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.
