Pride, Mike – “Drummer’s Corpse” – [Aum Fidelity]
What happens when you have seven drummers, three vocalists and one guitarist? PURE FUCKING MADNESS! Mike Pride has done just that. In a collage of frantic drumming, droned out guitars, feedback induced vocals, and more noises going on than you head can stand, this album borders on insanity and hypnotic trance. There are two tracks on this bad boy; track one is a 33 minute long free jazz jam out with all seven drummers; track two is 26 minutes of sweet melodic guitar mixed with five people talking over each other. Both are a tour-de-force to be reckoned with.
