3 stars Just take a look at this cover isn't it creepy? Music Of Erich Zann is secend Mekong Delta album and we can easily hear the band was very consequent in their style. Weird technical thrash metal. Not really far from what Living Death (other band of Mekong Delta guitarists) shown. Most of the material in here is fast and furious and really extremely weird. With first sounds of Age Of Agony we sneak into the twisted world of gnoms and creepy illusions. All upside down. True Lies is very interesting piece because similar ideas guys used for their epic concept Dances Of Death. Hatred is very aggressive track mostly due to crazy vocals of Keil. Interludium is instrumental piece filled with classical music elements. Memories Of Tomorrow is also very interesting track and again I can hear something that was later used on Dances Of Death. I, King, Will Come is the slowest song on this album and more simple than the rest. Some Black Sabbath-like riffs. Well not bad. Epilogue isn't metal song at all. We have mostly vocals here, lack of guitars and drums. Something good for the end. But the last on this release is instrumental creepy track The Gnom. It's fabulous adaptation of Mussorgsky's classical piece. To sum it all up. Music Of Erich Zann is good album. Maybe it isn't must-have release but still recommended for fans of thrash metal. And this one I have in that remastered and new mixed version. It isn't far from original sound. It's just a bit louder and clearer. I rate this by 3.5 stars.
