DER BLUTHARSCH AND THE INFINITE CHURCH OF THE LEADING HAND- SUCHT & ORDNUNG CD (WKN 49)
This is a very special band and I was lucky to catch some of their great show at Roadburn festival last year. Their previous album that I reviewed was pretty strange but I liked it. This group has 28 releases on their bandcamp site. The artwork is minimal and so is the information, a small insert in the CD, with cool art but no info about songs, who played what or anything, really..
Anyway, this album is only three tracks and the opening track is just a total killer heavy instrumental psychedelic rock number. I love the guitar riff and soloing while the bass and drums just keep a great groove going and then a space out and then back into some melodic guitar soloing. Track 2 also starts off with a quite heavy guitar riff but a slower pace and some female spoken word vocals in German. The music is heavy and dark and very psychedelic and intense at times. Track 3 starts slowly and then a moto-electro groove kicks in and off we go!! A lovely spacey guitar section follows before the female vocal (in English) kicks in on this sort of space rock track. The track slowly dissolves around 11mins and you think it is over and then it comes blasting back… A really cool album.. Wow…
