Sea Zombies – “It Died In Africa” – [Digitalis Industries]
John Xela and Brad Rose (The North Sea) are the minds behind this terror. Two 20 minute tracks of darkness and despair. The first having a dirty drone with a man ranting on in a foreign language (African men speaking in French), sounds religious in the manner he’s speaking, and the title – repent – concludes that thought. He disappears about halfway through, the drone thickens, then he’s back to finish it out. The second track has a different approach, with a lighter, synth loop, but with the same man ranting and raving. Love how the music changes the way your perceive his speech.
