dark with a great rhythm section being the driving force. There is a definite psychedelic vibe going on here and I can't in all honesty think of another band that they sound like, although I did think of TOOL once with the drumming. I also thought of IN THE WOODS... as well with the dark and heavy sound they often employ. Like I said,they are unique.This is a long record of 73 minutes and I think they could have taken out a couple of the songs in the middle where I found it dragged a bit. Hard to believe these guys were a Thrash Metal band because much of this recording is slow and atmosphereic.

Some of the highlights are first of all the opening track "Crying Game" with it's odd metered drumming and fantastic bass lines leading the way. "Fok" has a lot of time shifts with the guitar taking a more prominant role.The melody after 3 minutes is great. "Efsane" is the third longest track and it has a real middle-Eastern feel to it. There is an extended atmospheric section before it gets back to the original melody.

"Hindu" has some incredible bass and drums that create a heavy undercurrent with the guitars playing over the top. Nice. Lots of tempo changes in "Carklar" with the percussion dominating early before giving way to some heavy guitar and drums later. "Goc" has such a hypnotic rhythm and the heaviness that comes in after 4 minutes as the guitars grind away is simply awesome ! "Yollar" is all over the map.This is the one with the heavy TOOL like drumming after 2 minutes as well as having a spacey, psychedelic soundscape. Some mesmerizing percussion later.

Heavy, psychedelic, atmospheric and hypnotic. Excellent!
