Colour Haze - All Elecktrohasch Records by Eric Nielsen 7.26.8
Heralds from the ark end of the cave beckon, enter with eyes closed. The metal darkness continues to kicks ass, as it had in "Tempel" and "Los Sounds de Krauts". Like the Allegory of the Cave, the shadows and sounds emanate and lift us out of the fire-filled pits into the sacred enlightening sun. Houses burn gently to the ground, settling as things turn down.
Fantastically arranged and orchestrated, these pieces fill and create longing with heavily emotive instrument and lyric sounds. The voice sits in the cradle of mad tight pulse blasts, so delicate and raw. Sound-crafted elements wash over into Hendrix, Tool, a meticulous Acid Mothers Temple, Chinchilla, Queens of the Stone Age, Fugazi, deep SUNNO))) and long kraut builds of warm scales from these Germans.
The musicians reign supreme with blistering toned organs, tight tucked and laced jams and some beautiful restraint. It's the heavy stuff with spare voices on the disc that really gets me.
Weather the storm, the northern blizzard that may take your life, old Sabbath evil nature cell regeneration that make the passing so rewarding. Euphoria, blood running adrenaline induced listening. Blackened to damn or destined to fight? Set down in a newfound land to survive. Psychedelia welcome. Like 2 or 3 days without food, making rituals with fire and waking up after your deepest sleep this music puts you somewhere else.
