This is an overwhelming album. It's not exactly my stle of music throughout.
It's too weird, too avantgard for me. But there are a few pieces I like very
much, Your Soul - already known partly, due to your live video posted I don't
remember when, and Sabra Y Shatila. Yeah, I'm a sucker for the sax. :-)
While listening to it, I thought something like: John Petrucci's evil
brother on some very illegal substance, consulting Stockhausen on producing a
concept album. They invite the insane free-jazz sax player and let it all out.
It sounds like a colossal effort, esepcially seeing, that you can perform all
of this live. I liked it especially, when there was some melody in a more
conventional sense or when the screaming/growling metal influences pushed
The production is interesting and very characteristic. To begin with I
wasn't a fan on the drum production, but now I start to get it. It's certainly
so distinct, that I can pick it out from a mile away. :-) And it really does
work. Partly the same ghoes for the electric guitars. It doesn't sound like
the obvious solution and at first, I had the impression, tat it sounded muddy.
But having listened to a few pieces now, it starts to grow on me.
One question, of personal interest: how did you create the synth bass sound
for Your Soul? The pumping, bubbling sound in the beginning. I was very
attracted to it, already, when I heard it in the video.
Thank you for sharing this album freely as well as releasing it
commercially. And then at such high quality. OK, it took me almost 7 hours to
download, but now I can enjoy it to the fullest extent. :-)
