Album Review

Preston, Joe and Menche, Daniel – “Cerberic Doxology ” – [Anthem Records]

Thurston Hunger   10/21/2008   A Library, CD

Gregorian monk gone amok, slaughter on stone, blood on the
drone. Basso profundo loopus maximus to start things off,
dropped in a bottomless pit of reverb thus after two and a
half minutes the (one assumes?) human element vanishes and
all that is left is the cavern of sound. This blackness
opens up like an odyssey into Ligeti space. Black holes
ain’t got nothin’ on the gravity here, it might be nice to
take this 24 minute track and blast its mp3 over into that
online silo and see if your internet connection implodes.
After awhile the thing feels like a krygyr rumble on the
bottom and a four-note vox inhumana drift on top. At the
end, the original human or orc or yeti or whatever it is
returns back from the darkness and sings along with its
echoes. Comes with a dual-sided DVD as well, which as a
radio station means little…but those who kneel before
the Thrones may want to track that down for further
dark worship. Happy Halloween, this is the soundtrack to
giant alien apples bobbing for your head.

We got the CD on Anthem, but vinyl on Discourage exists
with 20 count ’em 20 locked grooves….drool….
